solution to my problem is become a paid up member emptys me wallet a bit ,but puts me on a level playing field or does it turn me into one of them.???
normally i'd argue but i recently experienced this problem and it's definitely annoying
in this tournament game which is 14 days per move
after move ...34 Nc3! ,the game took like 10 months to finish . game went really fast up to that point but after the 34th move i had to wait 14 days for every move
So you joined a 14 day per move game and are complaining it took 14 days per move? I completely understand... I yell at my opponents when they call me for running out of time in a 1-0 bullet game.
i don't think you completely understand ,i think you missed the part where i said the game continued pretty fast before the losing move of my opponent . from that point on he slowed down intentionally just for the sake of being annoying . always making moves on the 14th day at the last minute
it's ridiculous and you trying to defend this is even more ridiculous but as i said at the beginning of my previous post ,i'd be in your shoes and arguing with me on this if i didn't have such an experience
Dude, only 10 months? You play incredibly fast games here. I have had games go three years.
Ok interesting thing to lookup - a stainless steel, antique, all-purpose no-prize to whoever can find out the record for the longest game in terms of time (not moves) at chess.com.
Ubik ;smart move putting there(not moves)but im going to put it here anyway ,longest game was 269moves,I.nikolic-Arsovic-belgrade 1989 ended in a draw.
How many years did that game take?
ok here,s one,slowest game on record;Francis eugene Brenziger-karl Brenziger 1859-1875 also adraw. Ubik42 what have you found ???
269 moves no time recorded.this one amazing,Longest running-daily chess column everday without interruption for 52 years,now thats dedication for ya
I need a vacation from threads about vacations.
if I have a game last 52 years, I would want a week vacation somewhere in the middle of it.
There needs to be a limit on how long of a vacation you can take at a time. May I sugget a week long vacation to be the limit at one time?
It won't ever have a worse idea unless chess.com appoints me as the official chess.com jokemaster who decides taste, decency and what is humorous in all jest, jokes and comedy on this site.
And when I take my typical 2 week vacation every year, this will help me how, exactly?
2 weeks is good Ubik,but 2 months sounds more like unemployed.
Well, I still want to see how limiting my vacation time helps me as a player.
