Opponent's timer runs out, I lose.

This has happened several times now, halfway through the game, my opponent seems to stop playing, so I'm stuck waiting for their timer to run down. Then their timer reaches 2 seconds to go or something, and they finally make a move, and it suddenly becomes my timer that is running out, and I forfeit on time, before I can do anything. Not sure whether this is a bug which people are exploiting, or there's some cheating involved, but it's frustrating to lose a game you won.

Re: Opponent's timer runs out, I lose.

yeah same happens to me also..it's happen due to high lag...the solution is try to play with low lag players or play long games(5,10 mins) (A)

At first I thougt that the problem was my connect , so I buy more, now I have 5mb. free everytime, later I tought that the problem was my computer, now I have one better.......but I have a lot of problems.......I don`t know why, i know that this problems don`t happend in other places, and I know tht is stupid to try contact whit CC to them explain to you, because nobody answer. I just think that them know the problems ( probably CC servers are litle, because I have more problems when is a big tourney and less problems when it is small).

Hi pabloasturias,

I have this problem in almost every games since about a month. I play only 25min+10s. And it's very frustrating when you lose like that after playing a long game. Plz fix it, I like playing here a lot :(

Hi Zigleez,

as i already said in above replys this problem is due to the serious/high lag of your connection or your oppenet's connection and ..solution try to play with a low lag player..between 100 to 250 ms lag is good lag..or play long games...

Q. how to see lag??
A.in your game window...If you look at the bar next to your name and your opponent’s name you can see lag positions...Green for good...Red for bad lag connection

Check your lag : viewtopic.php?f=12&t=1501&

For more detail about LAG check the below link..
