In IACF we are using titles and categories to classify players by their strength.

The difference between category and title is only one: player may lose his category if his strength goes down. Titles are obtained forever, it's not possible to lose a title even if you waste your strength.

To obtain a category or title, you have to reach the necessary number of IACF rating points. The necessary ratings for each category and title are described below.
