I just hit 2000, and I have been playing chess around 1 year. I wonder how long does it generally take to reach 2000 on chess.com and if I am below average or not.

It took me around 18 months or so, which I've heard is above average. Meaning that your progress is astronomical, and you should be proud of it. After all, on chess.com, 2000 is better than 99.9 percent of the users.

It might take 2-3 years to get 2000.

Yeah it seems. Some people are just exceptionally talented. One of my friend who started out in the corona period/lockdown is now a 2300+ player. While me, who had started all the way back in my 2017, is still rubbing my @$$ in the 2000s.

It seems like you are also once of them. You have a bright future. Keep going, Hikaru is waiting for you!

usually it would take a LONG time... but some people are fast learners so its not a problem for them

it just depends on how much time and commitment someone has, however, 1 year is quite execptional and you should be proud
