    I go there and get zero players and if I offer a game, nothing happens. Is something wrong on my end? Anyone else see that?

    I just blundered a game away.

    If there's zero players,what do you expect will happen?

    It takes me a few seconds to let it load. Maybe you are just on a really slow computer.

    i'd expect a dancing unicorn to keep me entertained as i wait for someone else to join the waiting room to accept my game.

    Well, for me there was one change: Now when I go to blitz, I find myself listed as a player. Nobody else ATT however.

    I am also now back to being able to offer a game. Of course with no one else there.....

    uchess.com is very similar and generally has more players online. For some reason, I can never claim timeout wins, but the site is otherwise ok.

    A unicorn is a bit unreasonable.Too girlish anyway.

    But you can have a bear

    the problem with this site for blitz is that it isn't rated, and people don't try and win. I just played a game just now and the guy gave away a bishop and a queen inside of 10 moves, the other 3 games my opponent timed out.

    I have been to the blitz site when there were no players but if I offered a game, it would come up on the board, of course nobody there to take the game but it comes up.

    However, sometimes it shows zero players and if I offer a game it does not go to the main box. It just sits there looking smug.

    Had a look and played a couple of players then when I looked up their names they are p1200s with little or no games. Do some people sign up just to play blitz on here?

    I forgot about blitz, just logged in, left a game for 2 minutes, no takers, logged off. I guess Saturday morning isn't the time to find lots of players online
