What's New in Version 2.6
I’m just back from the Play Live Challenge 2015 finals, which was held at the famous Marshall Chess Club in New York. So much history in that building... Beautiful... Anyways, a big thank you to all of the contestants I got to meet and play against. I hope you had a great time! For those who didn’t make it to the finals this first season, I hope you’ll join the second season. Which starts now! Take it away, team:
PLAY LIVE CHALLENGE, SEASON TWO. IT JUST GOT FREE, Y’ALL
Oh, man, are we excited! Time to bring out the confetti bazookas, guys! BOOM!
Like Magnus said, we’re starting the second season of the Play Live Challenge NOW — actually we started counting from May 1st. And this time we’ve made it COMPLETELY FREE! No need to upgrade, no interrupting ads. All you have to do is register and have fun playing chess!
And before you check your stats — don’t panic! Your points and stats have not been sucked into a black hole, only to disappear into some fifth dimension. They’re still listed under Play Live Challenge 2015 so you can look back and see how you did. Plus, now you can start with a blank slate, forget about the losses of yesteryear, and bathe in the glory of your new wins.
FASTER. BETTER. STRONGER.
For those of you using an iPhone 5S, iPad Air or iPad Mini 2 or newer, Play Magnus now supports 64-bit. What does that mean? Magnus now makes his moves up to 40% faster. He now moves faster than his own shadow playing at lower levels.
That’s it for today. Any tips on how to clean up confetti? Like, a LOT of confetti?
