We just started a game and then all of a sudden it like skipped a move and his bishop hoped my horse and took and queen and then went back all in one move. Is this happening to other people?
It sometimes glitches for me. Did you try refreshing the page? Occasionally, one or a few of my pieces' pictures disappear and I have to refresh to page for them to reload.
I just see where he took your queen, retreated his bishop, and then you played Nf6
I think so.
The move list shows you played Bb4, then Bf8, and then back to Bb4. It almost looks like it somehow reset the bishop then played the move again for you on the next turn. Very strange.
I doubt that someone was hacking on chess.com especially because the point of doing it in this game really dosnt make alot of sense
Probably wasn't hacking ... if you want to cheat it'd be a lot easier just to play off an engine. But, it's possible he was playing around wishfully and then a bizarre glitch allowed him to do something he otherwise couldn't, and the computer reset the notation to make sense of it for itself ...
Very curious ... jumping bishops would certainly provide an advantage, wouldn't they!
What did your opponent say about it? Did the two of you discuss what happened?
no, no hackers making moves for you :) you lost your queen - there was no knight on f6.
Well, I see where the moves notated allow for fair taking of the Queen ... but as I was not present when the alleged incident happened, I'm inclined to believe Mr_ha. He describes it as happening all in a single move ... so if there was a glitch, perhaps the computer understood something was wrong and tried to notate what it thought had happened? I don't know.
I'd like to get jon11219's thoughts on the issue. What did it look like from his perspective? I don't think he was cheating/hacking, I suspect he was wishfully hovering his bishop over said Queen when "Poof" his wish came true!
Hacking doesn't make sense, and without substantial evidence to the contrary I don't like to suggest people are creating fictional problems ... therefore the most logical solution in my mind is a random computer glitch that tried to fix itself ...
Just to confirm, Mr_ha, you're not pulling our leg, are you? Just trying to see how many of us would take the time to check the notation, and how many of us would start speculating without looking at the obvious answer?
Although, to answer Mr_ha's original question, which I never actually addressed, 'Has it happened to other people?" My answer is No, never.
I hope my computer glitch theory isn't insulting to the chess.com staff ... I don't intend it as such. You guys are pretty awesome and for the most part everything works really good (sometimes really, really slow, but really good!).
it may have been a premove. but i am confident it wasn't a hacker.
Hmm ... I hadn't considered premoves ... that's an idea ...
Although, at this point I'm waiting for Mr_ha to confirm his claim. I don't think he would maliciously lie about it, but I can't help wondering if he isn't taking us on a practical joke ...
This is the game btw:
It is one of three things: a premove mistake, Mr_Ha trying to get attention, or Mr_Ha trying to get revenge for his bad moves.
what is a premove mistake, I've never heard of that ?
The other night I was playing a game and this guy hhm1965 or something like that and he made his king disappear hand to god it was ridiculous then I collected a couple of his pieces, the his invisible piece started takin my pieces out so I just started movin my pawn up the board as fast as possible, then he started doom the same, I told him to accept a draw or I'd report him then magically lol I resigned then I went back on the computer site(I was playing on my cell phone) and it showed him checkmating me after 13 moves, and i swear yo god that was NOT the game i played!!!! seriously that was one of the craziest things I've ever seen... True story!!!
Yes. this has happened in a few games i've played. Someone has a hack. It's like the other player gets an extra move out of nowhere.
show the games in question.
