The latest ChessCube news and information

The point is that videos can no longer be bought with cubits, only rented.
it's also impossible to convert cubits into crowns, or vice versa (to my knowledge)
so if you got crowns, you still need to buy cubits to play...
and if you have a motherload of cubits, you can't exchange them for crowns to buy something useful.
having a membership is fine, it's like belonging to a chessclub and I'm happy to pay like with any club that requires a fee. chesscube is better than the free sites in many regards, but the vagueness of the currency spoils it.
I'd rather have you price your memberships in dollars and scrap the virtual currency, especially since there are so few valuable things to buy with virtual currency (like backgrounds and different sets of pieces, oh my word... there's no real value in that for me)
also, if I buy 465 crowns, and pay 399 of them for the annual membership, then 66 of those go to waste. another reason why i dont like the virtual currency.
I think you need to reconsider your business offering, because it's confusing for the most part.
The money is not free so the need make money to pay that
I think it's better idea that just save the last 30 games to free users so the server will be more relaxed and not save those 6 millions games
No chat when watch a game
But that !@#* with the cubits is not going to work. I'll tell you what I do, I play down my account and when there are no cubits left I play at chess.com or other sites.
Sorry, but your plan is ill-conveived
