I recently played a game where i made my move and the clock changed over showing my opponents time running down after waiting for about 4 minutes his clock reached zero and it shows i lost on time. Can someone tell me why
I don't know why, but it has happened to me as well
It is a big pain in the butt, cost me a game
Just happened to me a few minutes ago. His / her clock was red, running down, I couldn't move. I had 3+ minutes left. I lost on time. What gives? He would have won anyway, he had a huge advantage.
Yes the same thing happened to me when I was in an overwhelmingly winning position. The opponents clock drained away without him moving and I was deemed to have lost. Computers!!!!
Now just an idea here, guessing... looking for a reason... could it be my computer just did not refresh? Only thing wrong with that theory is the clock was still ticking down.
It just happen to me, that's the second time and one his pawn was on top of mine and it stayed there and there was nothing I could do about that either.
I lose enough games without the computers help....lol
I think this is a connection problem...I'm not sure though.
join the club i have to surmise its a software cheat thing because its happened to me many times but never when im losing same with clock drain start 3 min game make a few moves then with only a few seconds gone by my clock will drain 1or 2 mins ive played a few 3 min games n had less than ten seconds in ten seconds software cheats
