 We all know that the two score system are different and usually the gap should be around 300-400 points.


Why should it be 300 or 400 points?

I don't want to insist, but the overall rapid average keep decreasing everyday...


it was 776 when I open this thread just 6 days ago... on 26 M players is a CRAZY effect. It means that the main part of the players in is not able anymore to keep it own ranking.



Back when the site moved from a 1200 starting rating to the ability to choose a skill level, the vast majority of new members I checked were starting in the lower tiers. If enough if them are playing Rapid, and their chosen level was relatively accurate or too high, that can have an impact.
