Hey people !
First of I would like to tell you how awesome this website is. One week ago, I did not know about it. I first wanted to play a game of Chess online with one of my friends. We tried a lot of sites but they didn't seem to work out that well (too short Turn Time Limit).
The first thing I thought of upon first arrival on this website was "damn, must be another shitty website that wants to rip and use my Facebook informations". I don't know why I thought that (logo, maybe ?) but after reading a little bit I saw it to look like a serious website, so I decided to give it a try.
So I started the game with my friend, and the first thing I found to be very cool was that I had some choices of Time Per Turn limits, but I could ALSO enter my own time limit. The game was very long and fun. We were live on skype while playing so - having set the timer to 120 minutes Per Turn - we had awesome discussions about various subjects and laughed a lot too.
But sometimes, my friend was thinking about his moves. In those times, I would explore the website. And that's how I discovered about all of this awesomeness. In one week, I have made subscribe 11 of my friends to chess.com and I am playing on 9 games simultaneously with the app on my phone noticing me every time it is my turn. Long story short : there isn't an hour in a day in which I don't play Chess at least one time.
So, here's for my suggestion.
The Live Chess has a multiple choices of Turn Time Limit + bonus time. You can also enter your own if you want. That's already cool, but I think there could be another choice that could be called something like "Chill With Your Opponent". This type of game would have something like 120 minutes per turn AND include a live Webcam. I think it would be a very cool experiment to make, and would probably lean to new friendships.
So, that's about it ! this website is truly awesome ! I'm serious about the "Chill With Your Opponent" idea ! It would be a great advance for chess.com. I don't know who will read this or if the message is gonna reach to the decision makers, but at least, I'll have tryed.
I wish you all good Morning / Afternoon / Night
Hey :) It's cool
And what do you think about the "Chill With Your Opponent" idea ?
Define "Universe". Give two examples.
