Chess by post Review

I haven’t played this game in a while and I’m still losing, but I know the pieces. Although, I don’t know what I’m doing but I’m getting it a little bit. Chess by post is fun and a little boring but when you play for a while, it might see quite fun. in my opinion, I say that this game is fun and good for people to do when they may or may not be really ready to do the real thing. I give a four star rate for this game but right now I’m always losing and I mean every! But I just need to know and play the game more but I think it is a pretty good game. 👩🏽

Bad players

First off, I would like to say, I love this game around the site that you have provided. Thank you very much. On another note, there are players who are abusing The system. If they feel they can’t win the game. They will just let it go for the amount of move time. Vern just before their time runs out, some of them within minutes. They will make a move and start over again with one move. My suggestion is to cut the wait time to 36 hr. The 4 or 5 days is too long. If they can’t play in this amount of time, then they should not play. Thank you.

Wait times Ridiculous

This apps competitive ranking system is awesome and so is the ability to play with friends. The only big downside is the 5day move duration as people tend to abuse this feature. You'll have a nicely paced match with someone when all of a sudden they make a mistake and stop playing for 5days only to make a last minute move and try to wear you down like a troll. Move duration should be 24-36hrs max
