Is my jump in rating unprecedented?

  • #21

    You are totally wrong.

    Rating jump 782 to 1075 is thousands of times more likely to happen than 2500 to 2793. 

    It is absolutely different strength increases. The higher the ratings, the harder to move and the higher the probability of you actually getting stuck at your current rating level.

     

    A lot of people get to 2k easily, but actually very few are able to move from 2500 to 2700. 

    Moving to 1k is what nearly everyone can do.

    Interesting point, agree to disagree I guess.

    Ummm, actually, your rating rise is nothing out of the ordinary.

    The difference between 800 and 1100 is the difference between a noob that throws pieces up in the air and a noob that is more consistent and no longer does that sort of thing.

    The difference between 2500 and 2700 is massive.

    I don't think that's fair to say, as the 1100 players will be the 800 player almost every time. Therefore, it may not take a lot of explanation to describe the difference between 800 and 1100, but it's definitely very large.

    Truly impressive. You have progressed from being a total moron to being a complete idiot quite rapidly. At this rate, you could be a fool before April.

    Thanks for your compliment. I'm hoping to become a functioning member of society by next year. This is a great boost in confidence for me. You see my lack of intelligence has always kept me out of the social scope. For this reason it's been tough to find work, or build meaningful relationship. Your observation and recognition on how my cognition has improved definitely gives me the will to keep fighting, and moving forward. Thank you for the kind words once again. People sometimes don't recognize how deeply and powerfully such beautiful words can empower others. >>>>



    I should wait, before you become too pleased. "Moron" and "idiot" were definite classifications of intellectual deficiency. Sadly for you, "idiot" was considerably stupider than "moron".

    My rating jump over the last year for blitz has one from 625 to 1400

    At it's peak

    @xman720: Yes, but that's often the reason the 1100s will beat the 800. Simply because 1100s are more consistent. Also, it takes very little to rise from 800 to 1100, but a regular 2500 that rises to 2700 suddenly would light up chess news all around the world.

    Take me for example. Back when I was a noob, my Rapid rating rose from 1150 to 1450 in a couple of months.

    President Max,  thanks for posting that Lionel Richie clip.   You should be promoted to King for that.

    It's good for you, but not that impressive, honestly. If you keep studying (I assume you are), you should he able to continue with your rise in rating for a while, but only to a point. You'll probably plateau somewhere around 1300-1500, then you'll have to either study much more or study different ideas. My first tournament made me UNR->1700s, but I had played online for a few years. Keep the work up and you'll continue to see progress.

    Congratulations on your biblically rapid progress Vlad. Makes Fischer's rise look pedestrian by comparison. Ignore the haters who say it's not unusual for lower rated players to see rapid increases in their rating.

    Progress is great but honestly not anything remarkable. The difference between those two ratings is very little. 782 is basically a chess dunce. That's someone who's just moving the pieces around without any real knowledge. You could read one book and go up 200 points from there. It could have just been a matter of not caring or focusing before, and making the decision to buckle down. I also don't know who your opponents were. There are a lot of factors. Just be proud of yourself.

     

    It's like a baby learning how to walk in a few weeks. It takes adults months or even years to relearn how to walk. So it's more impressive if you make that big of a jump in little time further on down the line. In the beginning it's pretty expected.

    if your jump is unprecedented then what would you call my jump then? i was at 700 in bullet in october 2016 and by 10th of january I had reached 1572 and betwen this period i played 16000 games of bullet! so a increase of approximately 900 points within 90 days!phpePw7fN.png

    Saurav, your progress is astonishing - but this thread is about Vlad and his accomplishments. 

  • #36

    Don't listen to them, Vladimir. You will probably be a Grandmaster by May.

    lol I went from the 600s to 1400s in a couple months. it's still probably the equivalent of a GM going from 2500 to 2501
