Player keeps proposing and cancelling undo
« on: 24 February 2021, 10:01:55 AM »
I know I can make someone resign, if they do nothing in 4minute

what if they do nothing, but keep proposing and cancelling undo? Can I make them resign after 4minute? Or if my opponents keep proposing undo, finally I decide to ignore his request. Can he make me resign after 4minute ignoring his undo request for 4minute? Or opposite? But it's his turn. What if he did nothing but undoing in the last stage of the game (to prevent a lose)? It's awful!

==============

Yesterday I have a game, it was OK
I am winning by a big margin, and I am going to clear the province in the next turn

suddenly my opponent goes super slow, maybe 3-4minutes for playing each copper
then, he crazily request for undo
at first I grant him, but then he make the same move, and ask for undo again
and eventually I decide to ignore him, but he withdraw his undo and propose again
I don't know if this count for (4minute per move), I don't know when can I make him resign

it costs a lot of time, I decide to check the game every 3minutes to see if he is finish
every time I am back, he is pending for an undo request
turn out his final turn costs 15+minutes
suddenly he stops that, and finish his turn. I assume he feels boring
then I proceed and clear the province pile

Does it mean a guy can propose and cancel undo at the final stage of game to prevent losing?

Yes, absolutely. A player requesting/cancelling an undo is not changing who has to do something in the game. If the 4 minutes are over, you can make them resign. Once you understand their undo request is just aimed at buying time, just ignore it.

That is called slow-playing (in contrast to taking your time to think for what you do, then acting quickly according to your decision, which is acceptable) and totally unacceptable and a bannable offense.

What you do in that case is to report that player using this Google form:

If there is some chat accompanying that action, copy it into the chat log part.

If players do that repeatedly, they will be banned.
