Revision of the 6th PGETC rating on European Go Database
Based on the EGF Executive Board decision, the Pandanet Go European Championship will go back to the previous policy of rating the PGETC games. The games are rated C Class (weight factor 0.5) and individual team members have the possibility to not have their games rated. However, as the tournament is already running, this opting out should be informed through team captains to the league managers by Monday 28 September.
The earlier announcement of D Class rating has been withdrawn.
