Why are so few seeking long games?I like to use chess.com for training for OTB tournaments with 60 min games. But as I climb the ratings (even at my humble level) I find it hard to get opponents.Why is that?
yep why i dont play live games here much. some times i play few blitz games just for fun.i play at icc becuse you can get longer games "45 min with 45 inc" or many other types of games.as to why i think its playes why to avoid cheats or they dont have attition spans or to many distractions while at home on PC;tv,kids,wife,work and so on best way to practice for tournies is to hit a good chess club.sorry for spelling and grammer
you can join the DHLC group and participate in live slow events. It's just great: http://www.chess.com/groups/home/dan-heisman-learning-center
You can also publish your seeks in the note section of this group that has gathered specifically for that purpose: http://www.chess.com/groups/home/world-standard-time-control-chess-club-365-days-a-year
It seems to me that chess.com could improve the situation by adding longer time controls to the live chess preset seek menu. Currently, if one wants a game longer than 30 min, one must select "custom" and hope that someone else has selected that same time control. Is there some reason why they don't add presets for game in 60, 90 etc.?
Yes, this group is great, you get a game when you want to play it, no messy back and forth negotiations with your opponent.
