All players start with a base rating of 1200. This rating changes based on games won, lost, or drawn, and reflects your skill at Lexulous. A higher rating indicates higher playing skills. To view detailed statistics and other reports, see your stats page.

Rating system we use:

We use the USCF rating system, check out their website for details.


1. Defeat higher rated players to win more points when you win a game and lose fewer points if you lose the game.

2. If you lose to a very low rated player you may lose a significant number of points.

3. Rating changes fluctuate quite a bit for the first 50 games, so don't be alarmed.

4. If you draw a game with a low rated player, you will still lose points because it took that player more skill to achieve a draw against you.
