    Don't be silly, this site is VERY good for all sorts of things Chess, but the blitz interface was the worst effort I have ever seen - almost unusable..

    i agree that the site is really good. i disagree that blitz was bad. although my computer is old, i was able to enjoy and actually advance through longer bilitz games.

    It probably doesn't happen much in blitz here. As it's unrated, what would be the point?

    If you play 3 min games and are in the 1500 crowd you can be pretty sure it is not a computer at the other end. I win a bunch of games there at that level. I usually clock in somewhere in the 15's.

    I miss RHP blitz DREADFULLY. I hope it is back up soon.

    Chess.com blitz is NOT a good replacement for RHP blitz.
    White is always on the bottom of the board on chess.com even if you are playing black and the board is jammed against the left side of the page.
    The graphics are worse and you can't choose who you are going to play like you could here. I like the waiting room here where you can see your opponents and their ratings.

    I feel like my playing strength drops 30% playing chess.com blitz due to the annoying page layout. Seriously. And you are limited in the time controls you can set there.

    I'm sorry, but none of your statements are true except for the 'jammed up against the left' one. I'm not trying to advertise for the competition; I'm just trying to get the facts straight.
