Chess 2.0.: Say It Isn't So


#1

So, i was looking for latest results in the 2014 chess olympics and came across this…

EDIT: What Sirlin doesn’t tell you is that I createed Chess 2 back in 1995

You have one post to explain what this thread is about before I flag you.


#3

It’s something stupid about Sirlin being Sirlin and his age old quest to prove he’s a douche by reinventing Chess.

You’re not fooling me. :coffee:

That guy is so right with his approach the redesign chess, based on Street Fighter matches.
Whenver I watched a Cammy unblockableroflstomp the opponent, I thought… chess needs it. Absolutely.
And DLC costumes.

[e] Oh wow, I’m allowed visit that link one single time? Goodness gracious me!

Yes, chess does need more Claw loops.

#9

Y’all are seriously oblivious to what chess truly lacks to make it the perfect competitive game.

Gems.


#10

that and a good story


#11

Lets just hope they leave the glitch where if a white knight takes a black rook the game freezes.

White has frame advantage on the game’s start up :frowning:


#12

I hope the netcode gets fixed. Freakin’ Steamworks messed it up.


#13

I always had a problem when I captured a pawn. My knight would always fly off the board and never come back, thus bringing the game to a standstill.

If any piece needs a buff, it’s the pawn. That little fuck is weak shit. It can’t even catch shit in front of it. What kind of bullshit is that? It’s like you have a gun that you can only aim forward and the bullet only comes out of the sides. Ridiculous.


#18

Pawn is top tier if you use him right. He needs assists to win though. He can set up some mean unblockables and frame traps.


#19

Don’t forget about his level-up mechanic.


#20

I’m confused; his chess 2 has been around for a long time. What exactly was the point of this thread again?
