in my assessment,
just dont use assistance when you are on the battlefield, if youve conditioned your mind like Anand i congratulate, it would be an honor to be confused with a machine
however, dont worry about chess is unique in that it gives a "human" imprint on the games
no matter how you do it is your identity
the art of chess is different than playing, only true meistros can pull that off,( fischer incidently believed that to be conniving when world title is at stake how dare you produce a game verbatim in order to stack the deck so to speak, as a team sport this is of course the way to go
but individual contest just be you its fine. however, there is no talk of that meaty part of chess, engine smedgin if that gives you the edge, by all means...
there was a time the clubs held honary nights where the games were reproduced
for the joy of its members, this is all about training.
but to beguile and act otherwise is just plain rude, i love chess it brings my emotions, the idea of having assured play meaning in competition this is obviously unfair, we love the idea, i like looking for those games
the problem is you fall into the wrong understanding of chess and what it means to play another soul this, of course, done without consent
you cant just play everyone like that we believe in the soul of chess.. simple as that
every program has its pale representation of a chess player, after all it is mere machine
as long as we are presented with the option we are fine with it, but that is consent.
otherwise i dont care what you do, just make sure i am aware,
as you "imprint" yourself over the board, its like seeing your fingerprint, a machine is identical to the last, it has an imprint the same as the program
i am not here to play something souless i really dont want to "feel " like i played this guy before, too many times, how many identites does this guy have
your like oh i remember the machine line.... that makes no sense when you play, for lets say there are 5 guys you play every day
in another time you are playing other people but in reality they are wearing disguises but you have that nagging feeling you played before
and you realize all those games were by the same guys
its the same thing the imprint is unmistakable for there is no soul
however, there is a market for such its just not my cup of tea
i "play" chess
again, talent is fine with me, its the lying i dont get
chess is funny, it is a game of survival, i just dont like being murdered, sandbagging multiple accounts just to harrass
just once you spring engine play on someone unsuspecting look at the harm youve done
its all about consent most people of whom want the notoriety of being a chess player, of whom are using, assistance
or otherwise misrepresenting the obvious use of an advantage is just a nasty thing to do.
so, if i wanna play "that guy"
