Play with KGS players from OGS. API and operationnal code available!

As you probably know, KGS is now available with a webpage https://shin.gokgs.com/33 and can be seen as a prooof of concept that it could be possible to log/search/join and play game on it via OGS ( with some kind of Adapter design pattern to communicate with the server).

Everything is documented to help people to create their own client.

I know it could be a lot of work , but it could definitvely make KGS players to come here, and will greatly improve the users community..

A single login for the two servers, and lots of new players and games to join.

        I think differences of ranking come from the difference of strenght distribution amoung the players population. As you know the elo and kyu-dan ranking follows a normal distribution, but if then mean population rank is is better than one all "labels" are sliding. Mixing popluation by playing each other will erase the differences asymptotically.

        What is the rank difference between the 2 servers? I've heard that an OGS 14kyu is approximately KGS 10kyu. So that might be an issue if trying to play a ranked game between 2 people

        I think as game will be counted for the two servers simullatneously, the rank will tend to be similar with lots of games .. but we cant be sure untill tried

        Of course the whole rank thing would have to be worked out. Maybe users could have a KGS and OGS rank separately.
