I can't join a tournament because I have timed out in too many recent games?

Another-Life

I tried to join the 1200-1400 3-day time control tourney and I got this message.

 

Really? Go through my recent games and see how many times I lost on time out. I only remember 2 timeouts (which where against a single player, simultaneous timeouts, I miscalculated the days I had left by one and times out on both at the same time)

According to your profile, you have a 13% timeout over the last 90 days. Finishing more games without timing out will lower it.

You are correct. I checked the full stats, it's just those 2 games out of 15 daily games I've played. Goddamnit ...

Cant join tournaments, because of a few time-out games. Come on - this must be some sort of joke? And I have been PAYING YEARS for my membership !!! 

So lets be reasonable and abolish this time-out rule once and for all for PREMIUM members!

 I agree with Vantaaman about different rules for Premium Members, even if I am not a Premium Member. It would also be useful to know what the goalposts are. When are you cut off?

That is correct. I do not care about your time outs.

Why did you bump this thread, dude? Are you serious?

I'm in the same boat. I enrolled to my first (ever) tournament without knowing when it starts. The fact it has no dates makes it pretty ambiguous tbh.

When the tournament started, I did not receive a notification from chess.com and as such, I was unaware it started. 

I think Chess.com should do more about this (for example send a notification when tournaments start) if it wants to increase engagement and repeat usage. It makes no sense to "punish" all users as some, may be genuine

When i was playing chess , this app froze (pretty sure its bug not connectivity issue) and i lost something like 4 matches by timeout. I hope i wont get banned too

I didnt play daily chess for last 90days and its said the same thing.

First of all, who cares about timeout?

I have only played 1 (non-finnished) game ever and the same thing is happening to me.
