Title: Player resigns right before losing, how does this effect ranks for both players
Post by: Seabird88 on 09 December 2019, 03:52:30 AM
This often happens when I play against a player that is ranked higher than myself.  Right before I win, they resign. How does this effect the ranks for both players for that game?  I usually blacklist these players.

For 2 player game it is the same as you winning normally.

I sometimes resign if the other player does not end the game as fast as possible.

Many players have zero interest in watching the opponent's "victory lap".

It has no effect on rating.

Except in 3-player games, where as I understand it, the resigning player is penalized more severely than for a normal loss to the same opponents, but the winner gets no benefit to his/her ranting.  I've had an opponent in 3-player resign during his extra turn from Fleet.  Absolutely maddening to not get the win.

It's petty when people do this. They certainly wouldn't want another player to do the same to them when they are winning and reaping the benefits of luck and good strategy. At least it's good to know it doesn't affect the rankings.

I don’t think it’s considered polite in multiplayer, but in 2-player dominion resigning is normal.  It’s occasionally considered rude NOT to resign from a hopeless position, even.

I am often on the other side of the fence, watching opponents who have lost miserably and know it spend ten minutes clicking buttons pointlessly, sometimes tabbing out while they do it. Knowing when to resign will make your online play experience much more fun. One of my biggest pet peeves is when players spend ages and then just buy the last province while behind anyway. If you're gonna take the time, at least try to win!
