unsportsman like conduct
« on: 04 September 2017, 10:06:22 AM »
Was playing against someone who just disconnected right before I was about to win.

Didn't resign, just disconnected after typing "laaammme" into the chat and forced me to wait the 3 minutes before I could make him resign.
Anyone else ever have this experience?

A few times - although not with the ableist comment - which at least makes it easier to be sure of their intention...

My response to unpleasant players vanishing before the end of the match has been to wait for the force-resign, then use the blacklist function - the lightning icon next to the heart icon by their name post-game - so I don't need to play them again - and if enough people blacklist them this will lead to disqualification eventually - so if they play this way against many people they'll eventually be excluded for it...

But I also try to be sure that I'm not just misinterpreting genuine connection issues - and I'll be tolerant of those - but in your case the rude comment makes it pretty clear they weren't happy.

All the best
