I'm sure this will be spat upon, but after playing over 100 games here across probably 80 or so different opponents, I've noticed that the current rating calculation doesn't accurately gauge how close of a battle I'm in for...
I've met a few opponents ranked at least 200 points higher than I at the table and smoked them - I've also met people ranked ...[text shortened]... think this would give a more accurate representation of the player's true skill...
I like your reasoning, but I think 2 ratings might overcomplicate things.
How about if we just keep the one rating and show how many games were won or lost by timeouts.
This could either be a percentage of the total number of games, or just as a number of games.
This would give people some clue as to how many games were actually won or lost by checkmate or resignations.
