This seems like a no-brainer but Chess.com has one of the worst lags and if you are playing above 40 pings you are effectively losing in bullet games. This is most effective when playing shorter-time controls as the server registers the opponent's move before you see it on the board and your response is also delayed. After all Every competitive first-person shooter compensates for lag but after some tests on Chess.com it seems there is no compensation which is weird considering Chess.com hosts many tournaments. from my experience, if your ping is above 50 you lose 1 sec for every move because of no lag compensation which is one area Lichess is better at. This gave me vibes of elitism as if Chess.com is better than Valve CS2 or VALORANT because as I said first It's such " a no-brainer "

The site absolutely has lag compensation but it's not unlimited.

I read that before ..It doesn't in practice if you test it
