The Future of Chess
Long Armageddon Time Control
White 60minutes to make 40 moves / Black 45minutes to make 40 moves
Then 30 minutes to complete the game
White, Black wins = Full win, 1 point
Black draws = half win 0.75 point
White draws = half lose, 0.25 point
above scoring to be applied to elo calculation
with London rules
And now i'm introducing 2 innovations. (I don't know yet if they are original ideas)
2. Piece promotion: N/B >R, R>Q when no more legal pawn moves on both sides.
3. Bare kings race to the 8th rank.
Combined all 3 and no more draws. And you keep lively tactics till the endgame. Opposite colored bishops will not be drawn. K+P v K, K+B v K, K+N v K, will not be drawn. Heck bare kings will not be drawn either.
Good rules are rules that do not essentially change the appearance of the game, so chess variants are out. Fischerrandom is out. Chess squares and pieces shouldn't be changed either, so Capablanca variant chess with the Chancellor piece is out.
