Idk what to say *face palm*

So they managed to fix the wins and losses numbers. You still can't see other players stats, there still isn't any updates in functionality. It looks worse than it did before! Terrible excuse for an update. There needs to be new tools like "take backs" (if your opponent accepts it), an annotated board, a log of the moves, making notes to self about potential moves, the starter of the game to pick the color they want to be, and to be able to flip the board. Most importantly it would be really cool to see the wins and losses of your opponent. If there were more tools like these it would be five stars for sure.

There should be a history of all the games you ever played.

It seems like we just can't win with this one. I don't think it's to much to ask to have a clean, pleasant, functional UI with more tools to enhance game play.
If you ask me a whole new redesign should be in the works because this is pathetic.

Less options?

I have been unable to change my profile pic w/o it crashing for months. So now that option is just deleted and we are stuck with whatever it was? Lame. Also agree with afore mentioned suggestions: take backs, switch colors, notes.

Thank you for fixing the crash issue
