Somehow I was in two real time games at once?

Post by sXePotter » 21 November 2020, 19:59

Not really sure where to put this, but I noticed I had a decrease in karma and wondered why. I discovered that I had somehow joined two real time games of connect 4 at the same time. One of these I played and won, the other I had no knowledge of and obviously timed out and was rightly skipped. I am more wondering how this is possible?!

This is the game I played. Note the time stamps start at 21/11/2020 18:09:04GMT and end at 18:11:14GMT.https://boardgamearena.com/gamereview?table=125795600

This is the game which I had no knowledge of. The time stamps start at 21/11/2020 18:09:02GMT (two seconds before the first game) and I was skipped at 18:11:15. https://boardgamearena.com/gamereview?table=125786989

This has happened to me although luckily I realized it. You can join more than one have at a time and then if they start, you're in multiple games. In order to play them, you have to leave one go back to the main page and play the other. It's not easy and I don't recommend it.

It's a known bug that unfortunately occurs all too frequently.
