Blitz Ratings?

  • 5 years ago · Quote · #1


    Is it just me, or are blitz ratings deflated here?

    I've seen a lot of people with 1300 blitz ratings and 1600+ online ratings.

    What do you think and why is this (not) the case?

    blitz is a fun game but it can hurt your normal game

    I think maybe a lot of people on here don't play that often on this particular website, so they end up being way better than presented. For instance, I play on chesscube.com all the time, and on the chess cup website, on Chesscube i'm 1790~ and on chess cup i'm 1810~ but on here, i'm 1300 =) lol I only play on here when i'm at work though.

    As pepePotato says, blitz can hurt your long game, but if you are recovering from a brain injury like a stroke, it can facilitate your recovery (if you can stand playing 700 chess for a while).  I lost about 40 IQ points and got a good chunk of it back blitzing.
