For those of you using the new app I know many of you will recognize this problem. I just got a frustrating 12 point loss today from pressing the abort button one second after accidentally starting a game search. In my experience I can press that button 85-90% of the time and I'm okay. But I definitely have a few times where it just doesn't work, like today.

Does anyone know why it sometimes appears to not work, or when it does and when it doesn't? How much of the time does it actually work properly for you?

I play the vast majority of my games through the new app. For me I've never pressed the cancel button on the desktop where it failed to work. If you've had the same problem there, feel free to chime in. Just please specify if you are referring to the cancel or the abort button.

Thanks.

I can attest to the cancel button never losing me points on the web version. I cannot say that I remember a time I pressed abort on the new app and it did NOT lose me points. This was a big reason I stopped playing on the app two years ago. If you claim it only loses you points 10 to 15 percent of the time, they must have fixed something.

That is true about about couple years ago. It would but out in a bunch of ways. The graveyards would disappear if you sneezed. :)

Anyway, yes, so those things are far far better than then. It's just too bad they stopped working on the new app before fixing some things, like the language of the disconnect screen. It's surprisingly poor English.

It was a joke about bad English translations in games.

It should be "All your flag are belong to us." for Stratego.
