Hey. I've gotten this issue a couple times now where I'll start a game in live chess, and one or more pieces will be displayed incorrectly. In the added screenshot, my opponent has bishops where his rooks are. They moved like rooks, acted like rooks, but displayed as bishops. More recently in a one minute game, ALL my pawns (as black) displayed as white rooks. Unfortunately, being a one minute game i didn't get a screenshot, but it sure made my brain hurt. In the recent (not shown) example, it also cost me the game, as I ended up running out of time when I should have won easily. null

Shouldn't this say, "forces White to trade ROOKS" since in the next page white takes the black rook?null

Consistently losing matches because of bug. I’ll go to chat or make a comment during match and when I return back to match in a few seconds, the match has ended and I show that Ive lost the match. This has happened numerous times and has seriously impacted my rank. Please fix this bug.

opponent has just king I have three pieces. opponent just waits until the time expires and the game is a draw!!!

In the beginner lesson of endgames pawn potential it’s suggesting the white pawn to become knight to give checkmate to black but before that knight can be taken by the black pawn it doesn’t seem correct

You timed out so you did not deserve to win.

How can you blame your opponent for your timing out?

opponent just waits until "his" time expires and the game is a draw!!!

Which game was it?

It really isn´t my game. The game was played by my chess tutor Carlos Burgos and BALADIN

there seems to be a computer code employed by players in the 3 minute blitz games that effectively freeze an opponents pieces.  It has been used against me at least a half dozen times in last 24 hours.  always while I have a good connection.  only while I am winning, and usually after as pivotal good move.  I have reported it now 4 times or so but it must be rampant - many different players have used this tactic.

 

makes me want to terminate my membership.  I was enjoying site so far.

 

in last example I had just promoted to a queen and game was just kings and queens.  I was far ahead in time, then my pieces froze.  connection good and I lost for time out.

I am new to this site, and in my third game at 45/45, my phone went to a different chess.com page as I was trying to make a move. I then pressed the return button at the bottom of my phone, but that did not return me to the board. I got the chess.com home page, so I logged in again, only to find that I lost the game because I aborted it. I was in a clearly advantageous endgame position. I at first thought that the problem was with my phone, but now I'm not so sure. Could I have been attacked by some program?

In the future, I will play games only on my laptop.

This is what I believe is a help mate scenario. If white, who timed out, didn’t have its king trapped by its own pawn, black would not have sufficient check mating material with just a king plus knight. Therefore, the game would end in a draw “by timeout vs insufficient material”.

In this case white’s own pawn traps the white king creating the mate in 1 position. It must be that chess.com does not consider such help mate positions. It probably just looks at the material of black (in this case) to determine if it's sufficient to checkmate by itself. Since it's not, a draw by insufficient material was declared.
