How do I fix my rating?

Postby GunsOfAugust1914 » 22 Feb 2019, 04:01

When I was new and just joined the site, I joined a game to replace Russia. But I didn't know I could view it first. When I joined Russia didn't have any SCs so I had to immediately surrender because there was no point. Now I have -24 on my record and a surrender. Is there any way to fix that? Mods?

Play more games, and earn enough points to counter that. And don't surrender next time. Also, never hit "surrender" unless you mean to voluntarily quit; if you had just stayed with the game, even losing, you would have had zero (or nearly zero) points changed on your rating.

It's a hard lesson I had to learn too.

Thanks for the reply. So there's no way to remove it? It's just an unfortunate stain on my record.

I have two games like these so I know how frustrating it is. Weep today, get it out of the system and you'll get over it tomorrow. We learned the lesson the hard way.

The other lesson - don't surrender. Even if you have no dots. It's a lesser stain to lose than to surrender + I believe (and someone will correct me if I'm wrong) that you lose fewer points if you keep playing till the end.
