Bailing out while you are behind Wed, 09 October 2013 16:50
Hello fellow players, I'm sick and tired of players bailing out when they are behind. You then finish the game against the computer and sometimes you even loose when you well and truely winning. Also, some players agree to playing two games and then bailout after winning the first one after choosing the better side.

Sadly this happens and my advice is to add these players to your "Ignore" list so that you don't have to play them again. Good luck and keep enjoying the game against all of the honorable players out there. Smile

I haven't played M'44 Online intensely for some time. When I did back in Fall 2011, I had many who didn't play the rematch for various reasons. Sometimes I didn't, but I made a list to play the rematch some time in future.

My internet connection isn't too good, so I'll play a tournament game somewhere else. Even then, the DOW server or internet at McDonald's might knock you off.

If your opponent leaves on his turn, you probably want to pause because Johnny does some stupid moves, and who wants to continue after that?

I recommend if someone leaves on your turn that you stop playing, but don't pause it. Then open another M'44 Online to see if they are still there in the lobby, or have disconnected. You can communicate with them in the lobby to see what they want to do.

-If they say they don't want to play and start a game with someone else, then you know they're not reliable, and you can try to win against Johnny if you want.

>>>>>If you decide to continue against Johnny, you may want to finish if you're winning: it will be on his record, he'll be charged the G.I.s and he may lose an honor bar.

>>>>>If you're losing against the Johnny replacement, you may want to quit. Both of you will get your G.I.s back in 15 minutes and the game won't be on your record. Honor?

-If your opponent disconnected, came back to the lobby, and wants to continue, you can pause the game, which will restart once they re-enter the come back. If you don't pause the game, they may only be allowed to come back after Johnny plays the next Command Card on their turn, which is a drag to finish a game after Johnny made moves for you. So just hanging on your turn, might not let them back in.

Another solution is to avoid cadets and just play experienced people with over 100 battles to their name. They've paid for the service and they've earned a record and honor level they probably care about. I've only played a few experienced guys who've tried funny business:
-One quit when his starting cards weren't to his liking,
-One got mad he was losing and quit,
-One played the wrong card or made the wrong move and left.

How does one pause a game?

That's not correct. If you just wait, the game may close on you after 5 minutes. Your opponent often cannot get back in while it's your move.

If your opponent leaves, you can exit too. This puts the game in a Pause mode. A prompt comes up saying, you have a game in progress do you want to wait for your opponent? If you click Yes, you'll be in a Pause mode, until your opponent returns.

But there's no telling whether your opponent is coming back, or playing someone else, so you'll want to open another M'44 Online. That's what is happening when you see someone's name in the lobby twice; they have two open.
