    i rematch when i win someone better than me :P

    Ok, I'm working on a little connect the dots here.

    If you want a rematch, I am assuming you

    Lost the first game. You probably want a rematch because you are upset about the loss, And you want revenge.

    Reality: this is a game! Instead of getting upset and spamming the rematch button, click the analysis button and figure out why you lost. Hope I helped.

    I actually  let my opponent win one game before calling it quits.Yes i'm a saint.

     realizing people they encounter online are just as human as the people they encounter in every day life, but...

     

     

    no. there's a big difference between people who you know and with whom you interact in real life and the completely anonymous avatars you encounter while playing internet blitz/bullet. it's not the same thing at all.

    obviously it's some human being behind some screen somewhere, but you have no information about this person whatsoever. or at least you're not supposed to have any information about them. you cannot talk with and/or interact with someone in real life and not have at least some information about them. and it's usually a considerable amount actually.

    I also don't understand why people would care all that much about rematches in the context of internet blitz/bullet

    for 99% of us it doesn't really mean anything. it's supposed to be fun/entertainment.

    +1.

    Emotion motivates quite a few rematch requests!

    Thanks for proving my point. Whether you feel you have enough data about them to be able to "judge" them or not doesn't change anything about the fact they are a human being, just as I said. So saying, "no" to an established fact just won't cut it.

    The so-called "5-minute" and "15-minute" chess available on some servers offers a solution to this problem. You can't pick the opponents, and you can't rematch.

    Thread title should be:

    You should be forced to accept rematches

    I rarely play rematch, usually because i do not want to play another game straight away. The only reason might be that a player deserves one in my opinion, eg. Goofed and straight away resigned. but those situations are so rare. The option of starting a match, like i always do when i meet a chessbuddy in real life, would be a match with first to 6 victories. The rating consequences don't really matter if you just want to know who is the better player. The thing that bothers me at times is that players who have just won, request a rematch, that is just rude.

    some humbuggers never give up on this topic

  • #97
    He gave up on the topic ages ago - you seem to be the one going around reviving all of them. Why on earth would you do something like that? Anyways, I would think that no other chess site out there forces rematches either. And that if really wanted a rematch, he can play Online Chess tournaments, where you do play your opponent twice, once with black and once with white

    How about a rule that anyone who demands rematches instantly gets put into a "rematchers only" pool where it is mandatory for all players to play an infinite number of rematches. Laughing
