  FIDE's Continuous Tense = Pure Nonsense

FIDE's Continuous Tense = Pure Nonsense

04.09.2013 /   Andrejic, Vladica (2210)

14.04.2013 /   Andrejic, Vladica (2210) : Rogulj's Blitzkrieg: A Long-lasting April Fool's Joke or a New Rating FIDE-ology?

18.08.2013 /   Andrejic, Vladica (2210) : How to prevent rating lag?

I've been criticizing FIDE a lot in my articles, yet they keep on making the same mistakes without offering any explanation to the public. This imperious monopolistic body of invisible men behind the chess rating lists has been demonstrating incredible incompetence over the years, yet is very pedantic about collecting their rating fees.

Trivia Quiz: Who is the youngest, and who is the oldest FIDE rated player?

The oldest rated player (at least – according to FIDE) hails from Iran: Mohammad Reza Nouredideh sports a seemingly modest FIDE rating of 1779, which is in fact an absolutely brilliant achievement for someone born in 1792! Once again in awe of the wonders a human brain can produce, I can only wish him to improve his rating beyond his année de naissance (or nonsense – if you ask me) for his 222nd birthday... The youngest FIDE rated player also comes from Iran, and seems like a child prodigy that will soon rule the chess world: Alireza Firoozja, born in 2013, has obviously managed to successfully overcome the confines of his cradle and perpetuating needs for mothers milk to earn 1913 rating points at such a tender age! Non-rated players, obviously unburdened by calculations, transcend even these figures: Georgian Nikoloz Gigauri was born in 2 (AD, I'd presume), and we hope that he'll live long enough to meet the highly anticipated Moldavian Hadirca Dionisie, (to be) born in 2022, and Spaniard Felip Ayats Camprodon, who'll be born only a year before him.

If you still have the stomach for some maths, then we have some news from the FIDE Bugsville: for those who manage to play more than 35 games in a rating period, the sum of an old rating and the points gained or lost is still different from the newly calculated rating for both Rapid and Blitz FIDE rating lists.

I've listed below all such cases for the three most recent rating lists, but you can also check my older articles for June 2013 and January-May 2013 outputs. If we check the stats, out of 276 cases from the Blitz rating lists, FIDE software gave a correct output exactly 6 times! Even better, we have a shutout for the Rapid lists: 10 out of 10 performed calculations couldn't survive the number-crunching procedures known only to FIDE. When we put it all together, FIDE has a 2% success rate, which makes both the Rapid and Blitz rating lists unacceptable and utterly useless.
