Quitting games at last minute to protect ranking? Tue, 22 February 2005 15:52
Relatively new here and trying to make my book of 20 games so that I can have a score and a ranking. The problem is, in three of my last four games, the person who was losing left the game with perhaps a minute left before the final sale. At first I thought it was just bad luck -- phone lines do tend to drop at the worst of times. But when it happened the third time I started to become a bit frustrated, and a bit more suspect. Is anyone else seeing this, or have I just hit a bad patch? On that note -- is your score changed in any way if you quit a game part way through? It is really making for less than a stellar experience on the site.
My apologies if this topic has been covered already. Please forward me to the appropriate thread.

Sag.

This might not be intentional since we just discovered a bug in Ticket To Ride that can force you to quit if you decide to choose tickets (which is a thing a lots of player are doing at the end of the game).
This bug will be fixed in the next upcoming release.
The leaving players will have the rank they deserve depending on their relative scores at the end of the game, even if a robots finishes the game for them. (aka if the quitter was loosing there are a lot of chance he'll loose the game).

After a few more game sessions I would like to mention at this point that my last four games have gone the distance, with all playing competetively to the end. Much enjoyment. I withdraw the thread!
