i was playing live chess a couple days agowith someone within 100 pts of my rating. he made the first move, i moved but my clock hadn't started and the game was frozen. i logged out & back in to no effect. i chatted the other player that the game was frozen. i waited a couple mniutes. i aborted and was penalized 50 points. i don't understand how that's justified in any scenario
this just happened to me.
though it was in middle of game. force-resign. wtf
Hi guys. Can you please let me know what browser and operating system you were using? Did you notice your opponent disconnect from the game at all? Do you use premoves?
Thanks for the information!
chrome windows. i disconnected not more than 30 seconds in a 15/10 game (wherein you have 5 minutes to reconnect) and it force-resigned me. i dont recall having a premove set when it happened.
While I have your attention, this happened a while ago. I made a move nd2# checkmate but right as i did that i was disconnecting/reconnecting. But I did not try to reconnect in a hurry, because i saw the all glorious # sign after my move confirming that it was a checkmate.
To my surprise, later that night i found that I never made that move.
I had to abandon two games in succession just now. The board froze after my opponent made his move, it refused to register my subsequent move ! anyone has some idea why such bizarre things happen ?
no premoves. the droid app

verizon motorola razr M
was on transit
only once as reported here so i was more concerned about the illogical point loss than the glitch altho i've had to cancel about a dozen live chess games for being frozen in one way or another. and at least half a dozen online games
the 2 times it happened with me was when I was using my desktop with a broadband connection. I was in Delhi. It hasn't happened much since. The Mobile route to Chess.com just does not work. I tried it with a tablet (Samsung, android based ).....and utterly failed...again and again.
it keeps happening
Hi guys- We are working to get this issue resolved. I'm sorry for any inconvenience in the meantime!
just lost another game on time today that i would have won (he didn't have any add'l pieces left)
