I have to say that the February 2017 URS ratings I looked at are complete and utter crap.
I was interested in a junior age group and to see how the URS ratings compared with Fide.
I was shocked to see that the top three in the world on this particular list do not appear at all on Fide. So I tried to work out why, but the player histories on URS give no result information, just a list of alleged ratings from previous lists. In contrast Fide ratings, or for that matter ECF grades, provide the full list of individual games for the rated player, dating back several years.
Further, although tne URS ratings for Carlsen & Co have numbers you would expect, every checkable number on this junior list (which has around 30-40 names which do not correspond with the similar Fide list) is inflated by around 200 points, suggesting there is some serious generic fault in the software.
Trying to solve the mystery of the three unknowns at the top of the URS alleged global junior list, I entered each name in the Fide search.
Player 1, rated 2000+ by URS, has never played a Fide rated game.
Player 2, rated 2000+ by URS, has played two Fide-rated games, in each of which he managed to defeat an 1100 opponent.
Player 3, rated 2000+ by URS, has never played a Fide rated game.
It's really quite appalling that before this list went public that nobody made very basic checks on whether the URS computer was spouting nonsense.
The existence of this list is an insult to the many hard-working people who ensure that Fide ratings and ECF grades are comprehensive and accurate.
