SPEED

Nanadru
I play mostly blitz 5mins.

I have a speed or time issue. I most often lose on the clock and it's annoying because I have winning game. How do I check if it's my personal internet speed issue.? Is there another way to check on chess.com. such thing as ping? Thanks

What do you mean by “ ping “ .......just asking.
Nanadru

I don't know what ping means. but I know from other chess sites ICC has a way to check ping. lower ping means faster speed. Good for fast games. If anyone knows please message me.

 There is a connection bar to the right of your name when you play live games, it will tell your internet connection happy.png

In live chess, entering the "/ping'" command into the chat box (and pressing enter of course) will show the ping count of both players' connections. My ping is often larger than 100 ms, sometimes even more. In general, the larger the ping count, the laggier a connection is,

I have been playing with this useless "+600" ping ,+(100 ms loss for premove) for 1 min bullets games,.(700msx40= 28 secs loss in one minute). In a 40 moves games, I only get "30 secs /game rather than 1 min " , it is a matter of decision when to think , and when not to think,( not to spend time). 

Btw, I have, 100 Mbps locally though.

As a matter of interest, checked ping elsewhere.

Turns out to be much better.

They show server performance too.
