chess.com ratings are deflated against USCF

  • 3 months ago · Quote · #1101


    I only play slow chess here and I found the chess.com ratings of my opponents to be seriously deflated compared to the USCF ratings when I played tournaments in the 1970s.

    The recent point injection into chess.com standard ratings was a good move IMO.

    @Rrrtttyyyuuuiii How old are you? I know it's a weird question, but if you are young, you are probably underrated in U.S.C.F.

    Chess.com ratings are inflated. My blitz rating is over 1500 on chess.com, but my uscf rating is 1300

    I dont know uscf, but guess its close to fide.

    Blitzrating is very different from longchess. Its like comparing marathon with 100 meters. Usain Bolt might be the fastest man in the world, but he will be backmarker in marathonolympics.

    I am at 1200 blitz and 1428 fide longchess. Why not 1428 or even 1600-1700 blitz? Because I am better at long timecontrols and worse in blitz.

    So, if chess.com blitz is 200 above USCF, you probably does better in blitz than in longchess, or your USCF might not be updated to current strenght, because it reflects tournamentresults months ago.

    Ok, then your rating tells something about your strenght back then.

    Last time I played a rated game was on thursday, and this game will influence my rating soon, but not yet, and my fiderating is also reflecting games from the winter of 2014, when I was restarting chesscompeting far below my current strenght, maybe 200-500 points behind.

    Because of higher gamefrequensy, and more recent games, my blitz and online chess.com rating are more up to date than my fiderating. Its 1200 blitz and 1700 online, which tells that I need much time to think, to play well.
