chess.com supports cheating

So, just because pre move doesn't always give you advantage it  doesn't make it level playing field. Why bother changing the goal posts in half time in soccer? Probably making the game fair on level playing field. I do not ask you to change your way of playing. All I ask for is the option to play against somebody who does not play with pre moves but currently it's not possible. Not making this a choice possible means chess. com supports cheating, that is not creating level playing field but they could.

    You know, every online chess site I've been on has the option of premove. Why don't you go bother them and leave the adults alone?

  • #103

    Am I missing the obvious connection between pre-moves and drunk driving?  I'm going to go way out on a limb and guess that chess.com does not support drunk driving.

    You didn't take Moon Logic in college?

  • #105

    No, back then only standard logic courses were offered.  Maybe moon logic was added to the curriculum sometime after I graduated.  Hell, I went to college so long ago, I don't recall seeing any diversity courses in the catalog.  I would bet at least a minor in diversity is a graduation requirement nowadays.  wink.png

    yah think, and no wonder when society attempts to legitimise quackery.

    Twospirits? half the public secretly? Hilarious, clearly we need moon logic training and some magic crystals.

    to wanmokewan. So why don't we have that option here?

  • #108

    I wondered why this topic had been allowed to stay alive for 9 days without being closed and then I read it to see.

    No, the problem with chess.com and most others who play speed chess is they are obsessed with only the play and don't play with an increment or delay. The increment or delay should be the key, the other part should be a simple excess. 1+5 Fischer or 1+5 Bronstein should provide fast enough chess.

    Pre-moves are used because of the lack of enough time to play the move. I have sometimes pre-moved recaptures because unless my opponent captures the piece it doesn't come into effect.

    Because nobody but you seems to care about it. If you leave, fine. It's not worth anybody's time to fix such a minor issue that bothers only you. 

    Get over it. Or leave. No matter to anybody else

    Obviously does matter to you. Why don't you leave, anyway? I have every bloody (human) rights to play on level playing field. Why would anyone choose pre move without getting any benefit of it?

    You don't have a right to play without pre-moves here.  You don't even have a right to play here.  Only a spoiled brat would suggest that playing online chess without the option of pre-moves is a fundamental human right.

    I have as much right to play without pre moves as you have to play with it. The problem is that I do not have the option to choose.  You obviously argue for pre moves because without it you wouldn't have a chance to win against most players.

    Wrong.  I choose not to use pre-moves because I don't like committing to my next move before my opponent moves.  I've won a number of games because my opponent pre-moved and guessed wrong.  And not because I made an unusual or illogical move but just because I didn't make the move he predicted.  If he wants to save time by making pre-moves, all the power to him.  But unless my next move is forced or obvious, he takes a risk that could cost him the game.

      I thought this thread was locked yesterday..?      "I have as much right to play without pre-moves as you have to play with it. The problem is that I do not have the option to choose".           That makes NO cents at all.  Premoves are based on free will.  IF,   you make such & such a move then the responce is xyz.  Your using your free will to fall into a trap and then complaining that it's Chess.com's fault you got trapped. Also, your much too young to be making drunk driving analyagies from post 103. "You only die once"meh.png.   Really,surprise.png that's what your going with...??

    Not necessarily. I've never used premoves because it would probably make me to play even worse, but the average online player is not a caveman like me. Given how this virtual environment for a game is conceived, I think it is a basic feature. I don't care, for me real chess is OTB, and the news, no premoves are allowed there!

    You forgot that most of his opponents are using premoves. So it's giving them both an edge.
