People leaving games when about to lose!! Thu, 17 March 2005 19:15
I was playing a game with someone, about to prepare final sale with tons of the #1 Jewel, 2 rings, etc. basically getting ready to win. He never readied his sale, just sat there for all of 20 minutes, then eventually left.

How unsportsmanlike can you get? Is there no solution to this? No wonder the online numbers for this (very fun) game are so low.

For now I will make a list and never play with people like that again. Perhaps DOW will develop a bot soon?

Aha! Caught you dead to rights!
Kimber and I had someone beat with nothing left but the final sale -- someone sky high in the rankings, and they disappeared with nothing left to do but press the submit button. I realize the game hangs around for a bit so that it can be resumed, but I don't think that our opponent is going to bend over backwards to get in.
My question is this -- Will he get penalized and Kimber and I rewarded when that game times out? If not, this player's stratospheric ranking suddenly seems a bit less difficult to achieve.
In the meantime, Kimber and I can split the bragging rights on clobbering Mr 1688. He was 140 points off the lead and sweating at the time.

Ok, maybe I shouldn't whine so much. He's offered to finish the game. Still, it was frustrating as all get-out!

You can add Val_34 to your list of people who bow out before final sale. I had the cardinal and changed the fashion just before final sale. Val_34 then quickly left. When I went into the lobby... there they were. "nice game" was typed. I told Val_34 to resume game to finish. "Nice playing with you.. goodbye"

Poor sports shouldn't be able to play! I think that if you leave a game prior to final sale 3x, you should have points taken away from your ranking and you should be banned for a week!

It's definatly time for bots in Queen's Necklace!

I've never had this happen to me (yet) and even if im losing i don't leave and just accept i've lost.(of course winings quite gd too Smile). I think people that leave just befor last sale are sad and have no life.

this is the most worst thing in online games. i play carcasson at asobrain and many players when they r back at score leave the game let the bot do the job and just before the game ends they return to claim the win.
what can u say for those people!!!!

players quiting when someone is about to win or even in the middle of the game just takes all the fun out of a very fun game. I have started to make a list of players who are quiters and i try to spread that list around with other so that player kinda gets a punishment. I also agree with Baron_ in saying RPSousa is one of those quiters. This is a problem that needs to be addressed with either bots or somehow a punishment.
