1. The Chess Rule(Asian Rule)
Xiangqi.cc's games are judging by the Asian Rule. If you chase or checkmate perpetually your opponent's pieces or king for more than 7 times in a same progress, you violate the Asian Rule, and will be judged "lose".
If no piece is eaten(or called "captured")in more than 50 moves(both sides combined together are totally 100 moves), Xiangqi.cc's judging system will judge this game as a "draw" game automatically.
In certain tournament games, if the total game time over the limit of given time, such games will be judged as "draw" games.
Frequently disconneted players will be judged as "lose" if they disconnect without a reasonable amount
2. Game Time Rule(game time, move time, and the seconds reading time)
Game Time: The game time is the time given to players to finish the game. For example: 30 minutes game, the 30 minutes means the game time.
Move Time: The move time in xiangqi.cc are all set to 5 minutes. If a game time is less than 5 minutes, then this game time is the move time.
Seconds Reading Time: The seconds reading time is the time given to players to continue the games, while their game time is used up. In Xiangqi.cc, If the game time is N minutes, then the seconds reading time is N seconds. For example, a 30 minutes game has a 30 seconds time for reading. Respectively, 15 minutes game has 15 seconds.
Note that a disconnection will not affect the either game time, move time or seconds reading time. It is your responisibility to get back as soon as possible, otherwise system will judge it as a lose if move time is used up!!
