Atomic Chess League TEAM

On Lichess, rating is not always a reliable way of determining a player's strength. Sometimes a player's rating will be above his playing strength, and sometimes below.

The Atomic Chess League is an attempt to create an accurate rating system by pairing players with similar ratings against each other, instead of high rated players against low rated players.

It is divided into 5 leagues:

1. Beginner: < 1500 Atomic Rating
2. Intermediate: 1500 - 1750 Atomic Rating
3. Advanced: 1750 - 2000 Atomic Rating
4. Expert: 2000 - 2200 Atomic Rating
5. Elite: > 2200 Atomic Rating

Please note that the ratings above are only used for the initial assignment to a league. Also, it's not your current rating that counts, but the average rating over 30 days.

By playing games against other players, you can advance through the leagues and get a better ranking! Find out more about how this works in the "Instructions" post.

Don't know how to play atomic but want to join? Send me a private message and I will explain to you the basics of Atomic Chess, and then add you to the Beginner's league.

Official Start: May 13
