There is an option in the settings.

Love this setting, really makes teammates who want to surrender or go stick around instead and make those optimal moves

I think he means "teammates only" have to accept surrender, not everyone. I think this setting is annoying no matter what, but it would be already an improvement compared to the "everyone has to accept" surrender option. The less have to accept, the better

Oh, then yes, it would be less annoying.

There have been plenty of times where I've had a teammate surrender, I've said in team chat, not yet, wait a few turns, and then went on to win the game, so I do think making teammates accept surrenders has a purpose.

Making opponents accept surrenders though is just dumb, it allows griefing where your opponent can refuse to accept and then refuse to eliminate you, etc. making you choose between allowing them to make you keep playing, or being booted.

only teamates should have to accept the surrender, making other people accept is redundant

idk how fast that would made the game, I'll assume most of the wl players knows where the surrender button is or is not a jerk, but yes the opponent accept thing is unnecessary, cause all players with a correct mindset would accept it at the instance the notification pops up.

but it would also help with accepting surrender then opponent team goes AI and then having to accept the AI surrender as well. If only the teamates had to accept the surrender the games would end quicker

I don't think the speed difference is significant, but I'm for the change mostly to prevent griefing. I joked once on the 2v2 ladder too that I was tempted to stall my wins vs. low rated opponents, which wouldn't be possible with this change either.

If someone plays real time team games from mobile it will speed up the game as many a times the surrender pop up comes after a turn has ended.
If refreshed the button shows up near the player, but on smaller screens it is not possible to see.

Many may not play often on phone, but few may.

This option was made with FFAs in mind where a premature surrender can change the game balance. That was the intended purpose, so it's not completely stupid or redundant. How well that works is another story.

you have 3 surrender options settings:
-surrenders happen instanyly
-surrenders only need to be accepted by teamates
-surrender need to be accepted by everyone

I understand the FFA thing but in team games it is redundant

It's more obnoxious in FFA's IMO. It makes it so people have to play till elimination, which makes FFA's super long.

Making non-teammates accept is still useful in FFAs where players might be kingmakers, but this is a good idea for XvX matches.

Might not be the same for everyone, but if I surrender in a FFA and one guy won't accept, you can bet your ass if I don't just go awol and get booted, that I'm going to specifically attack the person refusing to accept my surrender to ensure they don't benefit from me being forced to continue playing.
