  • #21

    When I started out online, I was about 1300-1400 range, and the 1700s I occasionally faced seemed like chess gods.  When I finally got my rating to 1700, it was one of the greatest feelings, and I really felt like I made it.

    Fast forward a decade or so and with an online rating of 2000, I now realize that 1700 is nothing outstanding and many of my games from this period are more amusing than anything.  My rating has flirted with 2100 at times, but my happiness and excitement is nothing like it was when I first crested 1700.

    Enjoy your moment, congratulate yourself, but recognize that you are very far from done.  Congrats all the same.

    0 respect to both 1700 and your goal of 2000.They all play lousy moves and hang pieces as beginners, though the frequency is decreasing from frequently to less frequently. ( myself is being 2000 though). And I have 'zero OTB rating' though being 2000+ in here.

    The only legitimate rating is an OTB rating.  Unless youre an established titled player, then that online rating has some merit.

    Congratulations on 1700!  It says something significant about your ability to see patterns, tactics, and combinations and deserves much respect!

    Lol, You are noob. Let me tell you something. If 10 people create 10 accounts  and play some blitz games from initial 1200 rating, one guy will get 2000. At the same time another 50 people open addition 50 account for daily chess, forum etc and their all accounts will be counted as 1200 blitz even if they dont play. And later there would be another 40 inactive accounts, closed accounts,  etc.
     

     

    This is the most ridiculous thing I ever heard. If 10 people create 10 accounts, 1 person wont just stumble to a 2000 rating. A 2000 rating is something players can go years without actually ever reaching. You wont reach a 2000 rating unless you play like a 2000 rating, plain and simple.

    Ok , this is my last blitz game in my record that I played in last year. My opponent was 2100+ and it was 10 mins blitz. Can you count how many pieces my opponent dropped in a game? Should I respect him? 

  • #28

    Let me start over:

     

    congratulations on breaking 1700!

     

    I hope you take this as a sign that you are ready to play some official OTB rated games.

     

    There are many problems with online ratings. One example of this is my own blitz rating. I didn't play any tournaments for a while and broke 2200 in blitz. I have since played almost exclusively in tournament and I have trouble breaking 2000 in blitz.  I think I'm actually playing a bit better with the lower rating.

     

    I hope you enjoy your blitz rating, but the only rating that matters in the real world are national (USCF) and international (FIDE) over-the-board ratings.

     

    maybe now that you've reached a virtual milestone, you will take the opportunity to play some official OTB events!

    Blitz is not real chess. It’s just a race.

    Pretty sure I could show you blitz games I've played along side tournament games and you wouldn't be able to tell the difference. For example fully formed strategic plans can be executed if you can recognize them quickly enough, and have experience playing them.

    But yeah, blitz is a different kind of animal. Especially at the end, your ability to speed up and recognize simple threats nearly instantly is crucial. This skill alone can separate two otherwise equal players by 100s of points in their blitz ratings.

         Blitz is not real chess. When I was B-class I won a blitz tournament with several NMs. I couldn't beat any of them in a real game. One month later I was 4th in a tournament with average rating 1700.

          I also know a B-class player that has drawn and won IMs and FMs many times in blitz but has trouble winning C-class players in tournaments.

          Classical chess , and blitz are 2 entirely different games. Being good in blitz means nothing , being good in classical chess is what really matters. The greatest proof is that no one gets a title norm in blitz tournaments.

    "In blitz all that matters is to create positions in which you can play fast. It's not real chess"

      @Powerfulgod, Hehe, Feel like my troll was successful. Yeah, I trolled cos I saw the comment of troller @Myratingis1523. And then some people get serious about this thread. @polebuster. Congratulation! You are starting to get advance from the pack ( average amateurs) but like a lot of other said, it is still far to be respected ( hat-trick or something), and my personal opinion on 1700 blitz would be just barely on the top 1 in 3 groups.  ( 1 bad group, 1 medium group, 1 good group)

    Respect is not measured by rating but congrats on reaching your milestone.

  • #37

    If you meet a milestone, then feel good about it!

    I don't really know what you mean by respect though, if we are being honest. 

    You don't "deserve" respect for having any particular rating. I beat a 2400+ blitz player 2 games in a row and he responded by calling me a series of nasty names and being an overall bad sport- he has a pretty rating but deserves 0 respect.

    Be polite, be a benefit to the chess.com community, and you'll get respect.

    We all come to chess.com to play casual games, it doesn't matter if you are 1200, 1700, or 2200, and your chess.com rating isn't going to get you any brownie points in the chess world at large.

    But stay proud of your accomplishments, if 1700 is a landmark for you, I am glad you got it!

    Well said! Chess isn't just logical, it's also psychological. Respect others regardless of rating. Self respect is also important. It's applicable to sport in general, whatever you do in games, have no regrets. If you did your best, you can't feel too disappointed. Learn from your losses, enjoy your wins. Sport psychology can be good to look into, but be wary of low quality material, and you'll find a lot of experienced wisdom. There are so many levels of ability, but 1700 sounds pretty good to me. It depends what you want out of chess versus realistic goals. I love the irony of disrespectful players getting crushed by supposedly 'lower' rated opposition. happy.png
