but there is one more feature which chess.com does not have : full screen feature.
in chesscube, we can enlarge our chessboard to completely fill our screen but in chess.com , it is not possible. i would really like this feature being added to chess.com .
maxine_aue: i don't know, but I had made steadily gain in my cubits (got around 8k) but few months ago, it doesn't seem to keep going up, it got stuck.
But I think it is because at login it gives you 25 cubits, but few months ago it used to give 25 + lots of small bonuses for stupid things like "play 1 game" or "play 1 tournament".
I prefer Chess.com.
Thanks for the info. I did notice that we no longer get the cubit bonuses for playing one rated game or entering one tournament. I used to sign up for a tournament then log off before it started, just to get the free cubits haha.
But, this is how it is now: we only get 140 cubits gross for winning a 100 cubit game. This means the house is taking a 60 cubit cut. I think last year we got 185 gross for winning a 100 cubit game.
Am I remembering this wrong?
The only time they take no cut or a negative one is when VIPs play games for free, or when VIPs play a 25 cubit prize game.
The ONE AND ONLY thing in which I feel chesscube is better than chess.com is that players can play Live Chess960 there.Chesscube is no match for chess.com in most of the other significant aspects tho, like simplicity, security, maintenance, active forum, more titled players, livestream tv, articles, groups/team, correspondense chess etc etc etc.. and most of all, the cubit system of chesscube is a pain in the neck..
i say chesscube
i liked the cubit system that was a few years ago know its shit but im a vip and i dont have that kind of problem plus i can earn chess videos buy playing and not paying on chesscube the players are stronger of course chess.com has tactics trainers but i go to chesstempo for tactic which there if you have a premium account is better for chess metor i use the chess combat simulator or try to make a plan from a position in a master game.The tournaments are better the server hasent annoyed me like chess.com.And what i like the most is that the rating system is better then chess.com.
The only up side is that chess.com has a forum that most players read only reason why im here.
chesscube seems to be more aggressive in seeking your money...
no, in y opinion, chesscube is much better. chess.com sucks. you can see it on your own : http://www.chesscube.com/register/?referrer=konstantino07
I was a regular Chesscube user. Not anymore. I now prefer Chess.com for various reasons:
Overall, Chess.com is straightforward, very user friendly, is designed and works in the best interest of Chess.
Chess.com: 9 out of 10 (-1 for the ordinary user interface, sorry )
Chesscube: 6 out of 10 (without its attractive user interface, it would barely get 4)
I like chesscube because its ratings are closer to fide ratings.
But chesscom is my main chess site.
u jst shut up likhit
I think Chess.com is far superior to ChessCube. If you ask me, the only good thing about ChessCube is its user interface. Other than that, I think it would score a 1/10, because the cubits system is appalling and the crowns are unimaginable unless you pay or are a very strong player. I played on ChessCube for a couple of years, but then discovered Chess.com and realised it was a lot more realistic.
chess.com for sure. Wish I had spent more time here and started playing here sooner. ChessCube is all about making money. Unless you gamble (play for coins), you'tr limited to about 3 games a day as they award only 40 coins a day and charge 12 per game. Here you can play all you want. I strongly urge you NOT to buy the so-called "VIPs" they're pushing - bought once, got banned 3 days later because my rating was too low (they call it "sandbagging"). Still can't get a refund...
Never had a problem with the management here, very little censorship (if any) and all around good people. On ChessCube the forums are dead, you can't post there unless a mod approves your message, very heavy censorship. Discsusions about chess are almost non-existent.
Chesscube has a chatroom... which is essentially private as anyone the old, regular members don't like can be muted, shadowbanned or kicked for any little thing. Topics that are "allowed" vary on an hourly basis... And god forbid you get on the list of people mods don't like - you're basically an easy target for abuse, insults, harassment as they won't interfere in anyw way, shape or form (basically, you're sub-human at that point).
