Current and future records

All records below are from genuine, ranked games and reflect the strangest, best or worst results from millions of online games played since 1996. This page is not updated automatically, so if you think you have set a new record, please send us an email listing all relevant information, including the "Game saved" line and the record category. We will review your game and update the record if applicable. Do not submit games where the record was chased rather than the best possible margin. Play to win, and if the game is truly amazing, then fame will be yours.

Submitting new records:

  • You will need to better a previous record - just equalling it is not enough.
  • Only games which affect your ranking count (no unranked games).
  • Only naturally occurring, genuine games count.
