The latest ChessCube news and information
@annecatherine: I don't know why some people just make more and more ids, I would just stick to one, and most people doesn't look at your stats, just look at your rating and playing when they face you. Sometimes you get all confident by playing a 1500 when you are a 2200+ and then see that they beat you. It is strange then you realize that it was a provie id, some doesn't look at these things and just call you sandbagger. Sorry for impoliteness annecatherine, but it happens.
I like cubits. And I don't like to play with a 2000-score-player because I cannot win, that's impossible. In the tournaments I don't play with them and my score go down always.
I like too when I play with a 1300-guy and win 40 cubits in a rated game. And I always choose the players that I want to play or not.
My score is not big, but I'm not really good. I think all is ok.
Am I a sandbagger?
I ask because I don't know, really. If I am, I can stop.
i dont think that will be sandbagging,as the definition says,people who simply lose without a reason.like resign after the first move or some thing like that.
Can i resign the game ? I get no points frome a 1200 player. Its not interesting for me to wait. I am Sandbagger if resign ? What to do, especially in 2 min Warzones ?
Also, on tournaments with bigger prizes, same XP and a established tournament rating would help a lot to stop real sandbaggers.

I wasn't aware about sandbagging is such a big no-no in chess cube and I have been practising the same thinking its a form of legal chess where you play judiciously to win tournaments.Today I have been banned for sandbagging. I learnt sandbagging after using chess cube for quite some time from other users thinking that it was normal practice. I believe users should be given a warning before any action is taken against them. Otherwise it gives no chance for them to be aware of this as sandbagging is very subjective and real tactical resigning can be misconstrued as sandbagging. Kindly do the needful for lifting the ban on very ignorant users about sandbagging like me who have not visited this forum. I have been ardently playing chess without other forms of cheating. So please revert the ban for ignorant people like me and punish after warning the same.
Every user is required to know this form of cheating (sandbagging) is not acceptable. I don't think you will accept to earn a prize in which you have earned unfairly; as well as not letting others have an equal chance in the competition. Logically, resigning on purpose does not need from me or any other user to tell you its wrong, the intentions from such act is very clear.
Sandbagging is taken very seriously by chesscube, lifting the ban off your account will be an unfair act from me towards others who will also claim they did not know.
