I love the feeling of the games, because they are more serious than ranked games and the clock has more time. I feel like I am playing in hikaru no go, and imagine hitting the timer with every move xD

Anyone else get feelings like that?

Sometimes :) One good thing is that the people in the ASR play tons of free games, so their ranks are a little suspect. That makes it harder to prejudge your opponent, which ramps up the tension...

I think I kind of know what you mean. I like the atmosphere of the ASR games the best of all online games I have played. The seriousness of league play is exciting and encourages me to play my best.

I think that the high performance of lower ranked players is not necessarily cause by being under-ranked due to many free games. I know there have been many occasions when I have transcended my normal skill level and played well and even won against people 5-6 stones stronger than me. They usually make comments about how I am far better than a 7 kyu, but that doesn't stop me from losing about half of my rated games.
