http://warlight.net/MultiPlayer.aspx?GameID=1659366 (Generalfeldmarschall von Manstein) boots at the buzzer after i asked for just a few seconds because i was waiting on my team. then on top of that he dosent vote the game and just says. "rules are rules" this was before the game even started we hadnt picked yet and i ask for a few seconds. guess the 10 min thing that use to be accepted across the board is no longer honored. i see this happening more and more. btw. i know some disagree with me. but if you do agree. BL this guy

Simple solution... don't play 5m boot team games. At least not with strangers.

again, I know this is annoying. but this will keep happening if ppl take longer than boot time to take moves. just find a boot time you are comfortable and stick with it.

this is whats frustating tho. my average time is like 2 min. but i need a few extra because of slow to pick and respond teammates, so i ask dont boot for a few seconds. and the very second it hits 0 i get booted. he was sitting there refreshing trying as hard as he could to be unreasonable btw. i just wanted to post this for people that agree with me. i know some dont but i dont see how. i get the rules and i wouldnt change them but when somone asks for some time. i mean come on.....

post note* I dont have problems with strangers. only the most obnoxious players on the game do this. And not voting after words seals it for me. 300 games played he has no excuse to do either especially both.

Okay, firstly, why are you spamming the link to that game in game chat for all your other games? It is irrelevant, vindictive, petty, and childish. Show some restraint. Secondly, why don't I pull a little bit from this chat so that everyone can see you like you really are, a whiny crybaby female doggy.

12:44:09 Dionysus - brb
12:44:19 Dionysus - in 5 min. getting some food

Almost 10 minutes later...

12:53:29 GenField - play
12:53:40 GenField - or kick

12:53:55 Dionysus - no
12:54:01 Dionysus - im waiting on my team

12:54:50 is when you were booted.

So in a 5 min boot game, you got mad when they booted you after TEN MINUTES?!?! Really? Go cry somewhere else, because you'll get no sympathy here.

Why start a real time game then instantly ask to wait while you get food? Shouldn't you get food then join games? 5min boot is just too short so I'll stick with avoiding those games altogether.

man. now im subject to politcs. thanks for lying and the insults man.(face palm)ok i make a game. not start. leave for 4 min and then start it. i have prequisits for win % and boot % and games played. they almost always take more than 4 min. while we are picking he says play or kick. im waiting for my team as i dont know them or where there going. they pick with 20 seconds left and i get booted. again. its not a debate thread. there are those that agree with me and those that dont. i wouldnt make this thread based on lies and somone that dosent desearve the scruitiny. please stop the hate replies. i dont really care. go start a thread about whinny babies or somthing or whatever. but all this skewering and blah blah is not why i made this. i made it to share info and get a wealthy BL going.

I'm confused.

I just read the chat at the game you linked to, and it looks like rules here are for noobs only, and vets can break them?

Please explain. I like to play here, but am not certain about this.


And my second question :

Why is Italy a noob map? I checked, and cant find the distinction in choosing maps between noob and vet. I see Real maps, fantasy maps and the like, but not a way to choose noob maps.

Thank you.

Sometimes it takes a little while for games to fill up. It's the perfect time to make a sandwhich.

I thanked him because I appreciate it when people post these things. It saves me playing with somebody whose style clashes with mine. If somebody wants to play in that way, it's fine. I wont complain about it, but i'm going to Blacklist them and not play with them. It's what the Blacklisting function is for.

- Just to clarify, Sarge.

Some people (myself included) think that the manuel boot is designed for booting persistant slow-pokes, whilst the auto-boot is the deadline. I want to have a fair game, and not be booted because I slipped over the time limit by a minute. Obviously if I consistantly do my turns right up on the 5-minute mark, I should be booted, but doing it on the very first chance you get is seen as unsportsmanly like. Doing it on round one is even worse, because it completely ruins the game (team games, atleast), as the one side will now definately win.

@ sarge. its coutosey, thats all. and vets are the only ones that have it apparently. mutual respect and understanding. its viewed as abusing the system. and extreamly weak win you do it to win games. which i beleave was the case as this particular subject( of many) did. most people wait for 10 min in any situation other than someone taking 6 mins for the 6th time. because of computer/communication issues.

booting on the deploy stage w/o VTE is something that noobs do to pad their stats. Vets won't do it because most reliable vets play the game to have fun, and 3v2 = lame

You guys know theres this handy dandy little function known as the Banking Boot Times Box. You should really check it out sometime.

Seriously though, Don't join 5 minute games if you can't take your turn in 5 minutes! Yes, I try to wait 2 times the boot time before I boot someone, they may have connection problems or they reallllly had to go to the bathroom. But some people may play 5 minute boot games because they simply don't have time to wait for people who take longer.

**consider the math**
a 30 turn 5 minute boot game - 150 minutes
a 30 turn 5 minute boot game where you wait 6 minutes each time - 180 minutes

Thats half an hour they might not have!

you know the whole point of this was to try and get like 50 or so Bl on this dude. mabey i should lable the next thread. more clearly...... mabey " if you want to boot an asshole read and if not dont put your opinions because i dont care." Tho thats sounds very rude and is. i dont think theres any other way around having half of warlight tell me to take my turn faster. The whole thing is the context in which it was done and yes i over reacted. but hey. somtime you get pissed and do dumb stuff. Btw. if anyone else wants to debate about the rules im done. im well aware of them and like them actually. however booted on the distribution platform @ the buzzer when ive said. im waiting on myteamates is going to yeild the same reaction of BL and geting others to do it. I dont have the energy to explain/argue with every person that wants to post take your turn faster. so i hope you all see this. im done. you either agree and you BL the dude or you dont and thats ok too.

It's actually: 'You are a retard' not 'your a retard'.
So this guy waited for you 10 minutes, because you wanted to review your team mates picks. You should have played when you saw the time running out...
I see it as your fault, Dionysus, 10 minutes is a LONG time when you are eager to play.
And then you start insulting. Meh...

Yes, he did get booted after 5 minutes. But the 5 minutes before that he asked everyone to wait while he went to get some food. Even if he was only in the lobby, no proof either way, he should never have created a game and then assumed everyone needed to wait for him to finish eating, reviewing his teammate's picks, wiping the grease off his keyboard, etc...

I understand what you're saying, but he did get booted in the initial turn right at boot time, which is underhanded, if not against rules, and considering that I personally have been sitting waiting for members in a RT game for a half hour or more, it's not unrealistic to expect it to take a bit of time to collect players... nothing wrong was done by the word of the rules, just unsportsmanlike behavior, the leading cause of dissapointment in open seat games..

There's no need to get so worked up about it. Blacklisting is a personal thing. Some people want to boot at the 5-minute mark, others like not having to worry about slipping over the time-limit on occassion. The Blacklist keeps those players seperate. No need to get angry over it or try and discuss the pro's and cons of different playstyles.
