    Good question, what sort of ACF (standard or rapid) and what sort of ICC rating (blitz, lightning, standard, others?)

    ICC ratings horribly overrate everyone.. from about 300-600 points for a rough estimate when comparing to ACF.

    ICC uses ELO, FICS uses Glicko, hence FICS ratings are more accurate. The downside to Glicko is the eventual gradual deflation of ratings.

    ICC ratings are a joke, I think their grand plan is to get newbies all rated over 2000 and GM's over 4000, it's heading that way.
