A summary of things that involve both me and Riichi Mahjong, including my club, my apps, the games I played, etc.

Club

I am the founder and president of Longhorn Riichi. I am also one of the primary contributors to the tech stack of the club (website, bots, etc.).

Apps

  • Ronhorn. Longhorn Riichi’s main server Discord bot, including commands for club operations and commands for online Riichi game utilities. The latter largely depend on the InjusticeJudge module.
  • UvUManager. the Discord bot for Longhorn Riichi’s special tournament UTA vs UTD, including commands specific to managing the tournament.

Games

  • Mahjong Soul. My stats. Fun fact: I dropped from Master 3 3379/3600 to Master 1 ~1000/2800 in a long stretched unlucky streak; it made me question whether I deserved to be so close to Saint before.
  • Tenhou. My stats. Started playing more after joining ARML; my highest rank is 3 Dan, around 900/1200 with 1825 R.

I also played Riichi City, Sega MJ, Yakuza games’ mahjong etc. but so far I’ve only really seriously played Mahjong Soul and Tenhou.

Miscellaneous

Tournaments

I also played in the IORMC’s 2022 USA qualifier and ended up as 21/24 – didn’t qualify.
