V3 is all about the ads, chess.com used to be about the game.  Voice your complaint here https://www.chess.com/news/v2-end-date-update-no-date-set-9298

You don't see any ads. I don't either.

I do believe that ad loading may be responsible for a lot of the lag that unpaid accounts experience.

have ad-block up and had to resign myself to losing half my blitz and rapid games on both laptop (windows) and phone (android) due to chess.com lag and freeze

don't even attempt bullet anymore

Loose, ie to set free release, or my trousers are loose.

Losing, to lose, not win.

Right. Edited.

there is an obvious problem with the servers. Repeatedly, I play a move, it is shown normally at the board, the clock shows I have, say 5.5 seconds, and then it tells me I lost on time without the opponent replying, or it suddenly changes from 5.5 to 1.7 or whatnot.

And this has been happening for a while now.

I Agree. Blitz lag I can tolerate. Bullet game is a whole different game though. Two second lag can make you lose the game.

Lichess bullet is just a lot better, no lag there.

This is why I avoid using the website unless I need to do something like conditional moves, which can only be done via the website, not the app. I find the app quite comfortable and responsive, but the website makes me want to go running out into the street screaming like a lunatic! Having tried it a few times already, I can positively state that I will *never* try to use the website for live games; it's simply not a viable option. A very sorry state of affairs, and something that chess.com seriously needs to address.
