Mistaken Handicaps

Thank you.

I would blame your high deviation (144).

In my experience this (too few handicap stones) happened only when I played against rather new players (with high deviation).

In your case however this started sometime between October 15, 2018 11:57 AM and October 17, 2018 8:23 AM. There were a lot of updates around this time. I think one of them introduced a change in what the handicap calculator treats as high deviation.

At least handicap is correct for the 2 games I started yesterday. So I think this is no error in the OGS codebase.

I haven’t observed something like that. Contrary in my experience it is always the overall rank. I look the ratings up all time a game starts, therefor I’m pretty sure about that.
