Which type are you?

FIDE has added some points to the ratings of players below 2000 to combat rating deflation and make the system more fair.

However, not all players have the same attitude towards this change. There are mainly four types:

  • Type A: Happy with their new rating and don’t want to play anymore to avoid losing points.
  • Type B: Motivated by their new rating and want to play more to improve it.
  • Type C: Cautious about their new rating and want to play only when they are ready.
  • Type D: Don’t care about their new rating. Play or don’t play makes no difference to them.

So, which category do you belong to? How do you feel about your new rating and how do you use it? Let us know in the polls.
