Classicist Application, Aspiring

Postby Aurelin » 30 Jul 2018, 19:10

I have completed one game on this site from the start and one surrendered position, no surrenders or NMRs. I’m not premium, so I don’t know my NMR rate. When I first looked here, I didn’t understand why people hated NMRs so much until I actually started playing, and I hated it so much. XD Grace periods shouldn’t even exist.
I know I’m applying super quick, but one completed game is all you really need, so yeah!

Grace periods only exist in “protected” games, an option that can be toggled on or off at game creation.

Stats only count ranked games (except for surrenders and NMRs, which count both ranked and unranked).

Classicists look at rank and unranked, but I don’t think they count 2pc.

Your consistency is spot on. Join a ranked game and give it a whirl. Once done then apply again, I am sure you will be put on the Aspring list although I don't mod that group.

144967 should be enough to get you in as an Aspiring Classicist. Just have to wait for Buachaille or Jon to be around to take care of it :)

No, 2pc games don't count because they aren't rank or unranked, they are friends games.
