Well.. At nickname on right has an green icon which means the connection during the games.

The other nickname on right sometimes is a Red Door.

During the games, Sometimes this Red Door becomes visible on my opponents.

This Red Icon during the games means what exactly?

Just means a lag? Or can be means also that the focus of the game? For example, if someone try use a Engine at beside, this red icon can indicating a possible cheating?

Green icon means the player is online.

Grey icon means the player is offline.

Red door during games means the player has left the game.

Red door + green icon means the player is online but has left the game.

Red door + grey icon means the player is offline and has left the game.

Hope this helps.
