Talk about my approach but all my teams do is win, win and win. And we have a ton of fun doing it.
"you've played over 2000 online games and are only 1850"
geez I didn't know a certain number of games is supposed to = a certain number of rating points.
I regret my words even now as clearly Im being an ass,, I don't have such strong opinions about chess and ability and ratings I think it was all the talk of Crushing opponents so they just roll over next time,, that got me going. Alot of people play for different reason's and were it not the clear expression of superiority I would not of brought it up. Such behavior from chess players... very poor taste on my part
Ok, I've see it said in other topics and I wondered is people really might think that somehow.
I agree it seems mean spirited to say your strategy is to crush your opponents when you're regularly facing opponent's rated 400 points below you... seems the real strategy is to play opponents much weaker than you heh.
Other then being bored by your arrogance I am left feeling a bit uneasy. I mean it is more then just a game I will grant you that. but with perfect play it is one that draws so by your example or decimating the poor fools and leaving them quaking is to basically predetermine weaker players. Any strong opponent would at least put up an equal fight with accurate play. Dude, seriously your not even that good. you've played over 2000 online games and are only 1850, your average opponent is 1420 which is like suck city.. Im not better but having broken 1700 with only 180 games and very few full months of play my trajectory would indicate i will far surpass you and soon.. You been on here since 10' you should really study the game a bit more and delegate your admin duties to some trusted associate's. ya know, loosen the riegns a bit.. And Topman is right, you gotta reap your hay before 40 if chess aint making you any cash, and from what i can glean from your rating it is not, you should be doing more vested interests. Dont get me wrong, Im all about comin for ya neck,, in many aspects of life. But chess, I feel is more a noble endeavor and only go for blood as you describe it should the particular advesary warrent. Learn to be restrain yo mighty self. Ease up and make some friends.. Don't need to leave em pissing in their pants.. I used to play football and there is sport where clear punishment physically leave's a lasting imprint, until they come back next year wanting blood..
I mentioned the teams i am Admin of crushing other teams. But i never said how i played against stronger players not once.
Go ahead and look on my profile page and find ways to insult me as much as you can. Look for as many cruel things you want to post here on my stats.
Friends! My only friends when the game starts are my team mates and coaches. Period. I crush my father, brother, son and best friend if they were on the opposite team without blinking an eye. And have did it. I used to ease up ..... wher that got me ....last place each season in a league with a few friends. Changed that and my teams did nothing less than 3rd place and everybody wanted me on their teams and several friends. Won a couple leagues and quicly learned everybody loves the champion when they are the champion at the moment.
I spent 2 Summers when i kept losing. I took an stock of what the teams that won had in common. 1st which is not able to measure by any rule stick. Is the fear they have before they even start the game as they saw what your team did to the previous team. Having everybody constantly telling them how good your team is that they are going to rip your heart out. You said you played football so you know the drill when you looked at the tape. One of the first things your coach told you was you have to stop # _ _ player and # _ _ player. Ray Lewis in his prime. They plan around him if they want to score. Even people that watch football but do not know The Ravens know one thing..... Ray Lewis hits as hard as hell and was fast also.
In one of my groups here we are so competitive we have word games and number games when not playing. Do you think i give them a chance to win and beat me. Nope they have to not only earn it, they have to take it the win. Show me champion and i will show you the same attitude. Yeah yeah that smile stuff is crap.
I play Vote Chess and seen when teams when what they say about the other team. The names they call them are funny and sure the other team would not find it funny at all. I am like a pussy cat compared so other members here. I am not talking about like 10% it is more like 65% of the players are like that in a game. The only reason why they do not show it so much as they might need that person to join one of their other teams to help them win. Ouch i just revealed a dirty little secret of the Veteran players here that you did not know. Nor will they tell you about it.
Another guy attacking me. Great and i have yet to say anything about you directly. Go ahead i have had worse. Even had my opponents call me all kinds of names the first month i was here. I had racial comments my way. No problem. I play on. Nice touch using my profile page.
I mentioned that as an Admin what my team does. And i done in sports also.
And again my teams are filled with players that win, win and win. And this the comments i get when my teams win. The other Admin attacks me long before the game starts. I laugh as all that does is get my team motivated. I will glady take the direst hit if it leads to my team winning. We win, win and win and have fun. Then win some more.
At one time i was just experimenting when starting a team. And my team beat #1 several times in Team Matches. Funny they kept declining to play my team for 2 months. And at the time my team was under 6 months old and barely had 150+ members. They got crushed and recrushed in a rematch. Bragging no. As that same team took some hits against an average team. I learned from some of the best Admins here how to put a good team together. So i have to give them the credit. They taught me how to organize.
I was a horrible Admin and clueless at one time. And came across some Admin with bad attitudes and worse than yours. Played all kinds of tricks in Team Matches and getting me to lock first and they change their team roster then lock and my team get slaughtered. Then other one was adding 1200 players vs 1600+. Why is this bad? That is not their true playing level as they have not finished one game and they are way better. I learned how to invite the right players to create a strong group. I learned that from a female that is a Super Admin of several groups. She is the best at it hands down. I will play for her team as a player anytime and give 200% rain, snow, sick or shine. Have to say she is the best overall SA on Chess.com and gets so little credit for it. But as nice as she is on the outside she has that will to Destroy her opposing team.
Roy Al...please ....for your own good....see a good therapist. No doubt all the "crushing" you "Have did" to players without "blinking an eye" has left you permanently disabled....mentally. Sorry about that,.... and while your at it ...why don't you try "crushing" an opponent with an equal or, better yet, a higher rating, and see if you can still muster up enough wind to accept your best trophy yet....Blowhard of the Century.
"Cruel thing you say about my stats". .....? This guy is unbelievable.
And again i said that my teams have done as me as the Admin.
Yeah all of teams i spent a heavy amount of time with have crushed teams. Not just any teams but top teams. I get those teams to 100 best on the the leaderboard in less than a year. That is the truth. Many opposing teams may not like my team but they respect the results.
I have become so good at Team Matches as an Admin i can get wins in Team Matches at the snap of a finger. Not bragging but for months other Admins have been trying to figure out how i did it. I give the credit they figured some of it out. Since they did not figure it all out their teams fall apart about in 3 months. I was taught how to be a strong Admin by some Veteran Super Admins here.
Yeah i have a mental issue. I am stuck on my team winning, winning and having fun. We played almost all the teams and not the same teams like many teams do here. So nobody can say we got cheap wins. And had games against the same teams they faced. Took in our fair share of whupping just not as much as our opponents.
Keep attacking me and insulting me. I heard worse and it says more about you than it says about me here. All you done was wake me up. Energized and ready to take on all the work i have to do with my new groups. And i look for them to dominate as all i have to do is manage the games going out and players coming in the group. And thanks to you i have 10 new members for each group. So i have not wasted any time and readhed my goal and some. Thank you!
Been all that ....and a whole lot more. Typical human behavior.
Been ALL that AND a chess player??! Well damn who are u?!!
How come u hv the time to do everything?
A Bishop for light squares and Bishop for dark squares. My name was not randomly picked. It has meaning on several levels. Combine the 2 Bishops and they can reach the light and dark squares as i can be busy what i need to do day and night.
LIke i said i learned from the best Super Admins on this site. They took time to teach me a few things. I sat back watched them and did exactly as they said in situations. Took a while as i was garbage at it.
All you done was wake me up.
Hey Admin, first improve ur grammar.
Hey i have been on here for over 16+ hrs. and 14+ hrs the previous days. So i will make grammar mistakes all day long. Sorry about it but it will happen.
I have to send out Invites to my groups and still working on themes and looking for some Admins to lightin my load. I am also in the middle of some Vote Chess games where the team i am on is in a league and in the 8th round and 2nd round(another) if i am correct. Plus i have to restart one of my top teams again.
And to add i have to send out some Team Matches which means i have to find teams that will accept and create them and the condition for them. And i have to do the same for a few Vote Chess games. 2 of my groups need a color theme so i have to figure that out.
All that is just for starters. I have way much more to do as an Admin of some of these groups. Many think it is all fun and games. Yeah sometimes it is. But it takes some serious work to have an average group and insane work to have a strong group.
Cool down man.. I gotcha, u hv a big workload.. But also consider doing something worthwhile other than chess...
Just a suggestion.
I would tell you the secret how to do it! Several players here already have done it. And i pretty sure you have faced several players that do it to you also on a regular bases. But the best at doing it are SVC players as we play on over 18+hrs of consecutive chess easy.
They have groups here that use these playing all day tactics here. Many players use it on me and i use it on them. They just have a different name for it and i have to say a superior way of doing it.
I taught a couple people ..... team mates how to counter it. Kind of hard to figure out but easy to apply.
Perhaps if your parents logged into chess.com and reviewed some of the forums, they might have a more positive perspective. Threads like "Are we a bunch of weirdos?", "Is chess a good way to get chicks?" "Internet Addiction Syndrom" might help.
Is this a private fight, or can anyone jump in?
My parents were very supportive when I wanted to take up chess.
Then they saw me play........
My parents were pretty supportive too. Once I started playing chess, I lost interest in juggling kittens.
Why does anyone ever reply to coneheadzombie? Everything he ever writes in the forums is clearly trolling.
Your parents won't let you play? Gooood, maybe I'll reach 1700 in blitz before you do, haha.
