I personally do NOT like the new Live chess setup. if you agree with me please say so here and maybe we can change their mind.
NO i dont agree ,,,the new live chess is much better specially that u can control all the setting while u r in live chess AND much easier to find an opponet and creating games...
A convincing argument.
it's like a pair of new shoes!
you'll get used to it bro!
just like i did and it only took me about 5 mins.
I was stoked when I saw the new live chess, it looks awesome, you get a bigger board and it's easier to follow. All I can do is thank Chess.com for their generosity to the free members. Relax, you'll get used to it.
I don't like it and will be stop paying my membership soon unless I can use the previous one. I can't find out how to get the board to fit the screen and just want to be able to look up and issue challenges for the amount of time I can play for. It is not much to ask. I wish they had just left it.
I greatly dislike the fact that the board size changed without me choosing to do so. One gets used to a certain size of board (as well as other aspects of its appearance) and it is a really bad idea to impose a change on users without them having the option to leave it like it is. I am not even sure there is a way to make the size and appearance of the board close enough to what I am familiar with to make it comfortable to use. If chess.com ignore this point, it will clearly show they don't care about the experience of their users.
If you use the gear wheel icon next to the chat tab then click on Style you can adjust the board size in there (and save settings).
How about starting with explaining what you dont like about it? Just saying "go back to the old way" when there are clear improvments over the old way isn't going to sway anyone, and makes you look like a troll. But, if you discuss what you actually don't like, your opinion will gain more respect.
ok, kohai. Easy to miss that since the option is not available in one of the modes (and is only accessible through that inconspicuous cog in the other mode. And even then takes no effect until you save settings - why not immediately?)
Please see the update/edit at the bottom of the Development blog post...
The fact that I had no idea that post existed suggests that the information is not being provided in the ideal way for users (i.e. where they will find it if they need it). When such radical changes are introduced, surely the thing to do is make all the information that people might need (not very much really) very prominently linked from the page they see? Not difficult to implement, really.
The new layout deprives a member the freedom to choose the rating range he wants to play.
As long as I can play chess I'm fine. I think the create game controls are a little harder but I'm sure I'll get used to it.
I too like the old version where I can chose the highest rating of the opponent I want to play.
The new updated version does not allow me to set the highest rating of the opponent I want to play.
We adjusted the ratings-range control for new Seeks!
You now have two fields to specify EITHER a relative range for your own rating ( “-50” & “+100” for instance), or an absolute range (“1400” & “1600” for example). The only restriction is that, either way, the range must include your own rating.
