Hi there.
I started a new account and read I had to play 20 rated games in order to get a rating and so I did. Now it puts me at BC even though I’won 25/17 and some of them were 14, 15 and 16 kuy.
I put myself around 16-15 kuy, but what i don’t understand is why after playing 20+ games as 17? I now start as BC.
Can anyone elaborate?
Kind regards

Maybe there are fewer games rated than you actually think. Take look at the rules.

Code:
Rating games: Games with opponents with certified ranks are rating games.
However, the following games are excluded.

Games on boards other than 19×19
Games of less than two moves
Games with professionals (whose ranks have “p” attached)
Games with players in Beginners Class
Games with opponents more than three ranks different in strength (games in which the handicap is correct for a difference of three ranks or less will be rated).
Games in the “free play room”, the room for practice games with robots
Pair Go games

In the Beginners Class, players are promoted to 17k after five wins regardless of their number of losses.
Conversely, when 17k drops below the demotion line, they are demoted to Beginners Class.


Maybe this is your case. Just win 5 games to get back to 17k.

My take is that Pandanet has trouble with the ?-ranks and doesnt calculate the first rank well.
I myself had started with an 8k? rank and played some games but not 20, with pretty even results. Then I stopped. Some month later I was already stronger than 8k and resumed playing. I won the first 3 or 4 of those games after the break to finish the 20 games with a positive score(I think 11:9, but maybe it was 12:8), and for some reason the rank system still decided to rank me down to 9k. This was pretty annoying as even on 8k I now felt like a sandbagger, having improved since chosing 8k as starting rank...
