Gentleman Wed, 27 November 2013 17:09
Today I was involved in a game where my opponent promised he would play a second game and so I started with the Axis (weaker side) at Pegasus. When it came time for a rematch he bolted with his quickly won victory in hand. I was incensed and said so in the chat box that his behavior was sad and unfair. Another player saw my comments and immediately offered to play me any game I chose.

His name is MajorFlanHigh [DG]
I know he was not looking for recognition, only a game. But his good spirit and sportsmanship made my day and I thought he should be commended.
So hip-hip-hooray Sir.

Not only that, I'm afraid it is an old subject, blasmaster.

Just add the player to the ignore list and keep playing and having fun Smile

Edit: of course, I missed the most important in my comment: praises to MajorFlanHigh!

He is singing the praises of the Good Major and doesn't mentioned the other player. I was online when he did make his comment in the chat box and a different name altogether.

Good to know there are sporting gents out there looking for a good flight!!

And anyone curious can check his record and see who he talking about

Some guy with 4 games under his belt who should not expected to know about or even follow the proclamations of the M44 honour society

Teach them right from the start! The player said he would play and he did not not if someone wants to look him up that is their business but he is praising another player so whether anyone else thinks it is productive or not productive is their own personal view.
Clorofila's advice to ignore this fellow in the future is one way to handle it.

Maybe it has already been mentioned before, but wouldn't it be a good idea for a new medal? For those guys who are brave enough to play a rematch when they are invited to. This could be awarded to the players who never refused a rematch for a certain period.

I like the idea!
