I was playing the popular Puzzle Rush game on chess.com (3-minute version), and the game stopped when I missed the second puzzle (I had 8 seconds left on the clock). The statement is "Three strikes and you are out!", and it usually complies.

I must clarify that this is not the updated version of Puzzle Rush, which started at 9 a.m. Pacific time on Thursday, November 21.

Puzzle Rush stopped

It's the second time I’ve seen this happen. I am wondering if there is a special rule that I have missed, or if it is just a bug.

    No, you are probably talking about Puzzle Battle. This is a one-player game. – Daniel Alfredo Sottile Nov 21 '19 at 14:31

    You can also take too long on one individual puzzle, and get stopped that way. That might be it, but without having seen you play at the time, I cannot be sure that is what happened to you. If it is, please report back, and I will post this as an actual answer. – PhishMaster Nov 21 '19 at 16:05
  • Thank you @PhishMaster, that is interesting, but I don't really remember that. Do you have a source for that rule in Puzzle Rush? – Daniel Alfredo Sottile Nov 22 '19 at 13:52

    I do not know about the rules. I am just talking from experience. I have played, and pretty sure that I have run out of time on an individual problem....then again, I am older now, and I might just be remembering it wrong. :) – PhishMaster Nov 22 '19 at 14:27
  • @DanielAlfredoSottile I think it is the network lag to blame. I have experienced serious lag while playing puzzle rush. I don't think this lag is considered in time limit. – Cyriac Antony Feb 4 at 10:36
