Live Komodo on Chess.com

Makragiciiiiic

Hi,

I have one suggestion which I hope you will implement in near future. I would LOVE to play slow-chess games (45|45 or 90|30) against Komodo on Chess.com, however my main issue is that Komodo plays instantaneously. Other human-like chess engines, take Hiarcs for example, have option "think on move", where computer doesn't move right away, but spends couple of minutes on the move, imitating human player.

I think that this is greatly affecting the game, because when you play slow game, and you have 10 minutes left and yet computer has 1 hour, that is not something you see in regular OTB games...

Play against Stockfish.It doesn't go fast like Komodo does.I have experienced the same thing a lot,and it makes me play really bad chess. All of the beatable levels of komodo (10-19) play super fast too,unfortunately.

Have you played any slow chess games against stockfish? How much time does it spend on move?

Also, how do I play against Stockfish? I didn't know you could play against it on chess.com.

Yes, I play 60 min games without increment vs Stockfish. It usually spends over a minute per move. And yes, Stockfish plays here on chess.com.

Anyway, I hope people who're developing Komodo on Chess.com take this into consideration.

The Komodo Boss is actually quite slow. I once made a draw with the Komodo Boss, and the Komodo Boss took an average of 74.7 seconds per move, which is pretty long, considering that I took an average of 27.5 seconds per move.
