Chronicles of Oware Players on playok and their rankings week beginning 20th September 2nd edition

Updated: Oct 5, 2020

Over the past week in the Chronicles of Oware players the top five positions more-or-less stayed the same with only once change. Out of the top 50 or saw players known to us only 36 played a game in the week. Only two of the top three players put in an appearance, although they played the positions did not change with dosast gaining more ranking points 2131 in third position. A top five player who did put in an appearance was masterfisz who played a lot of games and won the majority but lost some few key games to lower ranked players and was thus relegated to 10th position.

In preparation for the All Female Online Oware Championship the female players especially where practicing frenetically to sharpen their skills and chances of winning the championship. Players of note who were most visible where alim0504, radka183 and big30.

Three newcomers: mababyao, benndele and euwe18 burst onto the scene and rampaged through the ranks taking no prisoners. The most successful player mbabayayo who started playing on the 11th of September and has rampaged through the ranking list, casting most contenders aside, stormed into joint 5th position with 1892 points, until dsk stopped him/her in his/her tracks. His or her rise has been truly meteoric, having only played 18 players with a win rate of 73.7%. Other new-comers to the platform are lordsoso, whose performance has been more tortuous but he/she has persevered and is rising slowly up the ranks.

Other names to look out for are big30 who for the first time gained her yellow status (ranking points above 1500), gbagbo, szczor1 & salascv have also gained points and are rising up the ranks.

Marathon matches of note that came to our attention where between alim0504 and mbabyayo where the score stands to date 18-6 to mbabyayo and one draw. Another marathon match was between harrison01 and lordsoso who battled it out on 23rd September with the score standing at 10-7 to harrison01.

Focus on mbabyayo (by Glenda Trew)

A new player who has burst onto the scene is mbabayayo (aka the magician), this player came to the board less than a week ago with 1200 points but soon mastered above every level player he /she came across. On playing he /she astounded me with their precise and accurate moves so by the end of the week he she reached a level 1800 points. mbabayayo thwarted almost every move of their opponent. Little is known of this player and only leaves board after winning of at least ten games straight, after the penultimate game he announces ‘last’. High level players have tackled mbabayayo at all moves imaginable, mb seems to magically move out of the way and captures seeds unannounced!

Most of mbabyayo’s opponents just ‘resign’ after several moves, some players becoming giddy and hooked on winning just falter and loose badly. At the moment from my observations mb is the mysterious magician in the online Oware game. Mysteriously came and now gone yet to reappear. I look eagerly for his / her the return.
