Blitz Chess Style Clock Idea - Thingy: 4/25/2016 10:20:27

So I am really into chess ( and yes I can garantue someone is going to go like 'nerd' or 'HA! Gaaaay') but I was wondering if it wouldn't be cool if there was a blitz chess style clock. If you don't know how it works: google it :P

JK JK

It works when the game starts you each player has 5 min ( you can adjust the time ) and however long player 1 takes, that's how long is deducted from his original 5 min. Say he takes 2 min for his first turn then another minute from his second, he would now be on 2 min left. So in theory you could play so well that you don't need to force your opponent into surrender or eliminate him, but make him think so hard and long ( that's what she said ) about his turn that his/her clock runs out.

please don't h8 m8, just appreci8

Well, you could set the bank time to 5 minutes or however much time you want, set the time players get per turn to 0, and don't bank boot times. This would make a game with the settings you described.

I'm not sure what I think of the idea, since generally turns take longer when you're doing better, so the system penalizes the winning player (and in particular would make delay moves difficult). I guess it would make you prioritize the moves you think are most important, though, so that's interesting.

5 Min specifically is probably too short for most templates but I've had similar thoughts, this would be pretty cool implemented correctly.

That being said, part of the point might be to rush the players.

As a rough guess, 15 min might be ok for a strategic 1v1, maybe. Would really need to test this and have input from better/a variety of players to see what would be good. Like Awesomeusername said above, the stronger player will probably need more time to make their moves, more noticeable the larger the map (Triskellion anyone?!?)

EDIT: messed up

EDIT 2: think I got it right this time. The only issue is that it needs a 1 minute minimum boot time, so you always have at least that. Or I'm just retarded.

Yeah, the chess clock is already implementable.
More interesting idea would be a hourglass.

It would, but it requires a one minute minimum for direct boot
