  1. I feel like the Luis Vitton Messi Ronaldo post was what kickstarted this wave of interest in the field of chess. At least in my case this is how it caught my attention.

  2. man, I get that it would be irresponsible of you to tear into Emil over his FIDE tweet, but god damn he deserves it for making such a dumb statement.

    Does he think that the FIDE name is some perpetual growth machine? Creating and hosting a tournament doesn't attract viewers out of thin air, literally any tournament or event organizer could tell you this. It's completely shameless from him to think people are dumb enough to believe that lie. Of course chesscom are also bluffing by attributing growth to that Magnus acquisition, but man I am shocked that more viewers/chess fans aren't ripping into Emil over that.

  3. Look at Disney plus launch. Unlimited money amd theor servers couldn't handle.launch day. A giant influx of new players is a double edged sword. Its great for chess and for the company but being online based it has to be able to manage that. Ideally we all want to play together but they may have to go the Mmorpg route and have to add servers for the players to choose to play on .
    The bad news is that costs money, the good news is you gotta spend money to make it. So it's a good problem to have and a sound investment for the company……. in this current market.
    What happens when all these new players Peter out and stop playing. A bunch of money invested in to new servers that start to lose players as rapidly as it gained them could really hurt a company
    Right now they are faces with what may be a fad influx in traffic and we all know fads come and go. So they need to proceed cautiously and not over extend financially to quickly. Slowly invest and fix the problem and see where things are actually headingn
    I think.the best answer is new servers that are shifted based on your ranking . Since players are separated from playing together based on rank anyways .
    My 2 cents

  4. Question: Why so many people are getting into chess right now?
    Answer: “ANDREW TATE”💀

  5. Let's be honest it's because of the Botez sisters and Anna. Amirite?

  6. When I’m telling u everyone at my school is playing this shi😭

  7. When I started chess I was at 200 elo now I am at 700 in 1 month thanks to Gotham

  9. Me and my friends were bored at lunch last month so we got out the chess board in the library now it’s just a daily thing we do now playing each other

  10. I’m in high school and people in my class are literally playing chess instead of listening to the teacher lol

  11. That activity in Egypt is me watching chess content while traveling 😁

  12. Another thing that I'd like to point out is Andrew T8. He's grown wild this whole time and he only plays chess.

  13. Imagine what would happen if Jenna will start playing chess😂

  14. am i the only one who came back to chess cuz of tate?

  15. Watching this 3 days later and it's at 2.65

  16. It’s really strange everybody in my school is playing chess on their phones even those guys who think it’s for nerd? And most girls are also playing it as well witch I have never seen before

  17. im watching this just because the error page displayed the link to this vid, you might see a huge surge of views later

  18. The only resone chess is populor is you you made me play chess gotham and i made 8 of my frinds to play chess

  19. for me the reason to come back to chess after about 10 yrs were the Hikaru clips from his streams.
    Now in Poland, in my class EVERYONE talks about chess. When I was on the Warsaw Metro, 3 out of 10 people were playing chess ATM.

  20. As someone who is studying the impact of digital media currently, I would greatly appreciate it if your content continues to remain primarily educational for those who enjoy it. (Although obviously entertainment value is important too). My greatest fear for this channel is for it to become too obsessed with influencer culture and manipulation.

  21. I blame you and Hikaru, keep up the good work!

  22. There are no many great teachers “like Me” I died bro, its true….

  23. Cloud computing = never fail being used for tens of years now

  24. also yooo subbed to samay raina i see sickkkkk

  25. I’ve been playing since I was seven. So I’m kinda good. And a ton of kids play chess now so I tutor them for money 🙂

  26. He's in wired's videos but he's not subbed to them ._.

  27. Number 1 reason chess is in the news now is the Niemann cheating scandal. I believe this is substantially driving increasing in chess popularity

  28. I think andrew tate played a big part in those numbers increasing

  29. Mittens definitely did it for me😆 i've had the app on my phone for over a year but kinda stopped playing until over the holidays I decided to try and teach my little sister chess, she obviously liked the Mittens bot and it seemed very weak. So you can imagine the frustration I had while trying to teach her and always getting destroyed by Mittens🤣 then I looked it up on youtube and got addicted to it again

  30. I think you mean you’re a work knight.

  31. He gained half a million subs in a month because of sacralise the rook

  32. I love how chess just suddenly became more relevant, even irl I see it or it gets talked about more often

  33. I don’t know about other schools but suddenly everyone started playing chess and they even made a chess club for its popularity at my school

  34. So this is why I'm suddenly better in chess: noob flow.

  35. Took only 1500 years for this game to blow up.

  36. It’s because students bored af at school

  37. I think Andrew Tate played a role in it too .

  38. In December I went to a chess club at my liberty and lost to an 8 year old so I started watching you videos and playing more chess
