that might come as a shock to you.. surrender your games.
I'm not even going to bother crediting that with a response.
I think we need "Anger Management" tutorial as well.
Tristan, take a trip to Off-topic and find a suitable thread to express your concern with like-minded people. I do think occasional off-topic visitors have pretty good boot-rate. They should understand your concern much better than we do. "Birds of a feather flock together".
I was hardly angry. I apologise if it came across that way, but I was just irritated.
The surrender tutorial is relevant to the game, so it belongs in General and not Off-Topic.
I've never run into this magical surrender tutorial thing; it must only appear to people who boot frequently. Technically speaking, a notification might be more relevant than a tutorial. We ignore notifications all the time. So an annoyance like a tutorial is really the best Fizzer can probably do - people can already opt to exclude you from games.
Indeed, I can understand the significance of the surrender tutorial, I just don't feel it's necessary to put me through it every time I get booted from a game. If I've passed the tutorial once, then I already know how to surrender and don't need to be taught how over and over again. I just wish it would switch off after it's been completed once.
If you get booted because you don't have time for all the games you join, be careful which games you join. If you just stop taking your turns at a certain point, then surrender when that happens. If you're not going to surrender or take your turn, you have to put up with the surrender tutorial.
When I joined the game in question (several months ago), I had plenty of time. I couldn't guarantee that I'd always have the time for it, but it was a relatively safe bet. Like I said to Frozen Koala, I just wish it would switch off after it's been completed once.
I don't know about you guys, but there is nothing in this game that makes me more pissed off than people who regularly boot. Especially in real time games. Where I have to wait for the timer to run out to see if my opponent is going make their move or if they will boot. That is 5 minutes of my life, I will never get back, all because some self-centered player has decided to just leave the game without surrendering. Don't get me wrong, I understand that on occasion everyone will have an accidental boot due to an unfortunate or unforeseen event. But if you are getting booted 25% of the time, that is not an accident, that is a pattern. I especially hate it, when I immediately see that same booted player in the que for a new game.
Yeah, that's pretty much why I don't bother with RT games; I often wander off to make a cup of tea or something and completely forget that the timer is running D:
On the bright side, the boots have slimmed 40 games down to 5.
Thanks for the replies anyway, it's just a pity that I'm going to be subjected to a patronising tutorial every time I'm 5 minutes late in taking my turn D:<
