Which is the record for concurrent users on Lichess? Are we getting more and more players everyday? Share some stats please.
It seems to be rising all day every day. In my experience it seems to peak around big chess events, either during or just after.
@lovlas but do we have a number?
Well there was just over 42k online about an hour ago. Donno if thats the highest recorded.
@lovlas yeah I love it! If I want to interview Lichess creator how do I request it?
You could try sending an email to email@example.com requesting an interview.
I sometimes look at the number of "Blitz players this week" (COMMUNITY -> Players -> Rating stats), which reflects the active users in this variant, to get an impression of lichess player evolvement.
This number is constantly rising since I discovered it - hoping the logic behind counting the players does not change. ;-)
Here is some stats:
___4,696 UltraBullet players this week.
147,232 Bullet players this week.
293,466 Blitz players this week. ________ (Noticed the numbers)
