    Hi agadmator, I would just like to make a #suggestion to improve future discussions regarding official FIDE announcements or commentaries about chess articles. You could consider (1) summarising the main points of the article/press release (2) and spend more time on giving your opinions and arguments (i.e. whether you agree/disagree with the article and why). The full text could be put as a link for viewers to read. I would like to hear your opinions and arguments when such controversies erupt. For the avoidance of doubt, this does and should not take away from your tremendous time, effort, and sacrifice required when you produce these high quality chess videos. Thank you very much for all your work. I really appreciate you and your contributions to GRlifes.

    I'm no tech wizard, but I understand that there are other networks available other than the world wide web. You probably have to pay real money to use them or set them up, but they afford a greater degree of reliability. I'm pretty sure that banks and military don't do their transactions between each other on the public internet, no?

    Chess.com has recently (or some time I guess) been having server issues and many complaints. The players are usually blamed for bad connection, which is plausible; however I think there's more to this. The problem, I think, is that this real issue is being side-stepped by blaming "global internet outages". Whatever that means. No. The problem is the server or cloudflare(?) and it would simply be embarrassing for a business to admit the insufficiency of what they rely on. This whole thing is suspicious

  9. Damballa

    DamballaΠριν μήνα

    Cloudflare was mentioned in the statement. It is a CDN network. A CDN network is a network of web servers, serving you the website & assets from a location that's geologically closer to where you currently are on the planet. For example, you in Croatia will probably get served from the Cloudflare CDN that's somewhere in or near Croatia. Similarly Vidit would be served the files and assets by Cloudflare servers that's somewhere in India. It is possible that, let's say, the zoom meeting or other things that don't use Cloudflare continue working, but the Cloudflare server close to India bombed (and therefore all the apps that are using Cloudflare CDN, such as Chess.com) - causing this unfortunate incident. This is what I could deduce from the official statement.

And a girl. And two other dudes. So u can film a session of 2.5 hours. Then cut it up into 5 pieces and post one everyday. So we get showered with videos. Then evaluate the project to see if ppl liked it. I think it's hilarious. Anyway thanks! And long live the communist party.

    We were winning Russia drew by luck coz - both our winning game's server crashed - during our turn - and during low time. Some random points - Russia is famous for hackers - Most people have little to do during lockdown times - The games crashed at critical moments (i.e. it was sure the players would think for some time), ideal time to start the process, so that it crashes within that turn I am just too random just like this outage

    It was *not* a global internet outage but it's chess.com cloud servers and CDN (cached server) which got crashed due to high load. The behaviour of 30-seconds outage clearly shows that chess.com had spin-up more cloud instances after their usual threshold limit has reached which takes usually 30 to 60 seconds grace period. I feel sorry for the players who have worked throughout the year for this championship and led to this situation. Players were paying the price of someone who has not done their job right!

    I haven't done any wireshark packet captures but it would be interersting to see if connections are based on TCP,. or Google's newer QUIC protocol, which creates a reliable connection over the more flexible UDP base. It allows for source IPs to change which would mean no dissconnections if failing over to a backup Internet. I think for-sure that chess.com should be using QUIC. Some details on QUIC... ironically by Cloudfare... blog.cloudflare.com/the-road-to-quic/

    Chess dot com is honestly only good for correspondence games. And they seem to have more chess 960 players for some reason. Apart from that... Lichess has a massive advantage on the interface, connectivity and user friendliness especially for tournaments. The hardest part to understand about this whole affair is why FIDE would choose to work with an inferior service provider for such an important event in the first place. I mean we're all playing in tournaments on Lichess all the time, they're so easy to organize and generally run without a hitch. So what's the idea here? FIDE missed the winning move for sure.

    If a Zoom connection was still working, but the connection to the chess.com server dropped, then one of two possibilities would exist: 1) chess.com site was specifically having trouble. 2) The routing from their local site to chess.com was congested, but the presumed congestion for the Zoom calls was ameliorated through the presence of the Zoom call itself. The Zoom call would go through different paths: you connect to a zoom server. In any case, it is unlikely that they had specific troubles at their end, but did have troubles with the path from their location to the chess.com site.

    think disconnections shoukd be treated this way: The board at the mkoment of disconnection is quickly analized by an agreed engine, and if the position is superior for one player by ba defined and agreed margin, like for example +2... then that player wins, If previous condition is not reached, then its a draw, and other criteria should see if there's a need for a match to be played again. Simple.

    It is possible to lose connection to just one site and still have it be your internet's fault (opposed to Chess.com or their servers' fault). As an extreme but very real example if Zoom and Chess.com take different physical routes and an underground cable is cut along the Chess.com route it would take some time for an alternate route to be propagated and allow the player to reconnect. This example of a physical break would likely affect people in a couple hundred km radius at the same time and affect many sites though it'd be difficult to tell which ones without an outage report from the backbone provider. An example that would affect only one player could be port exhaustion on their host machine. If Zoom had a connection which was alive but Chess.com was attempting a reconnect this could be an issue for several minutes. Other "local" issues could be a misbehaving firewall or NAT issues which may affect all residents in a large apartment complex, university, or place of business. While it's impossible for Chess.com to account for all possible issues experienced by a player they could simulate these scenarios in a lab environment and build redundancies or other mitigating techniques to improve the overall quality and experience of players across the globe. Players, whenever possible, should have a secondary connection such as a mobile hotspot on a phone and test the failover response of their system in the case of such an event. It's by no means a simple task but given the frequency of disconnects one I think all players and fans of chess would appreciate.

    Hi Antonio, you asked: "Is it possible to lose connection to the server, but for the Zoom call to not be interrupted, but it still be *your* fault and not the site's fault?" There's one important way that's possible: if the player isn't happy with his/her position and *deliberately* disconnects from the server (with hopes of being allowed a do-over). I'm not saying that's what happened here, but I think that's the reason why this rule has to be so strict. If they were to allow an exception to this rule, it would set a precedent that could be easily exploited by less-than-honest players who realize they are in a losing position.

    It is not possible to lose connection and still have the zoom call running how ever it is possible to that there was a temporary lag in the users internet connection which resulted in zoom utilising all the bandwidth that is left and leaving none for browser resulting in disconnect and there is also probability of chess.com’s servers failing in a particular region.. they’re more common than you think. It was a pretty tricky situation, and We should respect the way FIDE handled this.

    The best move was that vidit asked samay raina and sagar shah to announce on samay's stream that everyone who got logged out from chess.com should send proofs on email to FIDE. The proofs were overwhelming since there were hundreds of emails sent with proofs of indians getting disconnected on the chess.com server at the same time. Even sagar shah got disconnected live on stream at the same time as nihal, divya and humpy. So FIDE could not deny server problems in the face of hundreds of proofs, screenshots and log

    Video stream runs on UDP protocol & chess on TCP protocol. TCP Ensure delivery of data. where as UDP does not. So in case of TCP,quality of uplink & downlink both matters.

    I think it must be the bandwidth of the chess-server that hosted the event and not the internet and speed of internet. Here in South Africa we basically have one undersea cable from Europe (Rugby and Football) and one from India (Cricket) used for live sporting events that notoriously goes down on the internet rather than on satellite. Just lately one of the cables broke and the whole country battled, not just on sport.

    So just so I'm clear, decline the Armenian gambit, accept the Indian gambit.
