Reverse komi to be rated

For one side, handicap games can be rated on OGS.

For another side many players on OGS don’t like to play with handicap. But if you want to use a reverse komi your game will not be rated

So I ask myself, why couldn’t we have a reverse komi system and rated?

By extension, could we bid the komi (pie system, one propose the komi, other chose the color) and same, integrate the pie system for rated games?

A challenge would be calibrating the reverse komi. We have stacks of data about handicap games, none about reverse komi games. Chicken and egg there :slight_smile:

I wonder how close Kata’s estimation of score on handicap games is (I think it’s like 10-15 pts/stone). At least that could be a starting point.
