You have played more than 7 thousand games, and your bullet and standard ratings appear lower than you blitz and online ratings.
You have an (unbalanced) "dumbbell shaped" distribution to your various ratings. Maybe your reflexes are simply slowing down. It happens after about 35 years old.
But it seems odd that your standard rating would be lower than your blitz rating. Perhaps you haven't played enough standard rated games to even out your rating there. Probably just playing more Game in 10/10 or Game in 15/5, will rectify that.
IMO, Bullet makes you go blind, and frays your nerves. Why worry about it?
what the hell are you talking about? if you noticed while you were looking at the stats, I haven't played many so-called "standard games" (those should be termed rapid instead), thus the rating is not very high. if I played more I'm sure it would be between 1700-2000. also the majority of the blitz games were against the computer not people, I gained maybe a point or 2 for every win or loss, the rating stayed relatively constant even though I played thousands of 5 minute games against the computer programs.
"(unbalanced) "dumbbell (sp?) shaped" distribution to your various ratings"
what are you talking about? this is a ridiculous statement that has no relevance to anything.
reflexes? are you kidding me? what you trying to make pointing and clicking the mouse really fast sound as impressive as possible? no this isn't the case. it's just that it's a essentially a video game, street fighter with chess pieces, and I am horrible at video games, always have been, my entire life, age has no relevance. I sucked at mortal kombat when was 15 and I'm sure I still suck at it.
and whose worried?
Well, you're intitled to your opinion. It's funny to me though you think titled players are do it well because they've memorized patters. 2000 rated players have memorized many patterns too. Not as many as a professional, but not as few at a 1500, see what I mean :)
no, actually I really don't understand what you are talking about here or trying to get at, or what it has to do with anything I wrote. if a player is rated 2000 fide or uscf, they are on the cusp of being a titled player, and obviously have rapid chess pattern recognition. I group such persons in the same category as professionals and titled players. in my opinion there are two pools of players here which can't really be compared in terms of these things, chess enthusiasts/amateurs (vast majority of people) and active professional players with ratings 2000 and above.
Bullet and time goes hand in hand...Are you materialistic? Do you occassionally win a queen or a piece for that matter in the first few moves and ended up losing? It's all time. Buy a good mouse and prepare premoves.
do people actually "prepare premoves?" lol. jesus. what is this crazy bullet land?
Which is my point, it's a false dichotomy. Chess skill is a continuum not an either or.
The bold text contains simple factual statements about you 4 ratings. Do you have a problem with understanding English?
An "unbalanced barbell" distribution to your 4 ratings is exactly what I said it was. Look and your 4 ratings. Your Bullet is lower than your blitz, and your standard is lower than your online. Q.E.D.
It's a small jump to conclude you reflexes might be slowing down. Hardlly an earth shattering conclusion.
But why so combative? You asked for feedback. Yet you insist on "refuting" me (and everyone else) who doesn't agree with you.
Looking closer at the OP's record. What's now clear is that he is playing opponents way too lower rated. Roughly 300 points below him on average.
Yes, he's not very good at bullet speed. Clearly that pisses him off. Hence his railings, and overuse of the video game metaphor.
The OP may simply have a slow internet connection, which might account for his problems at faster speeds. Or he might be over 40 years old, which could mean his bullet reflexes have slowed a bit.
Either way, given the tone of his replies above, he just ain't listening.
Play blitz and not bullet. You're probably not used to moving that fast. I'm still not used to it.
