My rating on chess. I think numbers are inflated here just because of the fact it is the internet and there will always be ways to cheat using computers or help from friends ect.
But, in my head, if you play completely legit, like we all should and do, and you can keep up with other high level players and cheaters, ect, then I dont see this rating system being too different then others, especially at higher levels.
My online rating ils a little better than my real rating on chess. For most of us, the "Holy Grail" is But here in Chess. So what freeking chance do I have?
Look, it's not that hard. You could easily pump up folks ratings by making a minor change to the program that calculates ratings.
We care. We want to be obtainable. Why do you think we play chess? I agree with howler that the ratings are very poor on chess. He was a solid chess player himself, as you can see from this game he played against a young Bobby Fischer.
The Elo rating system was officially adopted by the U. Many chess organizations and websites also use this system to rate players.
On Chess. He reached an impressive classical rating of in As of June , Carlsen is the highest-rated player for classical and rapid time controls and second in blitz behind GM Hikaru Nakamura.
Each player's Elo rating is represented by a number that reflects that person's results in previous rated games. After each rated game, their ratings are adjusted according to the outcome of the encounter.
While people usually think of the Elo rating system as a way of measuring a player's absolute strength, you should note that this is not the case.
This system calculates the probable outcome of a person's games against other players. Calculating the probable outcome of chess games is one of the fascinating aspects of this rating system: it takes into consideration the fluctuations in a player's performance.
See also Comparison of top chess players throughout history. It is commonly believed that, at least at the top level, modern ratings are inflated.
For instance Nigel Short said in September , "The recent ChessBase article on rating inflation by Jeff Sonas would suggest that my rating in the late s would be approximately equivalent to in today's much debauched currency".
By when he made this comment, would only have ranked him 65th, while would have ranked him equal 10th. It has been suggested that an overall increase in ratings reflects greater skill.
The advent of strong chess computers allows a somewhat objective evaluation of the absolute playing skill of past chess masters, based on their recorded games, but this is also a measure of how computerlike the players' moves are, not merely a measure of how strongly they have played.
The number of people with ratings over has increased. Around there was only one active player Anatoly Karpov with a rating this high. In Viswanathan Anand was only the 8th player in chess history to reach the mark at that point of time.
The current benchmark for elite players lies beyond One possible cause for this inflation was the rating floor, which for a long time was at , and if a player dropped below this they were stricken from the rating list.
As a consequence, players at a skill level just below the floor would only be on the rating list if they were overrated, and this would cause them to feed points into the rating pool.
By July it had increased to In a pure Elo system, each game ends in an equal transaction of rating points. If the winner gains N rating points, the loser will drop by N rating points.
This prevents points from entering or leaving the system when games are played and rated. However, players tend to enter the system as novices with a low rating and retire from the system as experienced players with a high rating.
Therefore, in the long run a system with strictly equal transactions tends to result in rating deflation. In , the USCF acknowledged that several young scholastic players were improving faster than the rating system was able to track.
As a result, established players with stable ratings started to lose rating points to the young and underrated players. Several of the older established players were frustrated over what they considered an unfair rating decline, and some even quit chess over it.
Because of the significant difference in timing of when inflation and deflation occur, and in order to combat deflation, most implementations of Elo ratings have a mechanism for injecting points into the system in order to maintain relative ratings over time.
FIDE has two inflationary mechanisms. First, performances below a "ratings floor" are not tracked, so a player with true skill below the floor can only be unrated or overrated, never correctly rated.
Second, established and higher-rated players have a lower K-factor. Rating floors in the United States work by guaranteeing that a player will never drop below a certain limit.
This also combats deflation, but the chairman of the USCF Ratings Committee has been critical of this method because it does not feed the extra points to the improving players.
A possible motive for these rating floors is to combat sandbagging, i. Human—computer chess matches between Deep Blue versus Garry Kasparov and demonstrated that chess computers are capable of defeating even the strongest human players.
However, chess engine ratings are difficult to quantify, due to variable factors such as the time control and the hardware the program runs on.
Published engine rating lists such as CCRL are based on engine-only games on standard hardware configurations and are not directly comparable to FIDE ratings.

In other sports, individuals maintain rankings based on the Elo algorithm. These are usually unofficial, not endorsed by the sport's governing body.
The World Football Elo Ratings is an example of the method applied to men's football. It is the official rating system of major organizations such as the Intercollegiate Tennis Association and World TeamTennis and is frequently used in segments on the Tennis Channel.
The algorithm analyzes more than 8 million match results from over , tennis players worldwide. On May 8, , Rafael Nadal — having won 46 consecutive sets in clay court matches — had a near-perfect clay UTR of One of the few Elo-based rankings endorsed by a sport's governing body is the FIFA Women's World Rankings , based on a simplified version of the Elo algorithm, which FIFA uses as its official ranking system for national teams in women's football.
In , Nate Silver, editor-in-chief of the statistical commentary website FiveThirtyEight , and Reuben Fischer-Baum produced Elo ratings for every National Basketball Association team and season through the season.
An Elo-based ranking of National Hockey League players has been developed. National Scrabble organizations compute normally distributed Elo ratings except in the United Kingdom , where a different system is used.

New players are assigned a rating of , with the best humans and bots rating over VogClub sets a new player's rating at Despite questions of the appropriateness of using the Elo system to rate games in which luck is a factor, trading-card game manufacturers often use Elo ratings for their organized play efforts.
However, the DCI abandoned this system in in favour of a new cumulative system of "Planeswalker Points", chiefly because of the above-noted concern that Elo encourages highly rated players to avoid playing to "protect their rating".
Similarly, Decipher, Inc. The Esports game Overwatch , the basis of the unique Overwatch League professional sports organization , uses a derivative of the Elo system to rank competitive players with various adjustments made between competitive seasons.

The Elo rating system has also been used in biology for assessing male dominance hierarchies,  and in automation and computer vision for fabric inspection.
Moreover, online judge sites are also using Elo rating system or its derivatives. They found that this did not accurately represent the actual results achieved by particularly the lower rated players.
Instead they switched to a logistical distribution model, which seemed to provide a better fit for the actual results achieved.
The second major concern is the correct "K-factor" used. If the K-factor coefficient is set too large, there will be too much sensitivity to winning, losing or drawing, in terms of the large number of points exchanged.
Too low a K-value, and the sensitivity will be minimal, and it would be hard to achieve a significant number of points for winning, etc.
Elo's original K-factor estimation, was based without the benefit of huge databases and statistical evidence. Sonas indicates that a K-factor of 24 for players rated above may be more accurate both as a predictive tool of future performance, and also more sensitive to performance.
Certain Internet chess sites seem to avoid a three-level K-factor staggering based on rating range.
The USCF which makes use of a logistic distribution as opposed to a normal distribution have staggered the K-factor according to three main rating ranges of:.
In over-the-board chess, the staggering of K-factor is important to ensure minimal inflation at the top end of the rating spectrum.
In theory, it would make it harder for players to get the much higher ratings, if their K-factor sensitivity was lessened from 32 to 16 for example, when they get over rating.
This would seem to hold true, for example, if one analysed the games of a GM on the ICC: one can find a string of games of opponents who are all over A category 10 FIDE event would mean players are restricted in rating between to However, if the player entered normal Swiss-paired open over-the-board chess tournaments, he would likely meet many opponents less than FIDE on a regular basis.
The K-factor would arguably only slow down the increases that the player achieves after each win. The evidence given in the ICC K-factor article relates to the auto-pairing system, where the maximum ratings achieved are seen to be only about In other sports, individuals maintain rankings based on the Elo algorithm.
These are usually unofficial, not endorsed by the sport's governing body. The World Football Elo Ratings rank national teams in football soccer.
Jeff Sagarin publishes team rankings for American college football and basketball, with "Elo chess" being one of the two rankings he presents.
Based on this adaptation, Baseball Prospectus also makes Elo-based Monte Carlo simulations of the odds of whether teams will make the playoffs.
In the strategy game Tantrix an Elo-rating scored in a tournament changes the overall rating according to the ratio of the games played in the tournament and the overall game count.
Every year passed, ratings are de-weighted until they completely disappear taken over by the new ratings. National Scrabble organizations compute normally-distributed Elo ratings except in the United Kingdom, where a different system is used.
