When you schedule a game, please post it here or in the calendar thread so we can put it on the calendar.

Thanks to everybody who’s working on the league! Very grateful!

I really appreciate there being a calendar again (so thanks saxmaam!) but I’m curious why a calendar with moderators rather than an open wiki like where people can just enter their own games as they are scheduled? To me it seems like it just creates more work for league volunteers, but maybe I’m missing something!

So glad people are still finding the time and energy to make the league happen!

No, I just didn’t think about researching and choosing a wiki. I guess we’ll stick with google for now.

@saxmaam has a good point. I think I will try to clean up the thread regularly; however, it’ll be great if the original poster could delete the post after all the games in that post are completed.

Yeah, would be great if Discourse could notify post edits…

Hello, I withdrew from the league two months ago and am not able to rejoin at the moment.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

PSA on time settings:

May 2015

Time setting: Byo-yomi, 30:00+5x30s

I wonder why i am not in this pairings?..

I’ll be helping out as well. don’t check the forums as much as i should so if you see me online you can let me know directly and i’ll add your information it to the calendar asap

Edited pairings list accordingly. Thanks for letting me know!

League rules require 50% completion of games from the previous month. From our Challonge records, it seems that you only played 2 games out of 6 in class E1.

We are sorry for the inconvenience! However, feel free to come back in June! :smile:

Thank you for all your work!
I think though that overall ranks would be more useful for pairings, cause if I understand it right they are closer to the “real” level. For example lots of people play mostly correspondence and get better, but live rank stays the same and gets lower and lower than overall. I think if you pair together people with the same overall rank they would be more closely matched. Or not?
Just noticed several people in group several stones below their level of play…

I guess it depends a lot on the person. Personally I would consider quitting if I got matched based on overall rank since it is a lot worse than my live rank due to bad performance in correspondence. At least lots of won or lost league games will have some influence on the live rank if somebody doesn’t play any other live games, while it would be possible to have enough correspondence or blitz games and playing much better or worse in them to negate any influence on overall rating. Of course it would be better to make exceptions for anyone with obviously false life rating.

I was one who wanted to pair by live rank. The games are live. If I am paired by my correspondence rank, I lose every game. In March I won zero games. In February, I won one.

I guess if I had to be paired by overall rank, I’d make a separate account and only play live games in the league account. But then what’s the point of having the different ranks computed?


ok, guess it’s not so simple
till now I was sure that usually overall rank is more dependable and higher (or the same:))

it would be interesting to check what is in fact more common
maybe there isn’t a decision that is good for everybody

i think the 4 ranks in OGS is extremely confusing and isn’t helping anyone

maybe there are enough league games that we can maintain a league ordering just
based on win/loss like a ladder?

but sure, since the games are live, using the live rank makes more sense Sax
