Or highest rating ever, rounded down to the nearest fifty, could be your class.
Your highest rating ever: 1579 (rounded down) -> 1550
Then you could have participate in the absolute 1550 class. All the players in the class would have had at some point a rating between 1550 and 1599. If they had ever had a rating of 1600, they would fall in the absolute 1600 class.
