wooly your wrong chess.com may be a pig, a communist, a democratic scumbag or really shady server with decorative patzers of all types of garbage rankings but they aren't a mcdonalds!

I like chess.com cause I just dropped $40 for a yearly membership cause they deserve it, though I also like any chess thingy that supports the game we all love. (yes I remember getting an ICC membership years ago.)

On lichess there aren't a million popups and buttons and crap cluttering the screen, and I just click once to start a new game.

But IMO the puzzles and forums and videos and clubs (etc) on chess.com are superior. Everything is better except playing the game.

can't really agree on the puzzles but yeah clubs/videos better though the layout and designs for club/team battles looks and feels way better on lichess than on chess.com it just feels more in the moment and like a dramatic climatic battle than something making me feel individual

Oh, well I just meant puzzle rush > puzzle storm.

Just normal puzzles, maybe chess.com sucks, IDK. I notice there are topics where, you know, some 1000 rated player is rated 5000 in puzzles (or whatever it is). Definitely doesn't make me interested in trying the puzzles here.

eh puzzle storm is tougher in comparison but i can see why you might prefer rush as there is more flexibility and much more options there to choose from than just storm having only 3 mins

Especially for new accounts, Chess.com is very annoying. It takes 7-10 clicks to start a new game. Lots of popups to close all the time like 

OMG YOU PLAYED AN ITALIAN OPENING

OMG YOU CHECKMATED WITH A QUEEN

 

Get that crap out of my face

I clicked around a bit and didn't see the option (edit, ok I found it this time)

Which is another thing... at one point I was interrupted and accidentally went to play instead of live (or the other way around). I'd only enabled premoves on one and not the other, so I had to finish my games without premoves.

Which isn't a big deal, but it's just another inconvenience and more unnecessary clicking.

LICHESS IS BEST!!!

Say that in Lichess

Wits-end

Only in today’s world can one moan and cry about a horrible experience with an APP that allows one to sit lazily on the couch and engage in a GAME for FREE. Priceless.

Exactly 👍

I play on both. Puzzles are much better here. And more fair play on lichess.

I spend a lot of my time on the Analysis board here, which I find more pleasing (aesthetically) than the one at Lichess, and a bit easier to customize.

You can also toggle to see Komodo's engine analysis, too, which suggests different moves than the standard Stockfish - another feature that Lichess doesn't have.

Plus, I really like chess.com's Practice section, especially for openings, which is a free service that other websites could easily charge for. I've improved my understanding of various openings, through this section alone, more than I have from any other free resource.
