27th July 2011, Kuala Lumpur – Here is a picture message from FIDE’s official blog which announced changes to rating regulations effective 1st July 2011.
I can only hazard a guess from the above, that it would be easier to obtain an official FIDE Rating as games against rated players can now be accumulated. Previously you need to get three games in one tournament against rated players.
