What do the above statistics tell you?
Wesley reached the top with the least no. of games @ 528 during his entire chess career from 2003 to 2014- i.e. 12 years.
Carlsen has a busier itinerary of 1668 games. Magnus has played 3.16 times more than Wesley. Wesley only played 32% of what Magnus has played.
The same can be said of all the other players.
Hear ye all. Lest I be mistaken, let me make myself clear. My lamentations are not meant to troll or provide self amusement..nor are they meant to stir the calm waters and create a tsunami. Rather, they are part and parcel of an honest crusade for justice and truth. I do not speak for Wesley. He can speak his own mind. I only articulate in defense to what I believe is just and true- to which the elo system is not. It gives a result greatly dependent on volume of activity - for a couple players of equal strength, the one with more tournaments logged in with turn in the higher numbers. That's why Carlsen is on top...he gets countless tokens to play the video game, when all is counted and done, he will surely top Wesley who is given only one.
I have nothing against Magnus...the system is to blame. Fortunately for him, he and his fellow goldfish stand as the beneficiary...Sadly for Wes, he and his fellow barracudas and the rest of the sardines and planktons stand as the casualty.
Is it that hard to see? Probably not...the problem is maybe you folks are not able to see more deeply. You are all in a hypnotic state. Snap out of it. It's a mirage your seeing. Time to break the projector which is flashing a wrong image in the video screen. Is it Magnus? No it is Wesley.
The point is and what I am trying to say is that Wes will remain disadvantaged compared to the pampered ones in the absence of invitations to closed tourneys..he wouldn't have enough time and resources to participate in opens too.
Wes' star will appear perched low in the sky when viewed from an elo telescope..I don't need any optical device or magnification glass to know that Wes is under rated. My naked eyes tell me so...There he is in the high firmament..on top of them all ...outshining the rest, he is the true Sirius http://earthsky.org/brightest-stars/sirius-the-brightest-starr... of the chess universe.
And I am not joking...I am serious.
<Maatalkko: Quotations from The Book of So:>
"And it shall come to pass that the Fourth will be First, and the low rated shall rise, and the mighty shall be fallen...."
"By these signs ye shall know Him: He who rises from the East and gains points numbering two thousands and six hundreds before his fifteenth year, shall come what may remain the greatest player. He shall qualify and will not be pampered, and He shall not lose nor suffer defeat."
"And for three years He shall rest, gaining but few points, as He bides His time awaiting the fulfillment of his destiny and realization of a prophecy- the coming of the true chess messiah..."
"Thou shall not keep any Gods...
Nobody but So."
