Chronicles of players on the playok platform for the week beginning 21st December 2020 15th edition


Last week saw the return of marathon matches, with the holidays looming players had more time to engage with each other in mental combat. There was one change in the top five with masterfisz continuing his yoyo affair with the top five, replacing salgerd in 5th place. dsk still reigns supreme with 2117 points, after losing some games to wkc1342, who has been on a mission to crack dsk. The top 50 continues to remain resilient with only a few players moving in and out.


Highlights: The highlight of the week was the Ugandan Online Oware Championship which is discussed below in a section dedicated to it. A match of particular interest that took place on Monday between lewykapy and lordsoso demonstrated the extent to which players go to defeat their opponents and thus gain more ranking points. Not the first time lewykapy baited lordsoso with 1-minute games mid match, but what was a delight to watch lordsoso rising to the challenge ending up in a 2 -2 draw.


Risers: last week saw major movements by a few players in or into the top 50. In the main the previous week trend continued with most players moving a few places up for down from the previous week’s positions. The largest riser was tchayna who move a whooping 25 positions to 24th place. lawhkx 2nd largest riser moved 25th places to 32nd position into the top 50. zingman moved 18 places to the 20th position. gouglouf rose 14 places into the top 50 by wining some games against to ranked players. kostyan2 continued his rise up the ranking table, rising 12 places to 34th position. panfile and kamilrybnik both rose 6 places to 11th and 18th position respectively.


Fallers: In the top 50 only two players fell by substantive amounts: monkftw and harrison01. monkftw fell 9 places to the 40th position. harrison01 fell 26 places to the 48th position.

Please note these rankings serve only as a guide to players activities & standings on the playok platform. It is by no means a completely accurate or exhaustive list, as it is not possible to know all the oware players on the platform. Some players may choose to at times or always play unranked games, thus making this ranking an approximation of players strengths. Players are only added once they become known to us and we begin to monitor their progress.


Also note these rankings only reflect what we were aware of as of day end Sunday 27th December 2020. Rankings will certainly have changed for players who have played since then. Players who played during the past week have their alias in bold. Feel free to give us feed-back for this round up and do not forget to like or leave a comment.
