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.
