Up to now, I’ve only tested myself with the ‘Training’ modules and think I may have plateaued out for the time being.
The menu bar offers the option to ‘compete’ in ‘friendly’ or ‘rated’ games. I know I could find out more about the process by going in and asking to compete with someone, but I was wondering if someone would be kind enough to let me know what’s involved before I do.
If I hit ‘random’, am I given the names of other people who have also expressed an interest to play a random opponent, and is it done by ‘rating’? I’m very happy to play someone rated much higher than me as I want to improve - but it might not be much fun for them to win too easily if they’re rated well above me!
Also, what exactly is a ‘rated’ game? Is that for everyone - or only in certain circumstances? Does it mean that you could lower your rating if you did badly? (As opposed to increasing it if you do well?) I wasn’t sure how useful/important it was for someone like me, who is just testing the waters, so to speak.
I’ve entered Memory League season 4 and thought it might get me used to competing if I tried out this option - so any advice you can give me will be gratefully received. (Even down to the problems of competing in different time zones. I’m in the UK so realise I could still be asleep when some people are wide awake!)
