I’m working on path to get my initial FIDE rating. I joined 8 local FIDE rated tournaments with result as follow.

  • Rating = Result

Rapid Ratings November 2022 1083 = 0

Rapid Ratings March 2023 1142 = 1, 1192 = 0

Rapid Ratings April 2023 1162 = 1

Rapid Ratings May 2023 1534 = 0

Rapid Ratings June 2023 1184 = 0, 1103 = 1

Rapid Ratings July 2023 1210 = 0, 1162 = 0

Rapid Ratings Aug 2023 1245 = 1, 1150 = 0, 1119 = 1, 1092 =0

I had played more than 5 rated games with rated opponents and scored points in those games as per FIDE initial rating handbook, but I did not yet get my rating this month. Based on my hand calculation, from the result, I might get initial rating around 1100. Need help from expert who know the reason why above result not fulfill initial FIDE rating requirement.

    First thing. Congratulations, looks like you are doing well. Secondly I'll have a look see if I can figure it out. The ELO calculation is a little goofy though so I'll see what I can figure out. the main issue you'll find is what's called the k value. Hopefully fide provides that because it's a chore to work backwards and figure out

    Additionally K is not used at all for initial calculation if my understanding is correct. Sep 22, 2023 at 7:04

    Hi that appears correct in your instance but it appears your opponents case it is. In regards to your rating your calculations look right, FIDE often drag the chain a bit and even though the results are there the initial rating hasn't been assigned. The two aren't dependent for some silly reason. If it's more than 2 months engage them directly

    @Dheebs Tq sir. I found it is really confusing. Will engage them if it is still not updated.
