    It hasn't been upgraded in centuries

    It still has the same boring old graphics

    The developers have clearly forgotten about it.

    What on earth is the point in playing a game that stays the same?

    I'm talking about: CHESS.

    Oh, and nobody markets it any more. No dealer would stock it. The interface is out of date.

    I don't know if I can say this on these boards, but there's even a dupe in Chess.

    If you get one of your pawns to the 8th rank, it can turn into any piece you wish. Most often, of course, players will pick the Queen, and thus the power powerful piece on the board is effectively duped.

    Oh found a shop that sold me that ancient game. Damn thing is pretty expensive too if you want one with a fancier interface.

    Though it surely shows you should not mess with a classic working game concept.

    So why did we get aos again developers and can't you remove that crap ruleset?

    Queen is overpowered and needs a movement cap placed on it.

    Actually there only was one pawn - a white one. The other seven white ones are dupes, and the black ones were obtained through use of an illegal dye tub.

    The Tamer Knights horses are way over powered. They need to be nerfed.

    There is also a hack in the game, that when done properly, will allow you to move both your King, and one of the Castles in the back row, BOTH AT THE SAME TIME.......

    Good thing that I don't have to pay a monthly fee for it, plus I can find one in Walmart, Target, Toys'r'us, for free on internet, in most game stores in the entire friggin world and I only need one other person to enjoy it.

    I get it.. its supposed to be funny but the analogy is weaker than a hydrogen bond.

    If you shop around you can get upgraded versions with prettier tile sets.

    The game would be more popular if it didnt force you to group to play.

    I mean.. you can't go past the first move without a 2nd player.. it's rediculous!

    Bishops and Knights are Way overpowered and need to be nerfed! Their ability to move as far as they want in a single turn makes a mockery of the Knight classes L special move ability.

    And there is a major exploit that allows Veterans to checkmate newbies in 4 moves. Something has to be done about that!

    Hopefully one of these centuries, the devs will put an end to the debate about whether castling (aka Rui Lopez) is an exploit or simple game mechanics! ;)

    Although the isometric view is quite dated, I kinda like it. But the lag between two moves is unbearable.

    Naaa, I never used this "feature". I truly think it's the downfall of chess and the reason why so many players quitted.

    BTW, I returned to chess after awhile and I'm looking for a good template. I have a Ruy Lopez, Silican Defense and a Boden's Mate. What do you suggest?
