I recently played a game where i made my move and the clock changed over showing my opponents time running down after waiting for about 4 minutes his clock reached zero and it shows i lost on time. Can someone tell me why
I don't know why, but it has happened to me as well
It is a big pain in the butt, cost me a game
Just happened to me a few minutes ago. His / her clock was red, running down, I couldn't move. I had 3+ minutes left. I lost on time. What gives? He would have won anyway, he had a huge advantage.
Yes the same thing happened to me when I was in an overwhelmingly winning position. The opponents clock drained away without him moving and I was deemed to have lost. Computers!!!!
Now just an idea here, guessing... looking for a reason... could it be my computer just did not refresh? Only thing wrong with that theory is the clock was still ticking down.
It just happen to me, that's the second time and one his pawn was on top of mine and it stayed there and there was nothing I could do about that either.
I lose enough games without the computers help....lol
I think this is a connection problem...I'm not sure though.
You probably lost on time because you are very adept at losing on time and the rest is a figment of your overwrought imagination
happened to me too
that happens to me in many a game, which is why I register any losses at all, markle.
this is due to connection.. the application doesn't delay the time when the connection is lost.. so when connected again... time will jump automatically using the server time
I have perfect connection always and this has also happened to me, it's just a glitch that will hopefully be fixed in due course.
it's happened to me as well
play in v3
that's got other bugs, like undoing your last move
v3 (and probably v2)does have problems with diconnects that are not reflected in the client. I've seen it on some of my games and I don't play a lot of Live.
But some disconnect issues can be mitigated by disabling Flash for the site and following the advice in the following.
