    Why has there never been an Official Codex Chess Tournament?

    How are Codex posters supposed to know which posters are worthy of brofists?

    Consider this post the
    official planning for the
    Official Codex Chess Tournament.

    We used to have chess matches here and there back in the day, but never a full-blown tournament; sounds like great fun.

    Only if we can use one of the chess platforms that animate everything with graphic violence.

    You are playing for the privilege to post. You don't play? You don't post!

    Forced grudge matches against users decided upon by popular vote.

    Let's take a look at that.

    I'm down. Though, I prefer games that allow some time to make a move.

    No RNG in chess. Thought it'd be right up your alley.

    I have only won one game of chess in my life. At the end of the game, my opponent let me actually have sex with her. It was great.

    I will gladly participate in this tournament.

    You are too stupid for the game of the kings. As if anyone of you even understands how the knight is moving.
    You should better stay with playing battleship.

    Everyone must make his or her own Chess bot, and they can duke it out – BattleBots style.

    Using bot programs works for "standard" (read: slow) chess games.

    The idea of an online chess tournament plays much faster.

    Watch this:

    Fortunately, anyone can enter the tournament. This arena format passes quickly in real time over a set duration of time.

    Imagine a 1v1 first person shooter death match tournament.

    Thankfully, the combat in chess is turn based.

    I may play if it is slow, not interested if it is fast.

    But Codexers are going to cheese, and then complain that the organizers should have done something about the cheesing, as if the cheesers were the victims.

    I also don't care if it's bullet, blitz, or some version of standard. Just no correspondence shit.
