Under the Hood


We are on a mission to accelerate online speed chess as an esport.


As individuals, we all have different attitudes, beliefs, skills and values. As a team, we don't ask people to set aside their values; we share an ethos that guides our behaviour and decision-making. This ethos is best summed up by Mateship, an Australian and New Zealand cultural value that embodies equality, fairness, frankness, loyalty and friendship. As mates, we work as a global team united by Ekecheiria and Tolerance, representing our first principles.
