          We want advanced study plans. What we don't want is ppl. complaining about our complaints.  Cool

          None of you even deserve or need advanced plans, appreciate what ur given, its so ironic that you rely purely on this site for advanced plans and nowhere else I bet everyone who made a complaint had just got a higher online rating and then sudenly thought that they could do advanced study when actually they barely tried out the main study material.

          These comments are literally just filled with people constantly complaining about the lack of Advanced Plans and then people responding and then more people responding. Constantly complaining isn't gonna cut it. Chess.com has a lot of resources. As I hate to say it sisu it right. And its not really that hard to make a simple study plan for yourself. So just shut up and play.

          Just don't give up on your track of improvement and you will be GM. I belive anyone can achieve that title. Just be maniac(in term of practising).

          The thing about chess is that after the basics, to do advanced work, there are so many things to list, and if you study them you may still never become "advanced". I know a guy that studied chess for most of each day and could not crack the 2100 USCF level, because he was studying "the wrong things". Lower rated players need patience, persistence, self criticism and someone to open their eyes. At the 1600-1700 USCF level, a coach will do you wonders because they can pinpoint weaknesses and direct you in the right directions.

          So, I doubt that "advanced plans" will be here because things take on an individual nature.

          I'm tire of waiting for the advanced study plans, this is rediculous. They were coming soon for years, and now they've been coming eventually for months.
