Rank changes in correspondence matches

I have a correspondence game ongoing with an opponent that was something like a 3k when the game started, and now is a 4d (week or so later).

when he finishes wiping the floor with my ass, curious to know how is the rank affected?
Will I be losing against a 3k? a 4d? something in between? How are rank changes in correspondence games taken into account?


Regardless whether it is correspondence or live, at the end of a ranked game both players’ rating points are adjusted based on their rating at the END of the game, not the beginning or any point in between.


So then would it be worth it to fight the rating system?

Your options are leaving the server or playing unranked. Whether it’s worth it for you, I cannot say. Personally, I love our rating system.
