    my question  is . the system is so fast  on blitz chess cant it know there was "abort " situation between 2 players  and prevent itself (for say 1min) from finding the same opp... again and again .

    i am in computers  and electronic engeneer and have some knowledge .

    just remember the aborting player  and  "jump" over the player in search mode.  


    On the one hand it sounds reasonable.  On the other hand it sound like a bit of computer work that would spread the pain of being aborted amoung more players...  Better to just do the work to either eliminate the abort option or count it the same as a resignation.


    I would go along with this if always got the game you clicked on. But when you try to click on a 5 minute time limit and instead get a game with a 2 hour time limit, you need the abort button.

    Why would you start a game if you know you're going to be interrupted and have to quit?  Or do pizzas just randomly show up at your house unexpectedly?

     damn, this must be a America thing "pizza guy at the door" all the time, definitely don't get them here.

    Does the pizza man only show up when its an opening you don't like facing?  Surprised

    Since I like to play 1.b3, I get aborted on in blitz quite a lot. This seems like an abuse of the feature in my opinion. Black should not have the option to abort merely because s/he doesn't like the first move played.

    well I start them expecting the pizza guy to arrive x amount of moves into the game...I don't mind losing 2-3 minutes on the clock.very low probability he'll show up at the very start of the game Tongue out

    but.....if he comes while I'm time trouble I'm toast Surprised

    Okay, I don't play live chess; I've just returned from a holiday; somehow or another whilst adjusting my settings I may have inadvertantly did something with the "Abort" mechanism, I don't know. I have sent four different messages to some person I don't know, moreover who I am not at all interested in playing of which none of them have been answered. Now, because of that game...meaning Chess.com gratefully stopped all my progress and games I am out an additional 4 days of vacation. SUGGESTIONS?

  • #211

    You mean you got kicked into vacation mode, since you are a paid member?  And you did not want that to happen, since you did not even want to play the game in the first place?

    Eliminate the Abort option.  I just had a game "aborted" after 13+ moves..  What is this???? No record of game  I was clearly going to win yet there was no rating change on my side.

    @rdzrdz: Abort option only works when there's no moves on the board (or Black doesn't reply to white's move) Your saying that: "The game aborted after 13+ moves" I think it's not going to happen because the abort option will change to resign button if you made that many moves.

    Maybe the game you played is unrated.

  • #215

    Nope rated. (On iPhone) Never change settings. And it was "aborted" per message on screen. Very wierd. Didnt have a "null" move error and I didnt loose connected as I was on wireless
