Re: Ratings miscalculation -- Greater Des Moines Challenge, Round 3
This is a really solid idea. I actually do this for myself, keep my rating from the start of the calendar year. I actually keep it in increments.
Overall current rating. (about 935)
Rating over the course of the current year. (about 948)
Rating over the course of my most recent 25% of rounds. (about 959)
It really gives me a much better feel for where I am as a player than my actual listed rating. The most recent 25% one and the current total are kind of meh because one is too fluid and the other is still influenced by long dead rounds. But the rating over the course of the current calendar year is something that I think is pretty helpful to keep.
