59 seconds shows at the end of the game for both players

Is this s new trick by chess.com to hide the time-help they give to players with higher ratings?  What is going on?  there must be a serious issue that the game goes to that status and time is hidden from the players?  never seen anything like it unless the site is trying to hide something.

Haven't heard of this one. It sounds like a bug. Use the bug reporting tool if it happens again.

Be sure to get a screenshot next time.

/ Does it make any sense that they would start targeting you after 58,290 games?

This happened at least 10 times now.  It should be easily reproduced if you play about 10 - 15 games.

What is the link to bug reporting tool?

marmani59

I did go there, but that is very insufficient.  It doesn't allow me to post a pic.  I did open a bug but I couldn't put anything in it but text. I think chess.com programmers do this kind of stuff on purpose and the management over there has no power to create a direction.  it seems like the developers are running the site.

So the difference between time is not shown.  It seems like there is a big difference in time between the high score players and lower score players and that is being hidden so people wont complain.  You see now?

marmani59

I guess I was correct since this is still going on.  Did you do anything about it?

one question

: was this a bullet game? 1min, by any chance?

B1ZMARK

it was.

Ok, so I saw this before. You're in alternate analysis, a game continuation (it didn't happen in the game). You see, right now your move is after 34.Rxf7+ Kxf7. However, this didn't occur in-game, so Chess.com resets the timer for both players. If you moved the current move to like move 20 or something, it will show the proper time.

marmani59

No, It happened everywhere.  It happened in all windows and many many times.

My concern is that it's not a bug and it's a feature. wink.png

It means that chess.com programmers have been messing with the time settings.

 

B1ZMARK

No what I mean is that you're in analysis. When you're in analysis, there's no way the engine can know what time the players would be.

34...Kxf7 has does not exist in the MAIN GAME. 

marmani59

I know what you mean and that is not it.  It's live games and it has happened more than 30 times.  it especially happens when you are playing players that have really high score.  

As I said, I think it's a feature.

marmani59

As you can see the above pic I posted, it's a live game.

B1ZMARK

why don't you click on like move 23 or something, it will show the correct time. Anyways, the game had finished, so I don't see how the time is a big issue anyway.

YOU HAVE MADE MOVES AFTER THE GAME.

34...Kxf7 did NOT occur in-game. Therefore the engine displays the start time for both parties.
