On November 16, the Iranian government suspended internet access to its country.

Iranian users are some of Chess.com's most active and enthusiastic players; this year, Team Iran won division two in the Live Chess World League ahead of motivated countries like the United States.

Chess.com observed that over 10,000 daily Iranian users were affected by this suspension, and many of these users forfeited daily chess games and daily chess matches.

Unique active users from Iran.

To address these forfeitures, Chess.com is restoring games forfeited by Iranian users and increasing the available vacation time for those users for the duration of the internet suspension. As of today, Reuters is reporting that some internet access is being restored in Tehran. Chess.com is hopeful that full internet access will be restored soon.

Any Iranian users who do not automatically have their games restored may contact support@chess.com to request restoration of their daily chess games.
