Very rude disruption by "Welcome to the Stone Club"

Stone club?  Hey I'm already in Silver.  Stone reminds me of tombs.

That's a weird flex, but oh well... Great job being in Silver League!

Fact: leagues are ruining the site because of the extra points players get by farming them in arenas. If you are going to have this, arena needs some serious improvement such as

1) not throwing players into lopsided games. I played 2 arena games tonight. The first was vs a 900. The second, vs an NM.

2) we need members only arenas so we aren't facing swarms of sandbaggers and engine users. 

3) How about more rapid arenas? I looked this evening and at the time I looked, there were no rapid tournaments except for one that was supposed to start an hour or so from the time I looked.

I left leagues after the first week because it became clear that the leagues are trash and ruining the site in a huge way. Not only did I leave the leagues, but I cancelled my diamond membership and I will not be renewing it despite the fact that I have maintained it for years.

If arena + leagues are what chess.com wants, fine - but I refuse to be a part of it or financially support it.

It's been happening generally for a few weeks now. An add pops up and freezes the screen. Exceptionally rude, I agree.

Some people are gone but not forgotten while others lean more towards forgotten but not gone.

I recommend visit https://www.chess.com/leagues/ and on the top right side (at least on desktop browser) you'll see an option to "Leave league". It feels like a very poorly implemented idea for many reasons, I'd rather just not be involved in it.

Thanks. Just did that. Everything about the league system rubs me the wrong way.

the stone trophy matches my avatar, flair & background, so i won just enough games to collect it & then stopped.    😆
