I already read a thread on this but couldn't find it.
Today when I was playing in live chess and after the game ended, my opponent offered me a rematch and I heard a 'pop' sound, which is heard when your opponent offers a rematch. Within a fraction of a second, a new game against the opponent started automatically. I did not want to play so I aborted the game, and I was warned by the server of aborting too many games and having to face the consequence of account being restricted if I don't follow the fair play rules. What is this?
Here's a link to the thread. :)
I already know that, my question is why does the rematch start automatically without my approval?
You've probably hit the "accept" link that has appeared under your cursor while intending to click something else, for example to join another game.
Clicking on "new game" instead of "accept (the rematch)" will sometimes accept the rematch anyway.
I'm pretty sure I didn't click on anything. It was within a split second.
i had that to, if you hit enter right after the game you offer a rematch/new game.
i didnt know that to.
ok thanks for informing. But I did not hit enter or press or click on anything. I just heard the sound for the rematch and the match started instantly.
Hope this helps.
If you do not want to be flagged for too many aborts, just do this when the automatic rematch pops up: ---Do not make a move. In two minutes the game will be automatically aborted and you won't be flagged for too many aborts.
thats even worse than aborting
it will still count as if you aborted the game, beacuase you did!
You waiteda and let the game abort so its aborted beacause of you. If you try it on live chess you will see im right, after the game gets aborted a message appears warning you for that.
just send a report of it to the help team (in live chess: upper right corner) if it happens again
I was talking about an automatic abort for not making the first move of a game which is entirely different from an automatic abort when a game is in progress.
Tell the staff here, no one else can actually fix this problem for you. Try re-creating the problem sometime, hopefully it was a temporary glitch? See this for some possible solutions (ie try using a different browser, etc)
So was I.
