If you never played blitz on Chess.com, then I strongly recommend you practice for two reasons: to get a feel for the site and to establish a realistic blitz rating. Simply click on the Play tab in the Live Server and change the time control to your preference (e.g. 10 minutes).

Finally, a word of caution to the wise. Always be polite while chatting with your fellow competitors and do not cheat! Chess.com has an experienced Fair Play team that catches hundreds of cheaters every single day. If you cheat, you will get caught. Plus, what's the point of dishonesty, besides the momentary glory of beating someone better than you? It ain't worth it.
