One guy in a losing position told me something like "your play is so boring ...I cannot concentrate on such a boring game".
"Stupid winner". I Lol`d so hard
Opponent: "You won just because I was playing badly, you stupid noob!"
Mandatory subsequent "wtf".
I beated a guy a couple of times he was rating 100 pts under me. In the second game when I was ahead he offered me a draw, I declined and then he threatened to report me. Finnally I won and he reported acusing me of cheat.
Big loser with no manners.
ive had a couple games where my opponent has told me:
"hey! nice engine buddy!" very funny because we are both really low rated players, i made about 3 blunders on the way to finding one odd move that won the game for me. how would you be able to say as a 1300 player, with confidence, that you know youre opponent is using an engine?
i enjoy it though and i keep hoping more people accuse my of using an engine, its a huge compliment!
"Nice chess engine you got there"
to which I reply
"yeah you saw how it totally crushed your houdini??"
lol good one
Well I was in my school library once and I got challenged to a two against 1 match by two year sevens. I was the second best player at my school at the time (I was second to my friend Danny but now I have overtook him and I am the school champion) and they wanted to challenge me so they could go up the school chess ladder. I was thrashing them and then we came down to the position where they had 2 legal moves which both resulted in checkmate. So the two year sevens said "I really got to think about this move" and wasted about 5 minutes (we didn't and still don't have time controlled games in the library so when the bell goes for the end of lunch the match automatically ends in a draw, if they drew me they would move up the ladder but not overtake me) so I complained to the librarian and she threatened to disqualify them if they did not move so they moved and I mated them and they moved back down the ladder.
I had a 1200 announce mate in 15 on me once. It was early in the game and a very complicated position. I was pretty happy that I was able to go all 15 moves before the mate. the engine guys are out there..
a player told me in a otb tournament that I should have said check because he was in check and he didn't notice so he moved something else.
He said checkmate to me with the piece he used.
The problem was however he was still in check and had to use that piece to prevent the check. That resulted in me in winning his queen and the game.
He complained to the tournament leader and found the fide rules of chess.
another player told me in a team match, yeah you were plain lucky I had a won game but then you checkmated me.
In a single game, my opponent:
1. Questioned the legitimacy of my birth;
2. Called me a computer, and
3. Insinuated that I was a pedophile.
I guess he was upset about losing.
Here are some classics.
"My cat jumped on my keyboard."
"I thought we were playing loser's chess."
"I have arthritis in my fingers."
"I've recently had surgery on my hand and can't move my mouse properly".
this guy I played complained that my play was too passive when I refused to trade pawns when it wouldn't benefit me, and he was in time trouble. He said I was bad player that made him lose on time and that it didn't count as a win for me.
hahahaha some funny stories
Like a week ago I was playing bullet with a guy and I beat him, he offered me a rematch and I declined it, then he immediately wrote "Run you coward! Run away puss".
So I offered him the rematch, he accepted and I whooped him again.
He just said "You are lucky that I am tired" hahaha
I have been playing chess for one and a half year, and have noticed, that
trash talking etc. sort of diminished after 1500+ or maby it´s just an illusion and i just dont mind them anymore..
did you play against Trump?
I get a lot of weird ones when I play on FICS. I remember some guy dropped a piece, I think it was a knight (??). He then started spamming takeback requests, I never offer or accept takebacks.He then started sending me this in chat (cant remeber word for word):"haha I only played that move to see if you wouldnt give the takeback, ahahaha now i know youre a loser hahaha" or something along those lines.Then youve got all the standard insults.
Nah, same impression here.
It's not that poor players are jerk, it's that jerks are usually poor players : with general intellectual laziness / atrophy, you will both insult when you feel insecure and be poor at chess.
