What are leaderboards?
Updated over a week ago

Leaderboards show the ranking of players on Chess.com in various game types or areas. There is a leaderboard for Bullet, Rapid, Blitz, Daily, every variant, tournaments, and even for Puzzle Rush!

Note: if it is not showing your position on the leaderboard, you may need to activate your account.

You can also get to the leaderboard by clicking on ' global' next to your rank for any game type in your stats page:

Once you are looking at the leaderboard, use the dropdown to select the type of leaderboard you want to see:

You can also view the leaderboard just among your friends, or for any club that you are in, or any country in the world by clicking 'global' and choosing from the dropdown

To the right of the leaderboard you've selected, you will see your own stats and position:

Keep playing to climb up the rankings!

Why aren't I on the leaderboard?

If you aren't showing on a leaderboard where you should be, this may be because you have a new account, or because you haven't played any of that game type recently.

In order to appear on leaderboards, your account must be at least 7 days old.

You also must have played 20 games of that game-type in the past 90 days. If you go 90 days without playing a blitz game, for example, you will be removed from the blitz leaderboard until you play 20 blitz games.

Your account must not be closed or muted. If your account gets muted you will temporarily be removed from leaderboards, though you will return when your mute expires. Closed accounts do not appear on leaderboards .
