I have a 1570 blitz rating on Lichess that's provisional with a ~116 RD. I'm exhausted and have been working on this for like ~17 hours straight. Let's see if I can pump that blitz playing 3+2. 

Do you understand why that players with higher rating numbers on chess.com,  will still be at a lower percentile on lichess?    Do you understand what a competitive match is?   Its when players are equally matched.   The fact chess.com is full of smurfs doesn't make it more competitive.  It makes it faker.

I can understand the sentiment. But it does beg the question: Then what are you doing here?

The ratings on the other website is inflated that's why. You need to substract about 300 or 400 points to get to a rating here. The rating of this website is much closer to the actual rating (still inflated by a lot).

Some of these accounts just repeat virtually, or verbatim, the same thing consistently. /shrug

play me 1 v 1 in blitz/bullet and we'll see which site is tougher
