End of game (tournament maximum time reached) in final round

Post by eoc » 20 January 2019, 15:11

Hi,

on real-time table #47844594 we just ran into the game-end condition that is supposed to ensure the next round can start as scheduled:
Game abandoned
The game was abandoned automatically because the players did not manage to finish it before the next round of the tournament. The player with the most remaining thinking time wins the game.
However, this happened to be the final game of the elimination tournament, so I'm not sure why there's a need to prematurely eliminate the player with less remaining thinking-time in that case. There is no next round to wait for, and both players were still on positive remaining time.

I suggest disabling the next-round time checks for final rounds of real-time tournaments.

Hi,

We found the reason: we are adding +1 second to your clock each time you make a move on any game. This is a kind of "tolerance" considering it takes time to click + wait for the server response. However, in some game like Stone Age, there are a lot of moves to make and at the end it increases a lot your clock compared to the initial "7:30 per player".

It will be fixed this week (only for tournament games), so that it cannot happen again.
