Moros, are you 12 years old? That chat is almost enough grounds for me to blacklist you. Did you actually believe that posting that game would make us think your opponent is the troll?

Well, how should I have responded then when the enemy suddenly demanded my surrender, said I was going to lose, called me noob, called me afraid, told me to shut up, bragged about his stats and thought they actually mattered, and called me noob again?

"Well, how should I have responded then when the enemy suddenly demanded my surrender"

Your opponent realized he was firmly in the ascendancy due to having a big income advantage - 5 times your income. So he offered you a good game. You saw that to mean he was demanding surrender - he probably felt that you could tell you had lost and would surrender so he offered a pre-emptive gg.

Not exactly "demanding your surrender"
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
"said I was going to lose"

You were going to lose - to his correct appraisal of the situation you resorted to childish insults and called him an idiot.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
"called me noob"

You had just called him an idiot

He should turn the other cheek whilst you insult him? Or You are entitled to throw insults around - but can't take it when they are sent back? I'm not sure which but neither paints you in good colours.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
"called me afraid"

I believe he asked you a question - the use of the question mark denotes this - is this you using a strawman?

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
"told me to shut up"

By this point I would have done the same
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
"bragged about his stats"

He didn't brag per say - but then we know you like to use the strawman. He said to check the profile before throwing that around. Which is a valid place to look for an indicator of noobery.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
"and thought they actually mattered"

So we'll say the don't and humour you - another indicator would be head to head skill.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
"and called me noob again?"

This "again" came after you had followed up your original accusation of noobness with this "summary total noob" I'll repost from the above it's also applicable here:

He should turn the other cheek whilst you insult him? Or You are entitled to throw insults around - but can't take it when they are sent back? I'm not sure which but neither paints you in good colours.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

On a side note this tickled me

"I don't want to play with you anymore, go die in the next round."

^^ This makes you sound immature and conjures images of someone taking their ball home because the're losing.

Okay, here's what I thought:
I was just playing, and I thought we were of equal strength. Then, I heard him say "gg", commonly used when someone's surrendering. I was confused, and I asked for conformation. He replied with "lol" (translated in my mind as "muhahaha"), and then told me I was going to die. How can you take that as a positive reply to my confusion? I didn't knew about his two other bonuses, so I thought he was just trolling. I told him why I was confused, and he just said "what??" and then again "lol". I became pissed and called him an idiot. Actually, idiot is no childish insult, it's closer to constructive criticism than you think. It basically means I said he, or his behaviour was not smart, referring to his lack of explanation and capitals. And, if idiot is childish, does that make "fuck u, mothafucking bitch" mature?
Then he said I would have to spy him, which was indeed a good option, had I not been lacking spy cards. Then, "ahah", and then "noob". I then said I blacklisted him and with good reasons. He then aggressively implied I was afraid (from my point of view), just because I had been busy chatting, and hadn't comitted my orders just yet.
Next turn, he told (in bad grammar) his income and his (accurate) guess of mine.
Then I gave him credit for that. He replied with telling me to shut up (!?). And I added that he wasn't behaving properly, and called him a noob for that.
Then, he said his profile was so good he was free to demand surrenders and lack grammatical and social skills (again, from my point of view).
I said him he would die in the next round, probably from meeting a more skilled player.
He said "bye bye". I said him that stats don't mean everything (just because someone has had the time to play 1300 games doesn't make him a nice person, right?). He then again called me a noob, and I decided it was enough and surrendered just to end the game.

I don't really want to comment on the rude behaviour on both sides here, but I did want to say that the initial "gg" is a pretty annoying thing to do when you think you've won. That's a pet peeve of mine. Until there is a surrender, "gg" is only for the one throwing in the towel to say.

I don't mind "I got ya now, bro" or "you've had it" or "Ha! good luck now - how ya gonna beat my income of 543?" or even a VERY polite "don't you think it's time to surrender?", but I hate it when the winning opponent tries to declare the game over for you. That's what the initial "gg" represents. It comes across as pompous and pretentious. Every player, and *particularly* new players, has the right to decide for themselves when the game is over.

Moros, you took "noob" as an insult and then claim "idiot" is constructive criticism? Hypocrisy, thy name is...

Also, stop commenting on his grammatical issues, spelling mistakes, etc. It detracts from whatever worthless argument you initially had. Many of the people here are not native English speakers, and arguing against grammar, rather than the content of the message, is plainly childish and idiotic (take it as constructive criticism bud).

Finally, I'm not sure if you posted this thread while the game was still going (that is, you couldn't see his income), or afterwards, but my guess is afterwards. And if I am correct, that means you could have looked at the history, saw you had absolutely no chance of winning, realized that the "troll" of the conversation was actually, in fact, you, and then you could have moved on with your life. Instead, you posted a flame-thread, targeting your opponent, when, in fact, your behavior is the questionable one.

Moros, at least you contributed to the community in one way: you've provided insight into the thought process that allows someone to see the world the way you do.

Listen to the neutral observers, Moros. You might learn something about yourself.

Trying to have a plain-text (no tone-of-voice, no intonation, no facial expression) discussion with someone whom you don't know, in a language which neither of you can call native, is difficult enough. Adding in the fact that apparently lots of people think one-liners without punctuation or capitalisation are perfectly legible (they themselves understand the intention, why wouldn't someone else, right??) and the fact that typing, especially when done properly, takes precious time away from the game... it's actually a small miracle people sometimes *do* understand each other.

|> Actually, idiot is no childish insult, it's closer to constructive criticism than you think. It basically means I said he, or his behaviour was not smart, referring to his lack of explanation and capitals.

By that logic, why shouldn't we interpret "gg" to mean "My dear opponent, it seems to me I have a distinct and crucial advantage over you in this game. Rest assured I will not consider it premature or a lack of fighting spirit on your part if you would opt to surrender at this stage."...?

Short version (of my opinion, these are not facts!):

- Neither of you are getting any medals for gentlemanly behaviour based on this game.
- It doesn't make sense to blame either one of you for the deterioration into a shouting-and-name-calling competition; that seems to have been caused by multiple misunderstandings on both sides.
- The reason everyone is shooting at you is not so much for your behaviour in-game, but mostly (exclusively??) for you posting this thread here.

Even shorter version (quite possibly a fact ;) ):
"Nothing here to see people, move along!"

Believe me...I have seen a lot of worse games than this one.
At least only the word "noob" was used and not any other swear words.
This is not really a big deal though...i think i'm going to go somewhere else now and sit and look at trees.
