What happened to player ratings in Gin Rummy today?
Posted by Sergei1970 5 Oct 2017 5:54am

Hey, what happened to player ratings in Gin Rummy? Any major rating system adjustments? Have nearly 300 points removed overnight: down from 2241 to 1950 (that without playing any rated games and just a couple non-rated).

Ratings lowered for excessively selective play

We have found that ratings can receive an unreasonable boost if one plays and wins against those players who artificially boost their ratings.
Unreasonably high ratings were decreased across the board for all players.

When you win against someone who didn't cheat but benefited in a rated win against someone who did, you'd also receive an artificially unreasonable boost in rating.
At this time all unreasonable ratings for all players are reduced so that will become less of an issue. We apologize for inconvenience.

If you are a goal-oriented player, instead of boosting your numerical rating, you may consider Ladder competitions or $Ticket play.

Wow, I've been here at GC for over a decade and have never seen this approach to ratings adjustment. I applaud GameColony for monitoring and adjusting ratings that are obviously unrealistic.

Agree with LadyAwe. Become a tix player and work your way up the ladder. Also start playing players that have any rating, not just one that will benefit yours.

Is that why some players who are sitting at a table, and waiting for a join, refuse to play you? They cite points as a reason not to play.

At you can play games of skill only -- play for free or play for $prizes!. According to the statutes of most states in the United States, gambling is defined as: "risking something of value upon the outcome of a contest of chance". (Also see No Gambling!).   The skill (as opposed to chance) is predominant in games of skill. Playing games of skill for $prizes, therefore, has nothing to do with gambling as it is not a contest of chance -- the more skillful player will win far more often. The chance element of a 'gamble' is either insignificant or missing. When players compete in tournaments or games of skill for $prizes -- it is "competitive entertainment" rather then "gambling". The more skilled winner will always win more matches, tournaments and $prizes.
