If chess was invented today, the second Knight, Bishop and Rook would be locked behind a $10 DLC

If Chess was invented today it’d basically be checkers with loot boxes and an offensive screaming opponent who quits as soon as they start to lose.

En passant is dumbing the game down. Game was so much better back then.

Chess classic when?

The Queen used to be pants and was buffed on the say so of Queen Isabella of Spain.

Thank you! I made the meme lol

Queen: "NERF THIS"

I know this is a meme, but honestly got me thinking about how hard it will be for games or content in general to become these massive cultural touchstones like chess years from now. And how people like this meme shows, would want to change it instead of learning new strategies to take on the challenge.

(I know chess has changed a lot since it was invented, and that games today are much more complicated and thus require extensive tweaking, but I think the point still applies).

Chess is a board game so it’d come with crappy cardboard tokens or decent minis for an extra $50.

“Does anyone know a way to avoid the GRIND and level up my King quicker? Also a fast way to make more pawns, like a glitch or exploit? This shit is taking FOREVER!”

Actually they would only sell you 1/2 of the board. 1/4 of it would be broken, and we would be waiting for someone to come and fix it, while the other 1/4 was held back to resell to us as cosmetics or dlc.

Every now and then one of the pieces will fall through the board and disappear. Only to reappear out of the ceiling and crash land back on the board.

Queen is blocked what to do

ID: hmuqywf

Goes on

- hey I’m a noob at this game, I think I’ve got a glitch. Can’t move my Queen. Should I reset or what? Also the horse thing won’t go in a straight line! Man I can’t believe they released with so many BUGS!

The L is missing

Crap, I'm on a Chinese server again! The board is filled with red shirt no pants pawns and they are all moving in impossible directions.

If chess was invented today, the queen would still only be able to move 1 space diagonal.

I just preordered it for $59.99
