An opponent offered a draw in our game. But the offer only arrived via email and I didn't see it until the game was over.
Yesterday I offered a draw in another game. After the game we exchanged messages and he too never saw my offer.
What is the recipient of a draw offer supposed to see, if anything? Surely there's more than an email message...
it's supposed to come up in the chat that you are offered a draw and a decline/accept funksjon
OK, thanks for the advice!
This just happened to me to, in an online game. The draw offers SHOULD BE MADE MUCH MORE VISIBLE!!
I agree; and, if you disable the chat, then you never see a draw offer.
I would like to see a box on top of the board, like the one that says "Do you really want to resign?"
Today, I made a draw offer, again unseen by my opponent. He simultaneously offered a draw, and his offer did show up at the top right of my game screen; I was able to accept. So transmission of draw offers remain problematic.
It seems you have to press the draw button to get the computer to recognize that you had three-fold repetition of the position, otherwise I think you could lose if you did not push "draw", correct me if I'm wrong.
Are draw offers used as a psychological tactic? You betcha! I don't think this is wrong unless the rules are being violated.
On the OPs original point that he was offered a draw which he did not see (via email). There could be a way to make the game a draw after the fact if there were an authority who could make that decision in behalf of the players. In the law, SCOTUS recently ruled that if a client had a lawyer who did not notify him of a plea deal, and he ended up being sentenced much longer than he would have, then a judge could reinstate the plea deal due to the lawyer's incompetance after the fact.
This is a stretch and chess is not law, but I could envision something similar happening if technology failed in a game where a draw that should have been seen and would have been taken, was not due to technical failure.
I finally did get a draw offer that appeared on my game board with options to accept or decline. But it has failed to appear at least twice.
