So I am in a ladder game with Alhazi, who is currently ranked number one for one vs one ladders. I happen to have this game won, it was clear since turn 3. We started the game 12 days ago. It is not just that he hasnt surrendered, but he is making only one move every 3 days, as if to delay the result of the game, while he is finishing all of his other ladder games quickly. This seems like an unsportmanlike tactic, and quite silly, as if the result of just one game will change much. Thoughts?
5 turns vs HotBeachBum 5 turns vs Krzychu 2 turns vs ACL Tears
What is the reason? Can't be rating (he should be playing 2 more games, trying to win those if so). Is he just trying to get to the highest level (and pass Pexito)? That would be a reason to hold on to the free points from the ladder.
Ah, sorry it took me 1 day to make my picks, Potato. I knew where he'd pick, because we sorta know each other, but I had a lot of doubts about his 3rd pick, so I decided to take a few moments before gaining the courage to make my picks, due to the risk involved. As for my gameplay speed, sorry 0 minutes is too long for you, if it was possible to play in negative time, I promise I'd be the first one to do it.
EDIT: @Chris Don't think so, he only stalled his surrender in our game for 2 days, or maybe he just took the time to think about the game, can't really say he stalled against me.
I personally am very slow on the 1v1 ladder and I know in some opponents will clam I'm stalling I don't want a Watchdog looking over everyone and reporting to the forums only spoiling little shits like Alhazi deserve this treatment..
In very extreme cases of stalling you can report players for 1v1 ladder stalling.. Has Alhazi crossed that line? It's a shame and shows his cowardness of not coming here and admitting he's stalling..
Was Alhazi stalling or not...well, does a month and a half sound too long for a ladder game? And after 4 turns, my income was 12, his was 5...that type of game...and he didnt surrender, until we finished, his income was 5, mine was 38...you be the judge, lol.
It seems that some players get to the top of the ladder and are quite errogant. I also beat Ragnarok recently when he was ranked number 1, and he played fast, but criticized my play via chat, and was quite nasty about losing...and I am in a game with USA Biches, have him beat as well, and he is quite slow...plays once every 2 or 3 days...
