is chess.com rating equal to fide rating

  • #1
    hi I have 1650+ chess.com rating in biltz and rapid game if I play in FIDE tournament , can I achieve it
  • #2

    it's best to take your chess.com rating with a grain of salt. there are many factors that can unfairly increase or decrease your rating. i know that i'm not as good as my rating says.

    Your rating is a reflection of you relative strength within that group of people - the people who play in FIDE rated events are very different from the people who play here on Chess.com, so the two ratings can be very different.

    Most FIDE events also use longer time controls rather than blitz or rapid.

    I think chess.com is 100-200 points behind USCF and CFC ratings and 300 or more points below Fide. This doesn't seem true 100% of the time but with lower ratings

    Sorry but that is not true. Just one example: https://www.chess.com/member/leonskennedy992

    USCF>=blitz>rapid

    In my case: Fide>blitz>rapid.

    The answer is it depends. Depends on the specific live rating pool, depends on what level you're trying to compare since the scale is not linear, depends how many games you have played. There's a lot of factors in play so any answer you get can be several hundred points off the mark.

     

    In general, online ratings are inflated compared to OTB ratings. 

     

    You can take a look here to get a very rough idea how the different pools correlate at different points. Just keep in mind that the data is not good enough to be conclusive. Don't take it as proof.

    Blunder, this is just my observation when people list their fide ratings on the website. I have never seen anyone's fide rating be higher than their chess.com rating. Perhaps I am wrong though

    No.

    I think its difficult for a 1650 blitz in the beginning to match a 1650 Fide-longchess in a longchessgame, because the quality of play given that much time is much higher, but when you adapt to the otb-longchess time control and environment you may feel that the 1650 Fides are very close to your strength. Most difficult is it to not move too fast in any moves.

     

    In my case its Daily >Rapid>Blitz>Fide>Bullet.  The Fide-rating is updating very slowly and lags several months behind the current strength.

    I play in an auto-pairing one-minute pool on another server, where IMs and GMs often do not even break 2000. 

    The pool is an absolute shark tank. 

    Why do you keep mentioning that?

    According to your data lichess ratings are inflated. Otherwise the data is not very conclusive. For instance rapid is inflated at the lower end and deflated at the upper end. Bullet seems to be the other way round.

    I think the Daily chess rating in chess.com is more compact than many other ratings. I am at mediocre strength and is only 900 points behind the best (toprated is at GM David Klein at 2593, he is fiderated at 2491), and 500 behind some GMs. In Fide lonchess I am 1450 points behind Magnus, In chess.com blitz I am 1600 behind Magnus. One reason the Daily has lower rating top is that the super-GMs doesn't play much serious daily chess here. There  was a player that dominated so hard last autumn that he could have been Karjakin. He won every game except for eight draws, and suddenly lost all games on timeout one weak before the Carlsen -Karjakinmatch.  

    Anyway, dailyratingscale is compact. Players that are 200 points above me probably  are 400 above me in fiderating.

    hi thanks everyone

        The ratings might be accurate for those that have played OTB but they are not accurate for those that haven't played.

        In real chess , you are not in the comfort of your house and every defeat(esepcially the bad ones) has a significant psychological impact which you have to overcome in just a few hours.Exhaustion is also a parameter.An inexperienced player will most probably need a week rest after a long difficult game and he won't have it.A player with a 1650 on line rating might hover around 1200-1400 for many months before he is able to finally reach his on line rating.

    There are qualities, not directly related to chess, that a chessplayer develops by time and they are necessary for consistent performance(especially mental stamina and emotion control).

    Real chess and on line chess are 2 very different games for those that have never play OTB.

    The experienced OTB players have no such problem of course.

    Since average chess.com player is very weak ratings start lose meanin here after 1600-1700. Just too few games to keep stats in order

    "OTB" = "Over The Board" i.e. a game played in real life using a physical chess board and chess pieces

    OTB stands for over the board. which is basically playing chess on an actual chessboard.
