Default Top Player Ratings Over Time

Two graphs showing the top players through time, and also relative to their ages.

This is generally most guys who ever hit 1040. There are a couple top players that aren't current members so I couldn't see where they peaked. There was also somebody (Simon, maybe?) that hit 1040 for one rating period but I didn't include. Let me know if there's somebody obvious I'm missing.

So this shows one of two things imo - more players as the years went on made better top end players, or there's ratings inflation at the top of the sport.

Nice chart, thanks for posting

The study I did on ratings decline with age for established pros showed no loss until age 40 then about 10 points every five years until age 60 then 20 pts per 5 years to 70. Not enough data after that.

And/or technology ratings inflation and learning at younger age.

If not for 2 people, would these graphs indicate ratings deflation over the last few years?

Cale Leiviska is missing from the 1040 list. Barry Shultz and Steve Brinster have been 1039.

eh, I didn't say what was causing the ratings inflation

also, yeah the top 2 are showing very high ratings, but I think you'll see if the chart was expanded a pretty significant increase in 1020+ rated players compared to even 5 years ago.

I don't know why this phenomena exists, but it's there.
