ChessJam is Growing up Fast! One Millionth Chess Move Made Today!
ChessJam is taking major strides in becoming one of the most popular live online chess games. Â In the few months since we first released ChessJam, there have been one million moves made (the 1 millionth move was made today by frestiano from Turkey) and our membership has increased substantially to the point where there is always a worthy opponent available for play.
With our latest updates, we’ve implemented a new messaging system that allows users to contact other ChessJammers, whether or not they are online, to set up a match or talk chess strategy. Â The Challenge Court, where players go to find opponents, was upgraded to show everyone who is online and what they are doing on ChessJam. Â A new ratings system was also put into effect to more accurately rate a playerâ€™s performance. Many new statistics, graphs, game replays, and tournament standings have also been added to the ever-growing STATS tab.
Last weekend we began our new weekly tournament, Survivor Sunday. Â Every Sunday from midnight to midnight EST, we open a room in the castle specifically for the tournament. Â ChessJam users are challenged to win as many games in that room as possible, while losing no more than two games. Â Our first Survivor Sunday tournament was very successful! Â Over 200 games were played by 100 participants and ChessJam user xicuc was crowned the champion with 16 wins.
We have live turbo tournaments and other features in development and can’t wait to launch them soon!Â Â For updates, join ChessJam on Facebook. Â If you enjoy the game you can share it by adding a cool ChessJam banner to your website!
