SCANDAL!!! at chess.com

Well, at least to me. I am incredulous about this. chess.com allows players to stop the clock indefinitely using an obscure button called vacation mode. Any player who doesn’t like the way their games are going can go into vacation mode, Astana la vista baby!!

Unacceptable. This is a massive violation of the essence behind such a noble game. I remember when Karpov was fighting hard, taking his last gasps before yielding to Kasparov. Karpov tried hiding out in his chalet rather than having to come down and face the master. FIDE SENT A DRIVER UP TO GET KARPOV AND FORCE HIM TO PLAY1!! Why does chess.com allow squirrels to dominate their web Play?

You blather away, saying nothing. Is the clock a factor or not? You have no speaking role regarding the topic because you’ve played ZERO games a-hole

play unrated

You’ve played a lot of bullet and blitz games. I suppose the vacation mode doesn’t exist in those arenas, and that’s where I see a better possibility for. Playing at chess.com. So I wonder, after playing over 10,000 games in those modes, why would you suggest simply playing unrated?

I completely agree with you

If George Michael´s song has not been palyed here, it isn´t really a scandal. 💀🎈

Awwwww sad.png I thought you were going to say that Danny got caught smuggling whale-ivory chess sets or that Hess eloped with one of the ChessBrahs.

 

This isn't a scandal, it's just a complaint!

I agree too this vacation mode needs to go because too many people abuse it. just cause they can't handle a little drop of terminated happy.png

The worst one I had, guy set to auto-vacation, just never moved, but logged in everyday.

So was let lock run three days. Time out, auto-vacation. log in. let clock run.....etc.

So that way, he only burnt one vacation day, every four days.

He drew out 9 days of vacation for 36 days that way.

This looks like a great idea esp. when I am losing. How do I do this? Will it abort the losing game in Blitz as well? Of course, I am asking for a friend.
