Not before they have spread their high grades around like a pox amongst
lower graded players. It's going to be 10 years before ECF grades
trully reflect a player's ability.

Well the new grades are out. The new system is meant to allow for a perceived grading deflation which has taken place over the last few years, and also for the fact that juniors tend to be undergraded.
My new grade is 181, compared to 173 in the old system. A junior who belongs to my club, James Foster, has been adjusted from 139 to 175!
Some players, ...[text shortened]... rs strip away the grading points of all these players who have been increased artificially high.
Originally posted by Dragon FireI think you could make 2100... right now its just beyond the bend.
I had hoped to get back up to ECF150 which = 2000 but thought I'd need to do it OTB but now I'll be ECF149 by doing nothing this year so revised target = ECF165 or 2075. I'd like to make ECF170 in 2 years but just like I failed to reach 2100 here I feel that is a step too far.
Originally posted by SquelchbelchI'm coming out 150+ on the new system. Feels much too high to me too.
83 in old money, adjusted to 109!
Originally posted by TyrannosauruschexI know, but they are included on the grading list for reference: it still doesn't make any sense to me I like the old grading system!
The new ratings are used to calculate next years grades but are not actual ratings for this year - your original rating still stands until the end of the year.
Originally posted by skimsI think you misunderstand.
This is ridiculous, I don't understand this new grading system!
I've gone from 126 (old system) to 151 (according to the new system)!
This just does not make sense. There is a player at my club who is way way better than I am (he's about the equivalent of 2100 Elo)
Last year: Me 107 Him 175
According to New grading: Me 151 H ...[text shortened]... have to be many new sections, like U130 being called the 'minor section' instead of U100?
