Game aborted on move 53?

mattstoecker

Hey everyone-

I was in a game where I was low on time but winning on material. On move 53 the game was aborted without warning. What's going on? I've never seen this before.

I’ve just had a game I was about to win aborted, so if a player is sure to lose all they have to do is abort and have the game void? It doesn’t show I played the person....so my score stays as it was

I don't think you used to be able to do that.

I don't think the game is saved if it was aborted though.

Wasn't there a server restart around one and a half hours ago? In that situation, all games, regardless of how winning or losing you are, will be forfeited and that game will count as non-existent.

This was not a server restart. There was no warning of a server restart, and immediately after I was still online.

Were you playing in a tournament? Cause whenever the tournament clock reaches 0:00 sec, all the games being played within get aborted

Server may have crashed.

It happened to me a few times some years ago when there were some server problems. Never mind. This is an enjoyable site.

Was thinking there was a server restart because I could not go into Live five hours ago. Seems like it may have crashed.

There are other topics about it, so if there wasn't a restart notice it was either an emergency restart or crash.

Just happened to me after a rematch i was winning on move 13 and game aborted is this a new hack or server issues?

There is another site that allows games to be stored server side and continued later in such an event. Maybe they can consider implementing something similar here on Chess.com. It's good for longer league games, too just in case someone has a legitimate emergency and has to leave a game that's a good 2+ hours in.

Server down again.
