the time on live chess cant be right............
its ok if you get some extras , but mostly i played and the time is ticking out and then they still have up to 30 seconds..
it must be some wrong..otherwise i want to see the time that is correct....what you say.........??
I hope this article can help you understand the way the clock works in live chess:
Does this explain then why it seems I always have my last 4 seconds or so "stolen" from me by the clock? Is it that I have run out of time before the lag adjustment is put back onto my clock, so I lose on time? Or some lag accumulated during the game that finally catches up with me? It would seem like the former would be a more likely case.
I don't know how it is done, only that it Can be done, to eliminate this, as another blitz site I play never does it and also allows for Instantaneous moves by hovering the piece to the intended square then releasing the click as soon as opponent moves. The program they use against lag is called "Timeseal", and it seems to be a better way.
Comments welcome! I do like the blitz here except for that Time Steal, as it does not always happen but sometimes does, so I am never really sure of my time.
