    I don't know if this would be a good idea, but I've always liked how kirito and others couldn't see the other person's name, they had to be asked. Any chance this could somehow be added? I've always liked this feature. This could lead to an assassination skill of some kind, in the hardcore server. Did I explain myself correctly? :D

    I've played a 2v2 chess game with 2 boards. One person on the team plays as white and the other as black. When you take your opponent s piece you give it to ur team mate and instead of moving they can place the piece on the board.

    Nope, Each team plays one one side of the board. The moves are decided by the team. 5 minds VS 5 minds
