Keep it real
We like to have fun. We do not like cheaters. We don’t like bullies either. If you see any abusive behavior, please report it. Cheating will result in temporary bans and score adjustment. Repeat offenders will be banned permanently.
SparkChess uses an Elo-based scoring system like the one used by chess federations. Read more about the way the score is calculated here.
The scores cannot be directly compared to FIDE, USCF, etc. Elo. By design, we use different coefficients to make changes in scores more dynamic and to reward higher-ranked players who play with lower-ranked ones.
