Round One of a Chess 960 Tournament and everyone plays the same random board, as white and black against opponents..all good, but then ..when/if you progress to Round Two, what do you get ? the SAME BOARD AGAIN ! ?? this now actually makes it a Thematic Tournament rather than 960. If you've ever encountered this you'll know the dissapointment at seeing the same board again that everyone's played to death in multiple games the 1st Round, it would be appropriate for 960 to have a fresh random board for each new round. So please I ask fellow 960 enthusiasts to contact Chess.com and send them a message asking them to put this right. Link below takes you there..

If you don't want to have to explain it all, then just send them the link to this page. Thanks
I agree. Why does everybody have to play the same board anyway?
I think they get it from OTB tournaments, where you only play one color each round. Then having the same position each round evens out the luck of having a good position. It makes sense for that reason to keep the same board for all games in a single round, but here you play both colors each round. You might as well change positions between rounds. I think it's more in the spirit of 960.
I agree it's not fun to have the same position in all rounds.
To keep it equal, you should play in the same position with black and white against the same opponent. You can have different positions against different opponents in the same round. That should work.
