I personally feel like ratings are too inflated here on CodeChef up to a certain point and that most people with the same stars differ in skill greatly. For example, I am 5* here on CodeChef (closer to 6* than 4*), yet I fluctuate between 1650 and 1800 on CodeForces. On the other hand @sharath1999 is also a 5* coder, but more of a 2000-2100 on CodeForces. See the difference in rating? There are many 6* people who are 2300 on CodeForces, but also 6* people who are 1700 (this is also without cheating). In my opinion there needs to be a rework of rating system, but not as in add stars, change stars, etc. but make it more difficult to gain rating. Don’t let every 1700 participant who gets rank 500 in Div2 get 130 points. What is the point of rating system and stars if we get 100 points per average performance? I was among the bottom 50% of 200 people yet I got rating. Is this a joke? On CodeForces you can’t maintain master being 600th of 1300 Div1 participants, yet here I am 110th/200 people and gain 50 points. WTH???
So if 5* is 1600 on CodeForces, 3* is probably 1200 and 2* is 900?
I like CodeChef as a platform, the problem quality is okay, it’s all in all a decent place, but stars really aren’t a measurement of our skills now even for the honest participants in Div1.
