Not completely correct here bones. You lose a lot more points for a loss the higher your score is, but, you never really got so high, so I guess I would not expect you to know this.
Now, back to the original question, is the top 5 more most games played at one time accurate or was their a recent change?
Blitz i think what he is saying is that both players lost about 600 points from their score when playing this many games.
ok, but, if they both played around the same level of competition and ranks out in public, it is easier for HA to lose more in score, this is the point I am trying to make. It is not quite the same, and HA I think is trying to say his was a better achievement, although it is crazy for me to think about that massive amount of games at one time, so, both should be applauded.
Like I said--I dont think either achievement is great since turns were missed by both of us. For someone to beat these records they should not miss any games--we both did though. After I missed I had some players sit for me a bit too as I didnt feel the record was pure--not sure about AoN. As for points I think there is a huge difference between 400 and 1400 but at the same time I think the reason AoN dropped so far was he would get relatively caught up and then not play for a while. I would take smaller breaks which probably helped keep my score high. When u r playing your score goes up and when u dont play it goes down as your opponents are winning games while you sleep. No matter what it is much harder than anyone can believe unless they try it. It is mentally and physically exhausting when trying this.
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit.
