    Hey People

    I'm curious if anyone here plays on FICS? if so is there any correlation between your FICS ranking and your RHP ranking. I find I play much better across the board than RHP games since I tend to lose track of my tactics. My FICS ranking is currently at 1720 and my RHP tends to fluctuate between 1400 to 1600.

    Anyone else care to share their ratings on FICS or thoughts on the matter?

    different rules, different time controls, different player pools. apples & bicycles. no way to make any meaningful comparisons.

    Even at FICS there is a big difference in ratings. I play 10 0 blitz with a rating ranging betwen 1100's-1200's. If I play 20 minute games, then my rating is more like 1500.

    Are we talking blitz or standard?

    I'm around 2000 on here, about 1500 at blitz, and 1900 standard. Fics ratings could probably go up if I put a little more effort into the games.

    Sorry, I should have specified, I'm talking standard rating, 15 minutes per side.
