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?
