How do points work?
As a TryHackMe enthusiast, we know points are important to you. As you may be aware, if you complete a public room, this will award you a certain number of points. Usually, the rooms difficulty will increase or decrease the points rewarded to you. Challenge rooms are naturally more difficult and, as such, will award you more points compared to what we call "walkthrough rooms".
Completing "walkthrough" rooms within the same month that they are released will award you 25% of the available points to your account; the points will be counted in both the "Monthly" and "All-time" leaderboards. However, completing "walkthrough" rooms older than a month will only award you 25% of the points towards the "All-time" leaderboard - not the monthly leaderboard/Workspace leaderboard.
Completing "challenge" rooms within the same month they are released will award 100% of the points to your account on both the "Monthly" and "All-time" leaderboards. Completing "challenge" rooms not released in the same month will still grant you 100% of the available points towards the "All-time" leaderboard, but only 25% of the points will be included in your score on the "Monthly" leaderboard/Workspace leaderboard.
The leaderboards and "Top X%" calculations on TryHackMe will only take into account your points if you have more than 100. Having less than 100 points means that you won't be on the leaderboard, but you will have a message on your dashboard informing you how many points are left before you become ranked.
The monthly leaderboards are calculated from the points given above. Monthly points reset to 0 on the last day of the month at 23:59 GMT.
The #1 ranking at that time will receive a badge on their THM profile and a random security gift.
Here is where you fight for your place on the wall of fame. You are ranked with the value of your account points against every TryHackMe user. Your prize is #1.
Only the points from "public" rooms will increase your rank and level.
The first person to complete a room (first blood) will gain more points than the rest of the users.
Challenge rooms released this month give you 100% of the points (to your all-time and monthly scores).
Old challenge rooms (not released this month) will give you 25% of the points to your monthly score and 100% to your all-time score.
Walkthrough rooms released this month give you 25% of the points to your all-time and monthly scores.
Old Walkthrough rooms (not released this month) only give you 25% of the points to your all-time score, none for your monthly score.
The "Monthly" leaderboard resets to 0 on the last day of the month at 23:59. The #1 ranked user will receive a badge on their profile and a random security gift.
