How Points Work

Completing rooms gets you a certain number of points. A breakdown of how questions are scored as follows:

AnsweredScore
1st to answer200 points
2nd to answer180 points
3rd to answer175 points
4th to answer165 points
After 4th150 points

The difficulty of the room will increase or decrease the number of points rewarded respectively. However, "challenge" rooms award more points than "walkthrough" rooms. Users who complete rooms first will always be given "first blood points".

Walkthrough Rooms:

Completing "walkthrough" rooms within the same month that they are released will still award you 25% of the available points to your account, but the points will be counted in both the "Monthly" and "All-time" leaderboards. However, completing "walkthrough" rooms that are *not** released within the same month will still award you 25% of the available points, however, the points from this will only go towards your account and the "All-time" leaderboard - not towards the monthly leaderboard as well.

Challenge Rooms:

Completing "challenge" rooms within the same month they are released will award 100% of the points available to your account and both the "Monthly" and "All-time" leaderboards. Where completing "challenge" rooms that are not released in the same month will still grant you 100% of the available points as before, only 25% - not 100% - of the available points will be included for your score on the "Monthly" leaderboard.

Leaderboards

Monthly

The monthly leaderboards are calculated from the points that are 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.

All-time

Here is where you fight for your place on the wall of fame. You are ranked in relation to the value of your account points against every other TryHackMe use. Your prize is being #1.
