I see when games timeout quickly, they are considered annulled, how does this get applied to my rank, and where is the tipping point?
Hello @Canada1867, an annulled game has no effect on your rank
The formula for cancelling (and I think also for timing out of) games is that if you cancel a game on an [n]x[n] board before [n] moves board have been played, the game is annulled. So, if you cancel a 9x9 game before 9 moves have been played (I think the ninth move is NOT included), then the game is annulled, likewise 13 moves for 13x13 and 19 moves for 19x19.
Hope this helps
Thing is, I always “win” those annulled games, and it always counts for timing out and resigning. Because, someone decides to resign before making a move in a tournament match. Sorry for the rant.
Not sure I understand … if this happens regularly with a certain opponent then I recommend drawing the attention of a moderator to one of those games via this button:
Appears that the N moves in NxN games is inaccurate now and it was changed to 2 moves before games are inescapable. Just posting this because it doesn’t appear anywhere else on the site and I lost two games that were ranked because this thread was misleading.
