    Hi RUSS,

    Would it be possible to have the average rating of a players opponents in their profile?

    ie. Joe has played 5 games aginst players rated ...

    1350
    1200
    1550
    1800
    1780
    average=1536

    This would give some indication of a players level, other than their rating which can be manipulated to a certain degree.

    Thanx in advance of response
    James

    I am assuming you are want this in place to complement the current rating system rather than replaceing it.

    Yes, ideally. I just think it would be an interesting statistic. We already have the fastest mover, why not the bravest player as well. Judge it on their opponents average rating. I wonder who'd win?

    Excellent idea.

    I would recommend a slight twist...Have the average over the last 30-50 games. Those games are the most reflective of the current rating.
