0.1 premove delay

LaCokaNostra


Chess.com will someday solve the problem with premoves? It looks funny as possible in 2019. I would easily win this position at Lichess, but on Chess.com I cannot physically win this position, because I just don’t have time to promote queen.

You didn't say if you were white or black or how much time was left to each.

I guess you want to be able to win it with 0.1 seconds left for white.

I think that is ridiculous. Moves take time. Pretending they don't is silly.

Don't be silly.

In reality, even 0.1 seconds per move is too little. The time charge should reflect the reality of the minimum time it takes to move a piece and then hit the clock.

It would be interesting to know what the time differential was between a move by mouse and a move OTB. I presume it would have to be compared twice to compensate for the player having to reach across to press the clock.

This is complete nonsense. This is online chess, not a live tournament.

There's some post about it online by Danny Rensch, the gist is basically he believes that live chess should be somewhat like real-life chess in that it seems a little weird for moves to take no time.

I don't particularly agree with it but it is not a bug but a conscious planned decision by chess.com, and I doubt it'll ever be changed.
