Server / Email - Time control

Hello to all.

Two players, formerly playing email chess at ICCF, recently lost a game on time with the 40 days + 40 days / 10 moves time control and mentioned the difference between FICGS and email chess ways to count time.

FICGS time controls are a bit harder because there's no classical email chess 'bonus day' added for each move due to time difference between countries. It seems to me that the difference is not so important with 40 days... On the contrary, the 30 days + 1 day / move scheme is quite hard ! ...

Now the question : Do you think a slower time control should be offered in future ?

Thanks for feedback. Thibault

I'm playing only Class G right now and I have two games left, but I never got to a tight spot in it when I had WC and Class G at the same time. In 12 games I have always been with less time than my opponents, so I guess that says something.

OTOH, 30 + 1day was really hard to manage, although none of my opponents ever got into time trouble (i.e. less than 10 days).

Please don't change the time control.

Hello Thibault.

I agree with Peter: no change of the timekeeping, please.
