These ranks are only meant to be used within Go Magic, there can’t be a direct correlation between Go Magic ranks and kyu and dan strength on a given server or in a given country. However all the Go problems in the courses or in the Skill Tree will be labeled with these ranks and the table above will be used to estimate each problem’s difficulty level. The kyu and dan levels that will be used as measurement criteria, are based on the ones from OGS and KGS.

Experience Points Ranking system

Experience points are received after completing lessons and solving problems. Once a sufficient amount is earned, the account will be upgraded to the next rank.

Coins Ranking system

The coins are awarded for solving problems on the first try only and can be later used to unlock premium content.

Course Crystals Ranking system

The crystals are visual indicators of your course results.

Solving a task perfectly — 2 crystals
One mistake — 1 crystal
More mistakes — 0 crystals

The total amount of crystals is then converted into the grade that is shown after completing a quiz or a course. Crystals are reset for every new course that you take.

Go Magic Leaders and Their Rewards

On the leaders page you will find the top ranking students of our platform: for one day, week and month. At the end of each one of these periods the most hard-working students get rewarded accordingly.

For a day: 1–5 coins. For a week: 5–30 coins. For a month: 5–100 coins.

The coins you earn also affect the ranking. Every coin adds 100 extra points to the overall number of XP.

Please note that you only receive XP and Coins for solving problems of your level or higher. Solving problems one level below yours will cut the XP you receive in half. Solving problems two levels lower will not be rewarded with XP at all. Coins are only received when solving problems the first time.
