The main reason is that Ubi Soft has completely revamped their entire website
(it is now called and all online games can be accessed from there
(as well as directly from the program). There will also be discussion forums
(although a Chessmaster forum doesn't exist, yet) at the same site.

It is obviously in our best interests to keep these kinds of things under our
own control. It also tends to be cheaper, especially in the long run.
