i was playing when the game got interrupted and 5 minutes later when the game was reinstated, chess.com said i abandoned the game which i did not and in fact was in a winning position
The server looks at inactivity. If it thinks a game has gone dormant it will cancel it. When you left for x amount of time it thought you abandonded the game.
Hi emcemitch, once a player disconnects from the live server, it gives them 2 minutes to reconnect. If they fail to do so the game will be deemed abandoned.
same thing happened to me ,i don't think there was inactivity for more than 5 sec
I have lost about 7 of previus 10 games i playd couse of this. sometimes just few second after i move. Its getting very annoyng!
"i abandoned the game which i did not and in fact was in a winning position"
I don't think that it's possible that you were in a winning position...This is Earth and not bizarro world...right?
