At least 2x tonight, I have played far better players and lost. The problem is, why am I losing so many points when playing such higher point players. Ie.. Went up against a 350 player, lost and still had 8 points taken. I don't mind losing points, but when I have won, I get no where that value. For that matter, they only gained 4 points. So why did I lose 8. They had a score of 350, and I am at near 150
am I missing something?

The amount of points you lose is a percentage of your current score (you can't lose more than 200 in one game though) and is not affected by the score of the people you're fighting. If you lost 8 and they only got 4, I suspect they had to share the winnings with someone else or it was a team game, otherwise they should have got the exact amount lost.

This has happened many times and I finally decided to get a picture of it for you to review. As you can see, I was playing 2 members with scores of 246 and 977. I had 174 at the time and my partner was so new that I am not even sure he was in the game. My question is why would I lose 9 points when playing members of this caliber? Anyway...picture is attached...fyi.

Roadkill you've lost 9 from 179. it is more or less 5%. and it is usually behavior

Blast07 is very right. This is totally normal and fair. It will do this every time. Just notice that you are lucky because if i lose a team game i lose 100 points.

Question (im sorry I really dont mean to keep bringing up issues)
I am wondering about the scoring. I am including a screenshot where I came in second and lost more points than the 3rd place guy who has 2x as many points as me. Is this right? Why would I lose more points when I placed higher and have less points to begin with?

Hmm, that looks like a bug. You should never lose a higher percentage in 2nd place than 3rd place. Thanks for posting that, will take a close look at my scoring code...
