Time out question

Post by blackdogs » Sat May 10, 2014 12:15 am

My opponent has no time left, well actually he has minus 1 day 22 hours 18mins, but the game is still active. So I'd assume if he makes a move now then the game would continue. So when is a time out actually decisive?

No, I believe the game is already over and it's just a server lag.

David, neither of us has ever timed out so we have never had the opportunity of attempting to move after our time has expired. At the moment I have a couple of games where opponents have exceeded their time but the games aren't terminated.

Server lag. Takes a day or two and the victory is yours

It usually times games out within 24hrs, so not sure what happened. If someone tries to move, the game times out immediately.

The game will time out and timed out player will lose.
