sorry to say but this site is full of s@#!@. Like this "hiring", it is misleading....amongst other things...

To continue, first of this site is that they have the best name, further, the looks are excellent, they have many feautures like puzzle race etc. which are original and well made, but they are not honest.

The site contains many annoying bugs (getting paired is a drama) and they e.g. simply accuse you of being unfair after getting paired to a person you don't apply but after many clicks and screens passings etc. you at least got confused and got stuck with a game you did not ask for. Further, often I got paired with +/- 1000 elo difference and then they keep saying 200k+ people online, I cannot believe that....like other sites, with less logons much easier / quicker/ more fair paired.,,,,, so this critics I wrote down of being accused and penaltylized for unsports due to their stupid parining!!!

I actually love chess.com and think that it is the best chess website, but opinions differ.

What time control are you looking for games? I play mostly 1 minute bullet or 3 minute blitz, and have never had to wait for more than a handful of seconds for a game, but if you're looking in a less popular time control, maybe that's contributing to the pairing issues.

Unfortunately, if you simply abort games, the site adds that to your unsportsmanlike rating and that makes it even harder for you to find games.

he also talked about the number of clicks to use when looking for a "custom challenge" (dk what it is in English just estimating)

david

Custom challenges are always going to be much less successful at pairing than any of the default ones - although the site supports them, they're much, much rarer, and you'd need to be willing to play with some pretty significant rating gaps.
