ICC Help: assess

Command:  assess
Usage:  assess [<player1>] [<player2>]
Example:  "assess Hawkeye Smallville"

Assess shows you the rating changes that will occur if you win, lose or draw against another player. Just type "assess player-name". To see the rating changes between two other players, type "assess player1 player2". To see the rating changes in a game you are currently playing, just type "assess". Assess also lists the current rating of each player, in each of the rating categories.

For example, "assess Hawkeye Smallville" might give:

                      Hawkeye                    Smallville      
               ----------------------      ----------------------
               Win  Draw  Loss Rating      Win  Draw  Loss Rating
  Wild          +3    +0    -3   2485      +84    +4   -76   2448
  Loser's     +363  +243  +123   1400     -117  -237  -357   2200
  Bughouse      +1    +0    -1   2198     +199    -1  -201   2200
  Crazyhouse    +5    -9   -23   2183      +35   +14    -7   1904
  Bullet       +13    -3   -19   2756      +19    +3   -13   2681
  Blitz        +11    -5   -21   3292      +21    +5   -11   3183
  Standard     +21    +5   -11   2581      +11    -5   -21   2704
  5-minute     +13    -3   -19   2643      +19    +3   -13   2571
  1-minute     +18    +2   -14   2699      +14    -2   -18   2752

In this example, if Hawkeye beats Smallville in Bullet, his rating should go up 13 points. (Smallville has not played Bughouse, and neither of them have played Loser's, which is why the assessments in those categories are so high.)
