lichess studies are a fantastic and versatile tool. We made it easier to create a study from a game, or from the board editor:
It's now possible to either create a new study, or add a chapter to a study you own or contribute to. Right from the game analysis page, in two clicks.
Not everyone is a chess beast yet, so we recently introduced rating limited tournaments. Only players with a rating lower than 1600, or lower than 2000, may join them. Because these tournaments became very popular, we doubled their frequency. Now there is always an ongoing tournament that you may join - and win!
Furthermore, we improved the tournament matching algorithms to ensure faster and fairer pairings. The lobby pools also benefit from this update.
This feature has been long requested, and is now available, thanks to the new database servers.
You can now select "Date" as the insights dimension, and also filter the results by date.
This post is getting way too long, so let's only mention a few more upgrades.
Because we believe chess deserves that. And more. We'll update you shortly!
May your pieces always find their way to your opponent's king.
