A game withdrawal Tue, 10 June 2014 00:54
Well, I started to play a scenario (with the least favored side) and the score was tied 1 to 1.

I played my turn and then nada for more than a few mins. I asked if my opponent was still there and no reply. Then the bot took over and made 1 move for my opponent. He then rejoined the game and then said the bot made a stupid move for him so he was going to withdraw from the game. The bot then went on to win handily 4 to 1.

I cannot say that I was too thrilled that my opponent bailed out like that and his justification for doing so seemed a bit weak.

Not all combatants have a sense of honor or duty.

Huh, stupid, interesting choice. Played plenty against the 'Bot, questionable moves at times, aggressive almost always, plays to attack more often than not.

Strange, one stupid move and all the others after that must have been brilliant for the 'Bot to have won 4-1!

Guess when I make such a move I can take solace in the fact that I play like a 'Bot!

I received a PM from the player of this game and after his explaination I understood his withdrawal from the game. After taking the time to give me additional details and apologize he also hoped I would game with him the future. I told him I will gladly do so.

So, the matter is resolved and forgotten.

Rather than lose to the bot - and lose ranking points - you can also quit the game so no-one wins or loses.

It can be very frustrating losing to the Bot when one's opponent quits. I won't generally play to completion to lose against a Bot as I don't feel I should be penalized for my opponents exit.
