Disconnect Cheat Glitch

  • #41

    So many users with the same problem and your assumptions should fit all of them ?

    If someone can demonstrate to me that their opponent is winning lots of lost games due to timeout, then I'll take it seriously.


    Until then, I'll assume that you're a handful of paraniod people who are disonnecting through no fault of your own.

    Do you know what beats paranoia? Logic.


    Look at his previous games. Is there a pattern? y/n

    @shubhamsio, I just looked through your last 100 losses.  You have two games where you appear to have lost due to disconnections:




    That's 2% of your recent losses.  Since you lose about half of your games, that's about 1% of your games.  That's enough to be annoying and it would be good if we can find a way to improve that, but let's keep it in perspective: for every game you lose by disconnecting, you can play about 99 without a problem.


    I took a look at your opponents in those games.  In the first one, your game was the only recent one he appears to have won by his opponent disconnecting in a won position.  He has a couple games where he was winning and his opponent either disconnected or abandoned the game, but he was going to win those anyway.  Your opponent in the other game has only won two of his last 50 wins (so about 2 of his last 100 games) by an opponent disconnecting in a game where he was likely to lose.

    If they had a cheat like this, they would be doing it more often like that.  But such a cheat is technically extremely difficult, and impossible for the average hacker.


    What's far more likely is an internet glitch, a problem with the server, or a problem on your end.  A hack by your opponents just doesn't make sense.  Neither of your recent losses from disconnection are against people who have a pattern of winning that way, and there are other explanations that make much more sense.


    Now, that doesn't mean it's not a problem that would be good to improve, but it simply doesn't make sense for it to be your opponent hacking you.

    Here's a screen shot of 1 of my games I was referring to. You'll notice that the WiFi signal showing on "MY" phone at the very top (the 2nd symbol just right of my alarm) is full at all times. His time went 0:00 around 7:20pm but after it keep refreshing the count down I started doing screen shots since it happened earlier the same day and the first one I took is at 7:22pm in a 5 min game. Also note that the chess.com app also has "it's own WiFi signal" but that is and has been full bars as well.


    You'll see at 7:24 his disconnect stopped but he has no time left? Also another screenshot at 7:29 shows the disconnect countdown starting again and his clock is pinned at 0:00.

    This continued in an endless loop and it you notice at 7:32pm the "chess.com app would flash to red bars and go in and out" and then his clock would stop counting down and restart all over from 55 I believe. Get to 35, flash the WiFi and just trying to get me to leave it seems.

    Hope this helps as this is what I'm sure is happening to other members.nullnullnull
