i dont know how you all feel about it, but to allow yourself to be directly booted in a real-time game when you have known the boot time before you joined is really stupid. I almost think someone is afraid to read the settings.
It's perfectly reasonable to boot somebody who has gone over the limit. It's not the nicest thing to do, but it's what was agreed upon.
That's also why I never play real time games. I can't always control each and every 5 minute period for 1-4 hours at a time. Knowing that, I know that I would eventually be booted in a game I was winning, or a game that had barely started, or a 150 turn game that was completely awesome and at the most fun stage it could be at.
The simplist solutions are to only play with people you trust, or to just never play real time.
This discussion keeps coming back up and what it comes down to every time IMHO is this:
People who boot right at the limit are assholes, and you shouldn't play with them anymore. However, it's still your fault for going over the limit, not your opponents. If you couldn't make the time limit, you have nobody to blame but yourself, so complaining about it is useless and a waste of space and time. You also need to realize that it's just a game, so just relax a little bit, it's supposed to be fun. Just shrug off the stupid s*** and move on to the next game. Stop making excuses.
Matma Rex it has nothing to do with stupid it has to do with being new at this game, and like i said it wasnt more then a few seconds, it you take the time to look at my profile you will see that when i play real-time games i am always there and within the time limit. Anytime you want to play against me pleas feel free, but then be fair about booting and dont wait with your finger on the button, which is what the person must have been doing.
