I watched you yesterday MSC157! Nice!!
Really? Hope you enjoyed! :)
Hey guys. So, in practice, if I want to play blindfold I do it mysefl and it would be totally up to my opponent to show or no show pieces on his/her screen? Meaning, when doing the automatic Live search, my opponents won't even know I play blindfold, or the search will give hits of pleople with blindfold on their settings? How does it work?
opponents can use or not use blindfold pieces as they prefer. there is no indication on the seek graph as to whether you will be playing blindfold or not.
Since I would play very weak in blindfold, is there a possibility to set up different Ratings for Blindfold games?
I'd also like this, even if there were cheaters, I don't think it would be such a problem :D
I also would not care much about cheaters, I would play blindfold just for the sake of blindfold training but I dont want to screw up my normal rating ...
You just set to unrated, and that's it.
Yes MSC157, that is the way I do it now, but wouldnt it be nice and motivating to have a possibility to have a Rating for Blindfold?
Well, with the Cursor changing when you mouse-over a piece it is still possible to kind of cheat...
What do you have in mind with "cursor changing" and "mouse-over a piece", I don't understand it really...?
But yes, I totally agree with you! :)
The cursor changes from an arrow to a hand when it's over a hidden piece, so you know that a piece is there. Try it in a game. Run your mouse over a board and you will notice that when it's on a square that has a piece on it, it changes from an arrow, meaning that there is nothing that you can grab, to a hand (like how it changes when hovering over a link).
Really? Haha, didn't know that. I don't recognise this as cheating, 'cause you MUST move, but yeah, really interesting. :)
The way I would play blindfold bullet. :D
