Live Chess is much better now

    Thanks you chess/code folks for debugging the site and continuing to improve it.  Almost not disconnects,  many more players online at any time, and when there is a disconnect,  the clock seems to be suspended. Laughing

    Encouraging!  Thanks... I think I might switch to live for a while... if I can find the uninterrupted time...

    People intentionally disconnecting is an issue in all forms of online gaming.  Sadly there are too many people in the world who just can't cope with losing a game.

    does this mean "too many people can not use their brain to challenge with themselves" ?

    No, it means "too many people in the world can't cope with losing at a game" !

    I played a few games of live last night.  Was great, no d/c's at all and the clock didn't seem to favour my opponent as it used to... Very impressed tbh :)

    Hard to believe how well they worked out the bugs.  They were overwhelmed by the demand to play.

    Judging from the lack of complaints, I guess chess.com is doing just fine.  Cool

    For the first time in a month or two, I lost strictly on a disconnect. My clock went to zero.  We still need to fix that problem.  When there's a disconnect, the clock should be stopped until the reconnect, or the game should be cancelled.

    Otherwise, chess.com is getting better and better.

    I'm having problem playing live chess n the last 2 days.

    I get suddenly disconnected, my clock stil runs....I wait...no connection restored and best of all I loose points and a couple of nearly won games.

    So no connection and also loosing my games because of this I think it's too much.

    If you have connections problem at chess.com at least make sure I don't loose my matches and preserve my ratings....don't you think so?

    Can you please check this out?

    Thanks

    Live Chess 2.0 is pretty weak. Loads of bugs, loads of usability issues. Live Chess 1.0 was much better, imo.

    It looks like usage has more than doubled since the last big fix.  I can see why they have new problems to deal with.   Still flawed, but better than last year.   I am confident it will keep on getting better.

    Last week, suddenly a lot of mid-game disconnects and have lost a lot of points. 

    Seems like chess.com can stop the clock on a disconnect.  There ought to be a way to determine whether a player has signed off, lost his/her connection to the net or has been disconnected by the chess.com server.
