a mystifying rant on the game of go

Hah!

Just played a 10 kyu player having a bad day on KGS. The player resigned, flattering me so as to make him- or herself feel better. Meaning that since that was my first game under new profile, KGS awarded me the rank of (9k?).

HAH. HAH. HAH.

Just so you understand, 9k is the rank I would get if I played very earnestly for at least a year. I find this very funny, mostly because they take rank really seriously on KGS and now I have to slowly set my rank back to its proper level, apologising all the way to people who will have expected a tougher match. Big ooops.

I'm a 20kyu at best!

*snicker*

you are better than 20kyu..
when I was regularly playing on pandanet I got a ranking of 20kyu (until I stopped playing regularly)

even then you could still beat me.

Well, I don't know what my pandanet ranking would have been, they tend to vary a bit between servers. I just know I was struggling to get above 22 kyu on KGS. Of course, they say they've tightened up the rankings a bit.

it depends on the server... because of the difference in international rankings.. at one time a 1k in korea was close to professional... beginners start at 30k in japan ... or 20 (however they say kyu in korean) to a 2 dan you are both beginers... how cute...

Is it 20 "kyu" in Korea then?

I know. And I'll be a beginner for quite a while yet, I think. At least we are both amused, if for different reasons.

Who are you?
