Rating Inflation?

  • 5 years ago · Quote · #1



    I'd like to think that my chess game has gotten better (chess mentor, correspondence chess, tournaments, blitz), yet it seems as if over the past month my rating has ballooned.  I use my rating more to show marked improvement versus bragging rights and am curious if the site redid the rating system?

    Looks more like a case of your RD being very high when you returned to play in October.

    Whoops, I meant my blitz play.  Not standard :D
