✔=moved to BETA: Adding a more generic Modern Defense to "Starting Position" drop down menus...

FiddlerCrabSeason

Greetings- 

Can the chess.com elves please add "1. e4 g6 2. d4...  Modern Defense" to the "Starting Position" drop down menus in both the a) daily tournament creation and b) daily game challenge? 

This would 1) accommodate both 1. e4... and 1. d4... players who want to practice facing 1...g6... and 2) give both sides more flexibility than the two Modern options currently available in those menus (the 3. Nc3... & Pterodactyl lines).

Thanks!!

Not sure what you mean, but a) my questions wasn't copied from anywhere, b) my bad, if it's the wrong forum and c) I don't have a clue as to anyone else's site.

If you choose to start with custom FEN you can start at literally any position you like.

True, but then my games will not show up in the opening explorer.

You are right for now, but we are in process of changing that. 

FiddlerCrabSeason

Changing it to what extent?

jdcannon

Changing it to the extent that they will be in explorer. But i am not sure on a time line for that. 

FiddlerCrabSeason

Thanks for the info.  In the meantime...  Any chance of adding this opening to those drop-down menus?

JD - Any update on when the Exploreer will also include games that begin with a custom FEN?
