The last couple of days I've been getting game after game with brand new members, at least in the 1300-1500 range. The hell's going on? Did chess.com go on a massive advertising spree or something? It's been a while since I played someone I've played before and it's starting to feel like a bunch of bots have taken the site over. (Cue Twilight Zone theme...) This happen to anyone else?
Yep, bullet for me too. What's going on, staffers?
Fair Play Policy. http://support.chess.com/Knowledgebase/Article/View/171/0/fair-play-policy
New accounts can send and accept open challenges, old accounts cannot.
Perhaps it is players with more than 10% timeouts wanting to play in tournaments lol. Or aborters being blocked from playing live challenge matches...
Yep. Since chess.com can't stop people from turning around and starting a new account, there's a limit to the effectiveness of any punitive policy they implement.
trequartista , nothing to do with this topic, but I cant leave a note on your profile
You made me wait at the end of a bullet game with 2 pawns down instead of resign. this is not major stuff (25 sec to go) but still, nothing wrong with pressing the resign button huh ?
I have noticed that trequartista times out. Why don't you become an exx-member??
You are not the only one. Why find it some folks so difficult to hit the resign button? It is a blitz online game for heaven's sake ..
