I there a way I can have my rating manually lowered?
like to zero?
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?
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 !!
what was elo's first name agian?
actually someone did get zero, i don't remember who
try to remember ur unrated opponent u fought and ur unconditional surrender resulting a zero achievement !!
What would the difference be between a chess.com rating and a fide rating ???
I know its OTb I play in lots of OTB chess tornements but I'm wondering what would a Fide rating be in chess.com.My question being If I had a 2000 chess.com rating what would thatt be in fide what is the point difference,is a fide rating 100 points haead of your chess.com rating or is a 200 behind ect!
so yuor saying a 2000 chess.com rating is equivilant to a 1700 feid rating ?
It's more like a 1700 FIDE rating is a 2000 chess.com turn-based rating.
Live chess is a bit closer I think, but I don't play here much either, and some of the ratings have changed.
The most interesting game of chess was played here in chess.com !!!!
