    What is the magic formula for translating a RHP rating to ICC rating?

    Nothing.

    It's two different genre.

    Saw 1600 CC players have 2200+ and 1000- blitz both.

    Oh, Really?

    I expected some correlation between CC and slow games

    ICC is not slow games.

    Standard time control mostly means something between 15 0 and 20 20. Which is not slow. And the same 45 45 league and STTourney's 60 0 count into that standard rating as well which doesn't make the picture much clearer.

    Fewer quality players play standard. 15-minute got a little better over the past few months with a few more titleds, but I think all in all it's more boring compared to 5-minute and blitz.

    Blitz is more defined since it has a lower and upper time bound as well, but blitz is different from both CC and 'slow' play. Especially if you have a good mouse.

    multiple a random variable times irrelevance and then subtract the average rating of your opponents and you'll be close to accurate
