why is chess.com (the only website i have this problem with) so slow?
My primary complaint is bullet chess:
1. constant lag
2. pieces unresponsive when i move them
2. pieces not moving (yes #2 deserves repeat)
3. premoves never work...usually about a second for mine
4. time spent on moves is not reflected on the clock
my network is fine, and my computer is fine. chess.com is not fast enough to play bullet. how is it that I can play online video games, which are a billion times more complicated, with no problems but when I want to play chess I can't even get the pieces to move. oh, and btw, I tried to bring this up in help and support chat, but guess what...it was slow and unresponsive.
And it even took 10 minutes for someone to respond to this
Responses times seem to be improving though.
Chess.com - slow site. Its a real truth! Chess.com want to be #1 in world. But need change site engine for speed.
Now #1 in world, I think - [Removed by Moderator - Please don't promote competing chess sites] Why? Go there and you'l understand all. Chess.com - fallback for me only.
thanks ill check it out
Yes, very often, the site is unusable in blitz games, must improve a lot.
if you look on my site you will see i have played thousands of blitz games , my rating online and for longer games are around 1600 and 1700 , i don't cheat but never ever do i win on one min games no i don't get checkmated i simply run out of time and i play fast with with careful opening in pre move sure i have fallen for a few of the quick mates because of pre move but i have come to believe i have grown with thousands of games on one min , like i said i don't cheat i don't use a engine and i don't apply any tricks to my clock but here is what i think , i used to feel that my problem was with playing cheaters , but i don't feel that way any longer , i honestly feel it is chess.com that is at fault , i don't know if they improve your clock speed as a member , but i feel it is a possibility , like they are in control of these games more than i want to admit , before i say any more , i run my computer direct to the modem , i don't have any other apps or programs on and i use both a chess clock and stop watch and i have others watch my time and the challengers yep my clock is so off sometimes by 12 to 15 secs no i don't get lag so... i stopped blaming cheaters i blame chess.com for controlling this aspect of the games
thousands ... meaning over 11,ooo games
Amphetamines might help.
Relax. It's not that bad. Just slow down. Help is on its way.
this didnt use to be so slow for me. . . wtf happened. . .
its extremely slow because the cheap bastards wont increase their bandwith budget, servers cant handle the amount of traffic.
Yeah, I'm sure that for want of relatively cheap bandwidth they'd let their flagship offering falter.
I'm typing as fast as I can, and then it gets posted 2 yrs ago.
Whoa! Time travel!
Someone should do a comparison of chess sites. Measure latency, bandwidth, and cpu cycles.
Chess.com is always slow ......they never bother to improve it......
Horrendous lag, I don't know what to do and it is frustrating when I'm in the middle of a blitz game and all of a sudden everything lags except for my ticker.
