White player has left the game (Bug?)

Hello,

I am playing lichess on my android smartphone in German language.

I was playing one of my first games today, and after about 10 minutes, the game stopped, and stated that I had left the game and therefor lost - without actually doing so.

Any hints regarding this problem?

Cheers,
Andreas

Thanks for your reply.

Is it necessary to be always connected to the internet?

Since in this game each player had up to three hours total play, I assumed that it was like other longer term games, that I could go offline in-between and continue later?

Whenever you go off line a timer starts and conts down to a loss. You can lose connection for a short time, but if you fail to reconnect, then you get a loss.

You can't post in the forums yet. Play some games!
