Re: LCZero: Progress and Scaling. Relation to CCRL Elo

[...] So tactics seems to be the Achilles heel of Leela, at least at this fast TC. I have evidence that Leela is horrible at tactics at any time control. I posted a reproducible problem on the LCZero forum, but the responses I got are mostly from fan boys that don't want to see the problem. https:/...

That someone has to be the engine that plays, and as long as the adjucation tb is state of the art there will be no problem. I would call that progress. It has to be the engine...
