VOG news

Postby Alex_Moiseyev on Thu Feb 02, 2006 9:26 am

Just couple important things:

1. Today VOG allows you unlimited time to stay as guest without changing nick. (you still can have a real nickname, not GUESTXXX). So - if you don't care of rating and usage of archive, this site (VOG) will be your best chocice for online play - due to the quality of interface and features.

2. Surprisingly I find out, that in addition to existing standard rooms - there is an ACF room out there, but I don't know - how it works. Perhaps ACF authorities (Alan Millhone / Richard Beckwith) clarify this for us.

3. My nickname on VOG is "alemo" . Mostly I am playing here between 9 & 12 PM.

[i](VOG) will be your best chocice for online play



Kurnik Checkers is becoming a lot more populated now. In the evenings there are 15-20 (all very good players) instead of the usual 3-4 LOL! Kurnik even added another checkers tournament on Friday's at 9PM EST from a player's request! This shows that the administrators actually listen to their user's requests and suggestions. So if Kurnik doesn't have something you want, just ask them...

And of course Kurnik is still free to get a ranking rating unlike VOG :)

My vote is for Kurnik for best choice for online play

Hi, Jake !

As we well learned in the past 10 years - the best site is one which collect the best and majority players ! :lol: Differences in feature sometimes don't play an important role, as we can see.

On Kurnik, I played often enough Brazilian and 10x10 and find out incidentally - many (not all, indeed) vistors are not very big fans of Russians :roll:

Anything else seems to be OK with Kurnik.

VOG administration also is very reponsive and friendly to user needs, and of course - VOG has 3 moves feature and many other nice things.

And VOG also have more protections from "cheating play" :evil:

Just an opinion.

I am expecting restoring draughts players interest to VOG. As more sites - as btter. At least we can play 3 moves games here.

Regards,

ALEMO
