earned vs deserved
Posted: Apr 17, 2020, 4:46 AM

karl brought up an interesting point last night.
essentially that the algorithm is accurate but based quantitatively.
meaning there is truth in the numbers of games played.
and i applaud everyone on the leaderboard for their success!
but there are some who defend their rating by simply not playing.
i have played every top player who will accept a live challenge and taken their points.
to my mind their rating is well deserved and honorable.
so i ask everyone on the leaderboard...play me live!
do not hide behind your rating.
who knows? you might even win and maintain your honor.
what? cant whup a lowly green?
man up!

Not sure who this is addressed to, since I've played you many times in the last month and gone up in rating points. But, you are aware that each separate game and speed has its own active leaderboard, from which one disappears after a month of inactivity, correct?

I don't want to play non tournament rules games. If you take one of my unrated invites, play tourney

I respect a rational response...I have been told by one that he "doesn't want my points" An assumption that no one should make...If a player wants 2 play U Y not...Who R U 2 show pity...please show me no pity set your a** down and play...Sorry if I strayed off the topic...O yea wat was the topic, do U deserve a certain ranking? i would like 2 say thanks 2 the Hippo,m.r.r. & Watz 4 taking the time 2 share strategy and all ways willing 2 set down and take my points...

i play live rated because its dynamic.
if a player is willing to put up their points, then i expect their best game.
doesnt mean i want their points.
only that they are willing to play for them, which i respect.
so yes, out of consideration,i often offer to cancel rated live games.
sometimes not.
never meant as a sign of disrespect one way or the other.
and my opponent always has the option to choose not to cancel.
to my mind, it is a simple matter of honor.

the rude bottom line is... if you cant defend your points (tho you earned them) then you dont deserve them.

Vic we all have our reasons 4 being apart of this...If a player chooses not 2 play who R we 2 say that they R a lesser player(not deserving) ...? Please don't do me any favors, if U would rather not play me(4 what ever reason, that option should be 4 every one else) i understand...The reason I take it personal is because I like U... I have had more fun & re pore W/ You in the live setting than all others combined...I didn't mean 2 make this personal,but when I read ur MESSAGE: It was a bit unfair...But who am I ?
