The answers here are nonsense. I’ve been playing chess for 50 years and I’ve been on and off again on chess.com for 3 years. I’m currently rated under 300 on blitz and around 600 on 10 minute. My score goes up to around 400 and 800, then I get destroyed in 30 straight games. 
Some conclusions I’ve drawn:

* I’m not chess smart. I throw away pieces like crazy. I can’t remember lines. I can’t see more than one move ahead. Maybe I shouldn’t bother.

* the lessons are useless. I can’t follow the tutorials and see why a move is a good one despite reading and doing most of the lessons, I don’t get any better.

* the puzzles are useless. The patterns repeat in the puzzles but not in the games you play.

* sometimes you are playing an AI designed to lose games and lower its score then spank you hard. There are quite a few.

* many hyper competitive people set up the game in bluefish on another device or window and let the engine tell them good moves

* several opponents have admitted to making alts disguised as beginners because they are sociopaths who enjoy ruining your day. when I leaned chess back in the 1970’s, I was taught it was a gentlemanly game requiring etiquette and sportsmanship.

Today, YouTube videos of chess hustlers have turned this site and others like it into smack talking mostly determined to make you upset so they can schadenfreude.

My suggestion is to play the computer. It’s your best bet for a fair game. Unless you enjoy getting thumbs down emojis every time you move. Or play people in person so you can enjoy yourself.

Sure some people cheat the"competitive people " rarely cheat why cause at a competitive level it is complete and utter disrespect to cheat

Sure here are sandbagges but actually according to sandbaggers themselves most actually do not chat and are lagit 800s unless it is those arenas don't cheat don't cheat (alot of cheaters like to troll on arenas but from my experience alot don't cheat there )

Maybe you arnt good at chess thats fine but dont say the lessons and puzzles are useless they are not they have helped so many people get better you are most likely doing something wrong which is fine but they aren't bad ...

* I’m not chess smart. I throw away pieces like crazy. I can’t remember lines. I can’t see more than one move ahead. Maybe I shouldn’t bother. try to think more than none move ahead and ask yourself "what is our opponent going to do but yes some people are realy bad at chess 

* the lessons are useless. I can’t follow the tutorials and see why a move is a good one despite reading and doing most of the lessons, I don’t get any better. your problem not the lessons problem get a coach that teaches well and fits your style of play learning endgames and how to convert up a queen is super helpful but actually I never used leasons to get to 2000 I just focused on openings endgames and middle games 

* the puzzles are useless. The patterns repeat in the puzzles but not in the games you play.actualy they so repeat in the games you play just not frequently playing games is pattern recognition to not just puzzles

Puzzlws is more learning how to calculate winning positions but the difference between puzzles and games is there are almost always winning moves in puzzles it is already solved alot of chsss positions are not

* sometimes you are playing an AI designed to lose games and lower its score then spank you hard. There are quite a few.you mean stockfish or of cheaters that's dumb chess.com doesn't put bots in pools anymore tales up alot of cpu it costs money you know 

* many hyper competitive people set up the game in bluefish on another device or window and let the engine tell them good movesactualy it is the opposite the people that aren't compatible and stuck chet consistently 

Judt depends on the person I'm competitive I don't chata most titled players don't chata ether they are also competitive 

* several opponents have admitted to making alts disguised as beginners because they are sociopaths who enjoy ruining your day. when I leaned chess back in the 1970’s, I was taught it was a gentlemanly game requiring etiquette and sportsmanship.yes well all got banned but one cause they closed there account or something 

I play against a lot of 800s all the time they suck at board vision and miss stupid stuff I really don't think the 800s your playing against ror cheating most games you are just as bad as the 800s and just as good as the 800s 

Today, YouTube videos of chess hustlers have turned this site and others like it into smack talking mostly determined to make you upset so they can schadenfreude. chess drama is unrelated to YouTube there has always been chess drama even in the 1900s 

My suggestion is to play the computer. It’s your best bet for a fair game. Unless you enjoy getting thumbs down emojis every time you move. Or play people in person so you can enjoy yourself. yes otb is a good suggestion

One more thing if you think chess.com makes bots to give easier play to 2000s I dare you to play me and see what happens you'll maybe get one win out of like 20+ games.. it will not be so easy (you didn't mention that but some people say that )
