Find your rating

This page provides access to the ECF internet ratings lists. The lists are updated on a monthly basis as ECF internet club games are played. Enter your surname or club to retrieve player details including unofficial rapid and blitz internet ratings from beta test events.

Rating Calculation

Initial ratings are based on a player’s OTB rapidplay rating, or standard rating where no rapidplay rating is available. Internet ratings are provided separately for rapid games (Game in 11 mins to Game in 29 mins) and blitz games ( Game in 3+2 mins to Game in 10 mins), and are calculated using the standard elo formula applied to online games between ECF club members. Internet ratings are completely separate from OTB ratings which are not changed.

Beta Test and Official Ratings

The page is currently showing test ratings from beta tournaments held from June 2019 to December 2019. Official ECF Blitz and Rapid internet ratings will be provided based on games from ECF club events played from go-live in January 2020 onwards. The ECF internet ratings will be published monthly with the first list appearing in February or March 2020.

Ratings will be 4 digit elo numbers calculated using the monthly grading formula as published on the ECF web site here – Monthly Grading – with an initial seed rating based on ECF OTB grades converted to elo numbers.

(ECF Internet ratings are based on internet club/ team games only and are completely separate from ECF OTB ratings which will not be impacted by internet games.)
