i presume there's folks on the fediverse into chess?
if anyone ever fancies a game on chess.com feel free to get in touch!
@hope thank you!!
@kiki_d oh yeah, that's the stuff. How do I find you?
@MoMartin great stuff!
i can send you a challenge link - do you have a profile set up already or no?
i tend to go for 14-day matches just so the game doesn't time out if my work schedule gets out of hand, but i typically would do at least a couple of moves a day, does that work for you?
@kiki_d sounds perfect. Also, I'm very bad at chess. Hope that's okay. I enjoy myself tremendously, I'm just not very good.
@MoMartin i'm the same - i don't really know much about strategy other than what i've learned by playing for a couple of years and getting beaten a lot 😁
@kiki_d Yes, I have a profile set up, my username is MoMartin
@kiki_d if you play on lichess i'm kiilas there :3
@kiilas i use chess.com, haven't used lichess before but always open to try new things!
i'm just looking at it now - can you explain the different time controls?
@kiki_d i play on lichess because chess.com is kinda corporate and didn't do proper moderation when i played there (i would get DMs with slurs and stuff all the time)
time controls are minutes per game plus seconds per move, so 3+2 is 3 minutes per game plus 2 second increment per move
if you want other time controls (or untimed or correspondence) it's under "custom"
@kiilas crap, i didn't know that was going on (though i am not at all surprised ffs)
cool well i'll set up a profile on lichess and we can get a game going - will have to do it later though as i'm just about to run out the door, but will let you know when i'm good to go!
@kiki_d alright :3
@kiilas right, i'm registered now as kiki_d - i usually play 14 days per turn as it gives space just in case my work schedule gets intense, so the game doesn't end up timing out, but i typically take at least a few moves per day during normal times
also happy to play casual or rated, depending on your preference
@kiki_d that's okay, feel free to poke me here if i haven't made a move for a day or so, i normally don't play correspondence so i may forget to log in >.>
No hate. No harassment. Use CWs.
