Below are two games - 1 win and 1 loss. Curious if people would be able to guess my rank based on the quality of my moves, or if the only reliable indicator of rank is really the win/loss ratio.

Just for fun!

Game 1 - I'm black


Game 2 - I'm black again

Before I looked at the games I too suspected the classic troll of posting superhuman bot games and pretending they are yours, but I'm going to stick my neck out and say there are too many moves I'm sure are bad and not just bot genius above my understanding.

For the first game, I saw some moves I was suspicious of, but not enough to judge rank.

However, in the second game, I can’t understand move 55 and the continuation. Ditto for 79 and 81. 99 seems like a reading error.

Based on that, I can’t say you’re weaker than me, I feel like I’ve seen stronger players make these mistakes on a bad day. But I think SDK.

Thank you all for playing!

I’m a 2 dan on fox, but looks like everyone thinks I’m a sdk based on my moves, haha. Feels bad, man XP.

But it’s true, most of times I rely on my opponents to make mistakes to win my games. I tend to try to intimidate my opponents or trick them somehow.

Well, 2d on Fox is probably low SDK in the assumed ranking systems my answer was given in of EGF or KGS. Knotwilg's more precise answer was pretty much my feeling too. So I'd say we were pretty darn close. I was going to say low SDK going on low dan after the first game but the second game had too many clumsy shapes that what I call a dan player wouldn't make. Fox dan sure though.

I'm 4d on fox, 1k on OGS, 2d on KGS and perceive myself as 1d-2d
So if you are 2d on fox my guess is pretty much spot on.
