Best moves is key to win.
Computer analysis most often gives my games 30+% of inaccuracies, mistakes and blunders, and yet I am rated in the top 2% (turn-based). Players rated 2200+ still make their share of mistakes. When I am stuck for a good move, I try to avoid making a really bad move. Making the "best moves" constantly is a pipe dream.
My humble goal within 3 years is to reach 1500 Elo. I don't think I will beat many players. Is it still possible to get a reasonably accurate rating?
I assume you mean over the board chess. You'd need to play a large number of games (maybe 50) against a variety of opponents to achieve a reasonably accurate rating, IMHO. According to my turn-based Glicko RD = 61, meaning there is a good degree of confidence that my playing strength is + or - 122 points, (between 1892 and 2136) and I've played about 300 games.
I will be prepared to play dozens and dozens of games. ;) Thanks.
for that we wish u get thru success!!
2 get ur ratin up highr wud it b wisr 2 ply higr rated plyrs r lowr rated plyers
sorry about hat I was in a rush what I meant to say was
Too get your rating up higher would it be wuser to play higher rated oppenenents or lower rated oppnenents?
I there a way I can have my rating manually lowered?
like to zero?
Seriously, it is better to play lower rated players. However if you are really underrated then maybe the higher rated opponents would get your rating up sooner.
Begs the question...Why would you want to? If you feel you are overrated, your rating will come down soon enough. Sandbagging is the tried and proven method for lowering your rating. Although I don't know how low it is possible to go, probably about 500 or so.
Is there a way for the moderators to manually lower my rating?
I deserv to be around zero.....can it be made so?
U go thru Erik's formula at the begining!!
There are only 40 players below 550. The lowest rated member is above 250. I'd guess most of these members are inactive. Even if you could arrange to play these guys and managed to lose every game (they could be quicker on the resign button or just plain time out) you'd still couldn't reach a zero rating.
U got an wonderful theme point!!
what point was that?
:( don't be hatin' on 250 raters!
Irrawang 's point was in his proposition !!
