i advice chess.com to block those players who keep their opponents waiting unnecessarily

shubhnikk

i feel so pity for those opponents in daily chess, who lose & call you cheater but don't accept their loss, along with that they stop moving untill their time gets over & again move when their time is about to finish!

Kilbroney

its in the rules - there is nothing to prevent a player making his / her move in the last seconds of their allotted time whether it be 1, 2, 3 days per move etc

but they do it purposely to let their frustration out

As Kilbroney said, your opponent has the absolute right to take as much of his time as he wants.  When you sign up for a "daily" game, you should realize that it could take months to complete.  If your games are dragging on, then just start another one.  Some folks play almost as quickly as if it were a blitz game, some like to really take their time, and some slow down in a losing position.  Hard to know if they are trying to come up with a miraculous save or doing it to annoy you.  It is a shame though that some folks can't accept that they were outplayed and accuse you of cheating.

"And you do the same in all the games we have played !!"

 

Now in actual fact you and I have never played a single game.  But it is very easy to complain and the quote I use above is an example.

 

The rules on here are for a reason. If you start a 30 minute game you must be prepared for the opponent to take whatever time they like for their move.

 

Block them and move on if you feel they are not acting in a sportsmanlike way. But dont expect the site hosts to take action when there is no breach of any rule.

o breach of any rulat first don't you forget that chess.com also said do not make your opponent wait unnecessarily.. coincedence may appear 1 time, 2 times & may be even 3 times back to back but not every time right? i have played with many such players who slows down or keeps you waiting on their losing position just let their frustration out! chess.com must keep watch on such useless & shameless players who only play well when they're at their comfort position! P.S. where & when i did the same while we never have played together. are you okay mentally? i think you must visit a psychiatrist!

No. There is no rule that you must not make your opponent wait “unnecessarily”. You may take all the time allowed by your time control for whatever reason you choose. Nobody is going to get banned for playing within the rules. It’s your time, use it as you wish. If you find yourself playing somebody who irritates you for whatever reason, block them. You can also check how long a player’s average move time is and avoid people who you think take too long. It’s simply bad sportsmanship to tell somebody they must play a certain way just because you prefer it.

If you don't want to wait for your opponent, play blitz or bullet happy.png

Sometimes I can't make a move because I make breakfast, lunch and suppert for myself and my wife. . . She has dementia . . .

Sometimes I have to rest, I'm 81 years old. . . That's why I play only 3 day moves, group match games. . . There are many other players that play and their games take much longer than me . . . I'm not letting my frustrations out . . .

Sorry!

I just got told, a bit rudely I thought to 'hurry up and move will you' in a 15min daily.  I was surprised - I was just thinking - I wasn't trying to hold anything up - I won with 4/5 mins on the clock - eventually - with checkmate.  People are just a bit too quick to jump to conclusions perhaps about wht the other person is doing?
