    Yay!!! Plus, about two weeks ago, I posted a thread about having cleared 1500. Another 100 points or so, and people will start calling me a cheat. Then they'll analyse my games, and find a 20% match up rate or so.

    Soon I'll be back in the 1500s, but still, its an accomplishment.

    Well done - it is always good to hit a peak rating like this. And, you never know, maybe it will not go down as much as you think. When a player crosses a rating barrier once, it is quite common for them to get back up again.

    Yes, breaking into a new 00 is always an accomplishment.

    Congrats! Another 100, then send me a challenge so I can knock you back down.

    personally breaking 1600 is a big deal. but at the same time you have to remember that any game with a lower level person will plummet your score. that is why if u look carefully all the bigtimers will only place people of the same score so they dont kill their score. u should do the same and then u wont have to worry bout losing points. just a word of advice. idk if u want to take it or not. but ne way congrats on the big 16

    I made it past 1600 on this site and then plummeted to the middle 1300's in the next two weeks
