I am new here, learned chess many years ago, but almost never played, Another member said many members use chess software to make their moves. I have to take a lot of time to make my moves so I play the 15 minute games. Is it wrong to use computer software to help you win, or are the software users just trying to learn. If I wanted to play a computer for $10 I can buy chessmaster and play a computer off line.
Is there a way to nicely ask the person not to use chess software to make moves? If you go over a game and see that software was used, should it be reported and to who? Or does anyone care about people using software
Do you think a lot of people use software in the slower games. I am rated at about 1000 to 1100 and I am in the just learning stage. I make to many blunders
Probably over half use computer assistance here. Anywhere from 50 to 67 percent, I'd say. More even in the "online" games.
I don't know. I have yet to play a game where no material was squandered, and don't suspect any of the players who beat me cheated.
This is completely unfounded and in my opinion very innacurate, that's way too much. I have played a lot of games and never felt I was playing a computer.
At the OP, at that level I wouldn't expect any cheater, cheaters usually have high rating.
whats the point ? I don't think people waste thier time on that, no fun ?
I rarely have time to sit down to play, and I play far worse when I try to play "quick" games—I'm sure quick means different things to different people.
I tend to play 24 hour to 3 day games, and the only software I use is the analysis board provided. Why would I want to watch someone play a game against a computer? I have never felt that any of my competitors was using anything but mushware to make their moves.
Far more paranoia than cheating here for sure!
of my few games here (255 bullet/124 blitz/44 standard), as far as i remember, i think someone used a chess engine against me only once.
so... don't worry about it too much? or i might be lucky/naive.
