Still Provisional at 22 Turn Based Keryo Games
Posted: Dec 6, 2008, 3:16 AM

Dweebo,

Any clue as to why I am still showing as provisional in Turn Based Keryo after completing 22 games? Just curious if something had changed and I am missing something...

Hope you are doing well and wearing many smiles!

For turn based games you lose provisional status after you have 20 games, not counting draws. I am not sure if this is intentional, seeing as how I am not Dweebo, but I just know that for my rating, and the rating of other people I know, it did not count draws in determining provisional status.

Okay, I understand the provisional thing...so...explain this:

When I go to the ratings/rankings page and select provisional under Turn Based Keryo I don't show up!??

Given my provisional status as a Turn Based Keryo player one would assume that searching the ratings/rankings with the check box "include provisional" would produce a list that included my name, what gives?

curiously confused ~partica

An inactive and provisional player would need to check the box(es) for both categories to pull the appropriate database query......keep in mind that TB games aren't counted until the set is complete.

in turn based your tied sets dont count towards the 20 games needed. only games in sets where either you won both or lost both will count. so if youve been having draws, or also known as split sets, it may take you a while to get your color and get on a leader board. either start sweeping, or start getting swept!

That's kind of a let-down.
I've been playing TB again lately to get a rating in TB pente.
At first I thought every game counted; then realized sets showed up as one game.
Now I hear only set-sweeps rate for provisional games played towards a rating and it seems like I've mostly been tying sets.
In theory, one could play an infinate amount of games and never get rated if sets were always tied.
Almost sounds discriminatory.

Any low rated players out there care to play me so I can get a rating?

When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro!
