ICC News Item #1364
Chessclub.com has added a crazyhouse rating, separate from the bughouse rating. This was one of the most popular suggestions from ICC members. The crazyhouse ratings will be started from scratch. Your bughouse (wild 24) rating will remain the same, but will no longer be affected by crazyhouse (wild 23) games. Crazyhouse ratings will show in the "finger" command as soon as you play a rated crazyhouse game, which you can do by typing "seek w23". "z" is the flag for crazyhouse in the who and games command. For example, "games *z" will list all the crazyhouse games currently being played. "who z" will list people by their crazyhouse rating. By the way, there is also a similar flag "L" for Losers chess now. "best w" and "wildrank" now have columns for crazyhouse. Crazyhouse is a game in which you can use the pieces you have captured as your own pieces, by placing them on the board. help crazyhouse has all the details.
