Ratings and their calculation
Types of Ratings
Battle Chess portal has three types of ratings.
Depending on the time control, i.e. determination of the game length, chosen in a particular game, its result will affect one of three players ratings.
Thus, every player can choose the most acceptable and comfortable game speed. Games with computer do not affect players ratings
- LONG a rating which takes into account the results of all the long games played by a particular player. The game length is indefinite
- BLITZ a rating which takes into account the results of all the medium-duration games played by a particular player. The game can last no more than a month since the beginning.
- SUPERBLITZ a rating which takes into account the results of all the short games played by a particular player. The game lasts from 5 minutes to 24 hours.
The ratings are calculated as follows.
The change in the rating depends on the number of points subject to a game result (N) as well as on the opponents rating. A winning gives N = 1, a draw gives 0.5 points, a loss gives 0. The higher the opponents rating, the higher rating a player gets in case of winning. The number of points that one player gets in a game are taken away from his/her opponent. Thus, it can be suggested that if a game between a strong and a weak players is a draw, the formers rating can fall. All the ratings are calculated by our server and change automatically on your page after each game you have played.
A novice gets a rating of 1,550.
For your convenience, battle and classic chess ratings are calculated separately and divided into five levels:
