Won't let me move pieces to desired place

Matt_C123

Hi all,

in my last couple of games, I've had a problem moving pieces to their desired positions. Whenever I've tried to move a piece, it just goes back to its original position. Yes, the moves I'm making are completely legal. Why is this happening? How can I fix it?

I've lost 3 games because of this now

You are new.

What are you using? An app? A browser?

Perhaps it would help if we showed a position from your game and you said what you were trying to do:

I'm using google chrome.

For example, above, I'm trying to move the knight from b1 to c3, but it's not letting me

In the position you showed, black can't move his knight because his king is in check. The only legal moves are 1) to take the bishop with the rook or 2) to interpose the pawn on g6.

It's not much of a choice. Whatever he does, black would get checkmated on the next move.

I'm having the same problem (I've had it for ages) It's very very very annoying. I have to keep refreshing the page.

Please don't tell me it's my browser .. it does the same with Chrome, and Firefox.

This problem still exists.  Typically when I'm in a great position and about to win.   Just happened in my game with Mariadonzella a few minutes ago.  My ID is FrankJamesD

I suspect it is that some people have identified a glitch so they don't; lose.  Never happens when the other guy is winning.

Your opponent can't impact your connection or client. The clients never directly connect so your opponent doesn't have access to your connection details.

Hey, Frank, what move did that happen on and what were you trying to do? I want to see if I can explain what happened.

I've been having this same problem as well.  It worked fine before?

Whatever it was, it resolved quite a while ago.

Thanks!
