I don't mind draws, but I hate boring draws. I hate when players play only to exchange all material and draw. Which is why I play unorthodox chess.

Yeah :D Era of romantic chess. Nowadays many draws are rather boring, because people are afraid to take risks.
Although there is this one player nowadays that plays very aggressive chess. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=51Q3e6E0Zfw

I think it's because of the influence of computer chess engines xD Wei Yi is a chess prodigy rite, I've never heard of Navara, maybe I have, but I can't recall..

Navara is a Czech grandmaster, he came to the same high school as I did.

Has Garry Kasparov given up on politics and gotten back to chess yet?

I'm not a personal friend of his. And in the end it's no special thing :) I saw a grandmaster and a WIM chill with friends in chess café several times. They're normal people like us :)
No, Kasparov still is not back. He only participated in one rapid tournament recently... And from time to time in casual events.

Ah you're rite, hehe. Ah I see. Who are your favourite chess players? Ive forgotten who I used to admire most. But I remember, before my youngest bro became a male chess superstar in my secondary school, I was the best male chess player in that school.

I still remember, when I got stuck at chess and felt like I couldn't improve further, I got a hold of a chess book called something like Bobby Fischer's Outrageous Chess Moves and that really boosted my performance by leaps and bounds.

Wei Yi is my favorite current chess player. His tactical prowess and aggressive style is worth respect. Then Carlsen with his positional playstyle is great from the exact opposite camp. Then there's this WIM who is really cute, but I forgot her name :(

Since you're my friend, and you like chess and game making and you encouraged me in playing guitar and songwriting, I shall play chess regularly again. I'll google up Wei Yi and Carlsen, Carlsen he's the no 1 chess player rite? Haha I've met a few cute female chess players in my state but couldn't bring myself to approach them xD

I'm not playing chess too regularly now, because I can't find the motivation to do it. Not even cute opponent hunting can motivate me :D

Wasting so much time trying to get a sprite behavior to work. I feel like banging my head against a wall.
Well... it’s been a real pain in the IRS today. :/
My kitty still young (3-4 months), I think I could teach her some funny tricks... like: "Play dead-ly good music for my games"
Here's a quality DPS class idea: The Beekeeper, who uses the "Bees!!" skill to attack and poison enemies.
Please don't create long, boring cutscenes in which characters do nothing but stand around talking.
