At chess.com the narrative grows. There’s a kind of chess Hunger Games going on between the bots.
There are now only two bots left. Mittens, the soul crushing kitten, whose ELO is listed as 1, but it really playing at about 3500 (at least), and M3GAN whose ELO was 1250.
Her avatar now has become rather more sinister, replete with tell-tale flames licking up in the black background. I played again M3GAN several times yesterday with time control and won earlier in the day. Then something happened. Her ELO went from 1250 to 3000, where it is as I write. It looks like Mittens is in the cross-hairs.
