    Cen is now 2507. Is that the highest rating of all time for RHP? Engine or human?

    I meant was 2507 the highest ever rating here regardless of the use of engines or not, and of course the extreme probability is it is an engine but what is the highest rating of anyone here? I mean a guy or gal who actually plays different people, I heard of one dude who got some kind of bogus rating by playing only one or two people, if I have that right.

    2507 is the highest ever attained by an engine on here, engines use to top out at 2350-2450. Back in the day when engines were banned thousands of points were removed from the system. Now this doesn't happen, I think that has caused some rating inflation. Also, more engines = more rating points jammed into the top 1%.

    The highest rating ever is User 558671. He created multiple accounts to get that rating, a quick look through his history shows his other accounts.

    How could he have possibly done that? max rating of 3021 - 1200 to start, he added 1821 points in 20 games. That is 90+ points per game. How is that possible? I thought the most you could gain in one game would be something like 32 points. At that rate, he would have only been to 1840. This doesn't make sense.

    Ratings are calculated a little differently for provisionally rated players (The first 20 games). If you win your first game on the site, your rating = your opponents rating + 400. He was actually rated 3060 after just one game, the other wins caused his rating to drop.

    Golden King (User 285560) managed to get over 3000 as well.

    Let's say they turn a blind eye on them. Pretty much admitting chasing down the users is taking up way too much time because a number of games need to be analysed and then the move percentages matched to some combination of CPU and software.

    I've just noticed that Ulf has entered one of the pending site tournaments. What's the point of anyone else entering?

    So that you get a free win if you are the one plying him when he does get banned?
