The game will take 10+ turns to finish, my least favorite type of game. Why waste over an hour of my life to try to win a game I would have won easily if I didn't play when fatigued and unable to be an accountant.
Simple counting would have let me know HHH's income and locations. The ability to think would have told me to transfer an army east (to prepare a blockade) and not west (to try to hold a bonus with 3). That transfer would have enabled one more army to be deployed in Greenland. That would have enabled me to hold Greenland long enough to take a second bonus. Game over. Simple accounting. I was too tired and didn't care. So I pay the price: an unecessary disadvantage.
SR is simple: if you are an accountant and have an advantage, you shouldn't lose. If you are not an accountant, you can lose the advantage.
I am willing to pay my accounting fee. I offer the same deal to any player who has an advantage in any of my ladder games that I played while too tired to be an accountant. A surrender for a surrender. I don't have to waste my time. And I don't waste your time trying to claw back and win a long, drawn out game in which I wait 2-3 days to take a turn because I couldn't be bothered to put in time counting armies in a game I would have won if I had already put in the time. Then I give you coins that don't matter to me but might matter to you.
Don't we all benefit? My fatigue and resultant mental laziness rewards you with coins. And I don't have to feel forced to carry on playing a game I still could win and already should have won.https://youtu.be/GxCplsdCwxY
