It is short for mathematics and also correct English. Think of physics not physic. Math is more of an Americanism.
True, "maths" is correct English. "Math" is correct in America.
Actually, "physic" is a word, although rarely used. "Physic" denotes a medicine, typically a cathartic. Of course, "physic" is entirely distinct from the science of "physics."
i am 1100 hundred otb 1540 chess.com does that makeouts something like that uscf average is lower that the international average(sorry mod but why do you only block comments about your nationality i have never seen you block commments like indians stink etc etc .though back to the topic maybe that is because of india has tougher competion and population.
Yep, well said.
Seems like the blitz ratings are even getting more deflated. I think they injected points into the standard ratings, but never injected points into the blitz ratings, did they? I think your rating should reflect your relative strength to other chess players. It should be on this scale of 600-3000. It should have this meaning that 600-1000 is a beginner, 1000-1400 is an intermediate, a 1400-1800 is an advanced intermediate, 1800-2200 is getting into expert, and 2200 + is world class. If the ratings don't reflect that, then I think the rating scale has failed. It no longer reflects what meaning we attribute to it. If a 1250 blitz player can beat 90%+ of all human chess players in 10 minute chess, then that rating is too low.
Or you can think that rating delivers what it promises: Ability to find an opponent of similar strength. Relative measures are always just relative as trying to keep them in sync with each other is useless ans will require constantresyncs
Yeah but they are still deflated in comparison to USCF. That much is certain.
You are1192 Fide, and thats another scale than Uscf.
Comparing your chess.com ratings you probably are close to me in strenght, which is 1435 Fide. When Norwegian players plays abroad, I think we are getting cheap ratingpoints in Denmark and Sweden, and it looks like India is much tougher. Are there many kids coming up in India? When the kids are coming, the ratingpoints gets more difficult to catch, because they are coming from below and are bringing less points to the board than they are taking home.
Norway has more kids coming up than Sweden and Denmark, because of the Magnus-popularity. Therefore we are underated compared to them.
India and China are FIDE rating black holes.
