#6 I require game suggestions in Other Games

I posted this 3 weeks ago in another really old thread.

If anyone is still interested in a fantastic single player RPG game series that offers very little eye candy but tons of content to keep you busy for hours on end, you will not find a better deal than right now on Geneforge.

I have played and beaten 3 of these games, still working on the 4th and will likely replay some of them to try different characters/builds. Right now, Steam is offering %70 off these games and you can get the entire bundle of 5 full games for just 5.99. The Steam Sale is over, but its still just 19.95 for all 5 games.

Go to Steam Store and type in "Geneforge".

#23 2018 Chess World Championship in TF2 General Discussion
Spu
Black knight g3 check, white pawn forced to take knight at g3, black queen takes pawn at g3, and if I'm right then white's best move is to move queen to e5 which would trade white queen for black knight. the alternative moves for white in that situation result in mate for black or losing the queen without trading for a knight. You are right though, the better move is to move queen g3

I underlined in your post where I see something else

Once Black Knight to G3, White Pawn F2 Has to capture on G3
If you move Black Queen to G3 and Capture White Pawn, you get
White Pawn on G2 capture Black Knight on F3

At this point the Black Queen is alone and cannot force a checkmate. However, he can capture the 2 pawns on F3 and H3 as compensation for losing both of his Black Knights. White is not in the best situation because his King is very exposed but I would trade 3 pawns for 2 knights and take my chances as White.

glasswhat is the chess equivalent of an airshot

Most airshots attempted in TF2 are "wasted shots" on poor choices to aim at. There are almost always better or more dangerous players to target instead. Its sweet to hit an airshot and looks great but most times it means little or nothing in the grand scheme.

That said, the best chess equivalent I can think of is capturing a pawn simply because it is undefended. It looks great on the board and you think its an advantage. However, good players will use that "wasted move" to initiate attacks as compensation for the lost piece.

This for example

Going into a fragmovie

maybe I can't see it but I don't see that knight move being a good exchange or a forced mate for black. Infact, that gives White the advantage after both black Knights are captured

A better move is Black Queen to G3. Force the White F2 pawn to capture, then black Knight on H5 to G3. Mate

jelqing_jedidamn Carlsen blundered the game honestly. Caruana is quite lucky to come out of there with a draw, with white nonetheless. Caruana has competed with magnus before, but I don't think this is the year for magnus to be dethroned

All the top players compete here and there in various tournaments over the years but it is typically only 1 game at a time. The main difference here is that it is 12 matches (or more) against the same person. Kinda raises the bar and the excitement from game to game.

Not counting this 1st game draw, the head to head record between them in Classical Chess Only is:
33 Matches
10 Wins Carlsen
5 Wins Caruana
18 Draws

If you count other Match Sources like Blitz Chess, Rapid Chess, etc the record is
56 Matches
23 Wins Carlsen
11 Wins Caruana
22 Draws

#1 2018 Chess World Championship in TF2 General Discussion

For anyone interested, the 2018 World Chess Championship started today. Game 1 just ended in a draw about 15 mins ago. Link below for the full schedule of matches and replays.

https://www.chess.com/article/view/world-chess-championship-2018-carlsen-caruana#when

Should be an awesome Championship match, Magnus Carlsen vs Fabiano Caruana. He has a huge challenge ahead of him, Carlsen is a monster, but i'll be cheering. Go Fabi!

BUICK
Xensity - pre-esea CEVO P: enigma, fanom, moose, virulent, solidsnake, myself

Someone naming Virulent as their favorite team/teammate. That is screenshot material right there. :)

I love V to death but jesus christ he was a fucking difficult teammate to deal with, even back in our Quake days.

starsucker 4 of us have morning classes, 2 of us have jobs.

A person who doesn't put TF2 ahead of work and classes has some pretty fucked priorities IMO.
