The Thin Red Line between Vote and No Vote: 10/13/2013 14:05:49

When do you consider it appropiate to vote?

I want to take this 5v5-game as an exemplary case:

http://warlight.net/MultiPlayer?GameID=4989566

In as short as possible, the situation unfolded as follows: After the picking phase, three players of Team B decided to surrender, arguing that one of their teammates picked - due to some miscommunication - bonus territories other players were already in. I (Team A) made the point that this was not intrinsically a reason to give up a game as there are still possibilities to work with this.
Anyways, the players of Team B did not change their minds, their surrenders were accepted. One player of Team B remained though and demanded to vote to end. His reasoning was that the picks of this one teammate deserved a vote. I disagreed with this opinion - i think that bad picking doesn't call for a vote immediately and that the surrenders were premature.

If you are interested, you can read the whole line of reasoning in the public chat of the game.

My 'voting-policy' is to vote when one or more players of the other team get booted early (from 8v8 player games this gets a bit blurry most of the time); i.e. before the game is clearly decided or when a player purposefully sabotages the other team before the game is decided.

What is yours? Would you have voted in this particular game?

Razeev, you were quite correct, no way were you suppossed to surrender in that position, their communication fault, if I was on that team I would have just surrendered and left like the others on that team did.

clearly a vote.
no fucking turn played.
what are you here for, collect auto wins or play a strategy game?

just because most of us wouldnt ask for a vote in a case like this, there is no reason to deny it and not move on.

So what if a turn was played? The team lost on picks and rage quit - they deserve a loss from that.

Sure Arun, that happens, but not every time. So punish those who had a player drop out because of a bad connection?

I'm with myhand on this one. Even if it's rage quit, BL'em and be done with it.

@Arun

Arun: What color does the sky appear?
myhand: It`s daytime, so it appears blue.
Arun: So what if it wouldnt be daytime? Your argument is invalid.

Exactly, just vote and get outta there. Waste of time, not a challenge and probably didn't learn anything. I don't know how you can enjoy that.

All you get is nice stats.....

There is never a good reason not to vote if someone is asking you to. A win is worth exactly nothing, so is a draw, they are equally desirable outcomes.
