Yay, we got a Ubuntu user! grin.png I use Ubuntu MATE 16.04. Does that happen to be Ubuntu 18.04 LTS? (I haven't kept up with Linux distros lately).

OSes aside, that seems like a massive rating difference! Does the rating difference mean less and less as Elo increases, or does it matter more?

the test isn’t accurate. I got 2132. 

your old account's rating  (accordng to your profile) was around 2000 tho. but, yeah, the test isn't that realistic (i'm a 1500 OTB and i scored 2040)

yes, but I was 2000, not 2132. my highest is like 2026 or something

Your ELO rating is based on your chess results, not on some inane quiz.

You want to find your "elo" from a stupid quiz? Seriously??? That's ultra low-level....

Go play in FIDE tournaments and you get an ELO... and guess what, THAT'S your ELO!!! No other stupid conversions from a stupid quiz.

In real-life (otb) ratings the difference elo matter more and more. But I'm going to assume on the elo test the higher your rating is the more likely you just score whatever the max is or close to it. So, I think probably (I don't really know) the higher your otb rating is the less it matters what your score is on the test. But really that's just an assumption.

And yes, that is Ubuntu 18.04 LTS happy.png

1605.

I did take a minute or two on every example, so I guess it doesn't really reflect my (lack of) blitz skill.

On that subject - does FIDE recognize rating based on results from national league competitions, or only from international tournaments?

How high rated must you be to find yourself on an official FIDE rating list with a rating, or is there a different requirement?

It would be nice if there were some kind of test to actually measure your elo. I would agree that the tests here aren't very good I don't really see how this comment adds to the discussion.

Of course the only definitive way to know what your elo is would be to get one. Why on earth would anyone have to qualify that?

This test is super old and the OP is a troll.

IIRC there is no correct answer to #9, plus on #9 the engine's top choice doesn't increase your rating as much as lesser moves.

Also there's always the problem of guessing a move that looks like a tactic or a puzzle move without actually knowing if it's correct. IIRC on some of the puzzles a random sacrifice will at least win you some points, even if it's a bad move.

I scored 1800 on this thing way back when I was maybe 1400 OTB.

Yeah, I agree with all of that (lol because I already said it) but yeah, I'm more interested in the elometer test.

On the other one I got I think 2200 or 2300 when I was 1900 (not so long ago).

But again, sometimes you recognize an opening or position or guess a move so... I don't know...

I always say there's an even better more amazing test to give you an Elo estimate!

The more tools that are out there the better. I could say https://www.chess.com/tactics or https://www.chess.com/puzzles

No no chess.com tactics are the least accurate tactic rating system on any chess website.... in that case an NM is 14,000 rated in tactics...

Rishik123

my estimated rating is 1420.quite accurate

You've missed the point entirely.
