I say leave points and time handicap on Thuderhorse - it's more fun that way.

It's not just the poll that was the deciding factor in removing the points handicap. We actively monitor feedback sent to ChessCube Support, monitored external forums and blogs discussing said handicap, monitored online chat on ChessCube as well as followed YouTube comments on videos posted by KingsCrusher, Chess_Network etc, all of which contributed when making the decision on removing the handicap.

Thanks for your feedback..

2 points:
1 - Most tournaments have a minimum number of 10 players to get the tournament going - at that rate all players would be awarded with prizes just for pitching. Can you imagine how sandbaggers would love this? Getting prizes while losing intentionally? :D.
2 - We have rating range tournaments.. you for example are rated 2200, and you have a great chance of winning a tournament. A 1300 would have no chance against anyone in a tournament with an average of say 2000. You though would stand a great chance! Having said that.. the 1300 user might just get 1st, 2nd or 3rd in an under 1400 event.
3rd bonus point: Some players, like me, play in tournaments for fun and to improve their chess in general - not just for prizes :D.

Thanks for the feedback dangray..

its very sad ,when rules of daily warzone finals are finnaly clear ,crowns are not involved any more.. now its obvious what i always knew....that crowns were for cheaters(sandbaggers) who got finnaly banned and and crowns stayed at home.... all in all removing points handicup is a good idea.however i think that some crowns should be aworded for top ten players ,even smaller amounts of them.

Hi all, I would like to make a suggestion for the next update, I think there should be a tournament for the company cafes as well eg EpicChess, KingsCrusher, Piewalker etc and you can only enter them if you have there cafe in auto-join, what do you all think?
