Is this a record?

Post by Phil Neatherway » Tue Jul 22, 2008 11:47 am

My grade has gone down from 168 in 2005 to 142 on 2008. That's 26 in 3 years. Is this a record? :(

It's not unusual. It's an extreme case of grade deflation. I'd not worry. Just sit back and wait for the new improved ECF grading formula. You'll be pushing 200 before long :lol:

I have seen examples of players giving up, moving abroad or moving to higher plain to get their rating up.

Playing juniors will bring your rating down, so try to avoid them. :wink:

I played James Adair when he was 116, next year 150 and now 175!
