IECC does not allow the use of chess engines as many other sites do.
But the use of chess engines is not legitimate chess and has nothing to do with the real game.
IECC, created in 1995 with over 5,000 registered members, offers a chess site where members can play chess as an alternative to OTB chess with a rating system similar to that used by FIDE.
