Please make it so players lose extra ELO if they quit
« on: 27 January 2021, 05:38:22 PM »
Frustratingly often, players quit during or towards the end of the game, eg if they don't like the cards or are losing. This has happened to me three times this afternoon. I'm assuming players don't lose any more ELO if they quit than if they lose so they have no incentive to stay. In three player games it's even more annoying as it turns into an unrated game for the remaining players, with Lord Rattington joining. Please could this be considered?#

This is already dpne for 3P games. The resigning player (even if they expilicitely resign) is considered to have lost 1.5 games vs. the other 2 remaining players.

For 2 player games, maybe this can be done too, in case the player was made to resign by their opponent due to the 4 minute timeout. I'll bring this up with the dev.

YES!  Especially if they time out before the game even begins; I can't begin to tell you how many times I've had people time out before the first hand (never even clicking Start Game) and then, after you force their resignation, they click that they're ready again!  This is absurd and should be punished in some form; if you don't want to play, then don't play.

Hol up.  Just to clarify...when a player resigns (regardless of when it is during a two player game) they should not lose any more ELO than if they lose the game in normal fashion (all provinces/colonies bought or 3 stacks empty).

Resignation is part of the players control. Conceding a match shouldn't be punished. There are a host of reasons for why someone resigns.

Now quitting and forcing a player to wait the 4 min to force resign them....yes, agreed, extra punishment of some kind should come of that.
