Chess.com should be realistic when I joined I was a "gold" member but things (system) broke or were stopped by chess.com which I used several changes to the interface have occurred none asked for.One of the streamers publicly accused people of cheating (on YouTube with chess.com mod tools showing the user names chess.com was the paid for the video) I did not pay for this and stopped paying. Oh yes  just recently chess.com sent me a message saying one of my opponents violated "fair play" and said I got points back. They listed my occupants points, My points after the game. But he was never flagged (a ya you can admit cheating and chess.com will forgiv3 and raise prices.

I am sure some mod will correct me I only hope he will prove it.

Look at the price increases and ask yourself are you getting anything for your money.

More people would pay if chess.com would give them what they wanted. People play free for two maybe three reasons.

1.they can play unlimitted

2.they post in forums

3. if they cheat they just say to chess.com I will not do it again and there free

When I first joined the site, I was a basic member, not long after purchased platinum, because I found value in it and felt at the time it was the best value. Upgraded a year later to Diamond for the additional features.

 

Members have to decide if the features offered at a specific price/tier have value for them, and that hasn't changed. Starting September 1st, new potential premium members will still have that decision. The lower tiers on that date will have additional available features compared to the current ones (such as the video library and no limits on puzzles, including Rishxand Battle).

 

Regarding point 3, the site gives second chances, but the original account is not used

I blame OPEC they make gas more expensive and with gas being the base for everything else in the world when it rises everything rises. If the person who runs the grocery store can not fill his gas tank he needs to raise the grocery prices. If the Basket maker can not afford grocery's they must raise the price of the baskets. If Erik cannot afford a basket he must raise the subscription price for his internet chess site. It trickles down but it all starts with Mohammed Sanusi Barkindo from Nigeria the secretary general of the worlds most powerful carrel.

While that's all true (I don't know about the last sentence though) it doesn't really matter much. People have different priorities. What's important to you might not be important to your neighbor. 

Two years ago everything you just said was predicted if X were to happen. And then X happened, and everything that was predicted came true. BUT for many people it doesn't matter. They are willing to pay the higher prices, put up with higher crime, higher food prices, inflation, a recession, and lose a certain amount of freedom and independence in exchange for something else. 

If you like someone, you'll put up with almost anything they do, no matter how harmful.  If you don't like them, no amount of good they do will matter. It's just human nature. 

I can't blame chess.com for taking advantage of someone else's mistake.

The price changed so much for Platinum, this is for my country.

If chess.com would post financials that support this, I would be more understanding. At it stands now, I doubt they're paying their employees in line with inflation. Bugs and sandbaggers and cheaters are rampant on the site. They created a yearly subscription verified account process where every other online game has offered it for free for many years.

The verified project was both a verification and entry into prize events.
