i am new and I suspect my ranking is not correct. It seemed reasonable to play a few ranked games against a computer to get a better reading. When I challenge I get consistently rejected. Why is that?
Note, I saw a suggestion to look at the computer’s profile,but I cannot see how to get to it.
Some bots will tell you why they rejected your offer… but it’s either
a) your rank is outside of the 9-stone difference required for ranked games
b) you wanted to play with a setting the bot does not support/allow (unranked/9x9…).
Check here, I think (well more like hope) most of the info should still be up to date.
So a lot of people here don’t seem to know about the restrictions set in place by the bots admin, not ogs. The restrictions vary bot to bot, but if you aren’t align with the restrictions the bot will decline the challenge. So to make things easier i’m going to post the current restrictions of all the bots here.
These are for normal game types only meaning 9x9, 13x13 and 19x19 I don’t know if they can play custom and im not trying every bot to find out. If a setting is missing feel free to post …
