Frustration - "booted" after some slack?: 7/19/2011 02:37:48

Played an unranked realtime game - http://warlight.net/MultiPlayer.aspx?GameID=1408780

Gave the other team the benefit of the doubt when one of their players left for ~40 minutes. Then, we ended up booted within the very short window of the game becoming available again - in fact, what seemed like less than 5 minutes, but could easily have been so.

Gave the other team the benefit of the doubt on this one, then ended up with a boot on my record because of it. Not cool.

Thanks, [ATH] Merino. =/

I've had this happen before.. part of the reason why people prefer games with people they know are reliable.. some people will scratch a win out no matter how dirty it is

Hm - does getting booted from an unranked game count against your boot list / count?

I can honestly say I don't know.. never bothered to test it..

this is one of the reasons I am so tempted to make an alt account to test things I am curious about, lol

I finally broke down and made an alt..

will test this in a couple minutes when the boot time goes down.. and will check the account later to make sure it updates

Played in 1 game (100% real-time)
This player has been booted 1 time (100%)

Practice games do count towards your boots

Auto-boot is your friend ...

If there were some kind of equivalent to vacations for real-time games, people would use auto-boot more often.

How about 5 Pee-breaks per day? The duration of these breaks should be either 5 minutes each, or the duration should be equal to the auto-boot time.

Just an idea.
