I am new to the game and I am aware of area and territory scoring, I am just unaware how you know which one is going to be used at the end of a game? When I start a game, how do I know which scoring will be used?
When accepting a match there is a rules column.
Japanese is territory
Chinese is area
Other rulesets are rare
Bots play only Chinese,
Automatch is Japanese by default, but you can change it in the settings.
When already in game you can check the ruleset in the right game panel>game information
But mind you regardless of the ruleset the result will almost always be the same, unless you are doing something wrong
Thank you so much for the support
My pleasure, welcome to OGS
