Has there been a change in Slomato tie-breaks?  it used to be that a player could look at the tiebreaks and see if they could afford a draw, because the advantage of the tiebreak was pre-determined.  It used to be that a player could look at the tiebreaks between rounds and it would not change.  Now it changes.  What gives?

this plainly shows after round 3 mdbgaccp has the tie-break over ChessSensei1.  Yet just before ChessSensei offered a draw to mdbgaccp, the tie break looked like this—
> tiebreak:
> ChessSensei1     2.0   5.5 1700 1937477084
> mdbgaccp       2.0   5.0 1699 1424268980

that’s the big reason ChessSensei offered the draw, he thought the tie-break would not come back to bite him.  Sooooo….

Has tie-break been changed?


I tried looking in the help files.

Hi

  I looked at your post and the grid for that tourney (see below).  I don’t think you can determine tiebreaks in the middle of a tourney because it is not just those players you mentioned but all of the players still playing that affects the tiebreak score.  But to answer your question, No ... nothing has changed pertaining to tie-breakers in Slomato.
