please read chat of this game, it is a big map and multi day, game can go on for months, this is not fair. Players like this should be blacklisted by everyone.

Stalling isn't against official rules, as far as i'm aware (falls under player taking to long to make their turn, which is ignored).

I don't really consider what they're doing to be that bad. They're simply putting your team in its place for demanding they surrender before they were ready to. This is just a display of bad etiquette on both sides.

I don't know the game situation exactly, however, everyone knows commander games are the easiest to squander a lead in. Just ask Jackie Treehorn https://www.warzone.com/MultiPlayer?GameID=11959828

I agree with Xenophon, asking someone to surrender is not good. I've been asked to surrender before and I don't like it so I normally make the person play the game to the end and defeat me.
That being said, I do HATE it when someone starts stalling because they are losing.

You want to 'blacklist' us for not surrendering on turn 3? And I never stalled the entire match, btw, so screw you Elo!

Isn't this a simple matter of: you can never force someone to surrender? If they want to play a clearly lost game out to the end, so be it. It's not nice, it's not smart (waste of time for them as well), but it's their right. Right?

I had to play out a huge GoT map game using LD where moves took 20-30 mins b/c of the damn LD that was over at 35. It ended up going to a move #is the high 70's. Was boring as hell, and the result was clear from probably move 30, definitely from over 35. But so be it.

And it's really nothing especially applicable to Warzone. Same thing applies to chess, checkers, Stratego, Go, etc. And in each case, it's annoying, but it's still that person's right to be difficult and waste your time.

And maybe, just maybe, they don't even know they've totally lost already. That is a bit more applicable to Warzone than the other games as it has fog of war, so your opponent may not actually know they've lost. I've played games up to 15-20 moves, only the check the history and realize I lost at turn 3-5. But if it's all happening in the fog, people just may honestly not know.

@krinid: You mean like a shared one? Or are you just asking about the block list functionality? (https://www.warzone.com/wiki/Block_list) Warzone lets you block people but it doesn't really do anything meaningful unless they're actively stalking your or something. Doesn't work/hasn't worked as a mechanism to avoid toxic players.

It's one thing if your opponent asks you to surrender and you think you have a shot. But if you're actually losing and you keep playing just to annoy your opponent or out of a sense of wounded honor, wasting your own time as much as theirs, then you must be a child.

Totally agree with you Knyte ... it takes a pretty small person to do that, but there are a lot of small people in the world.

Especially when it takes just a little effort on their part and a lot of effort on your part. eg: large map with many bonuses & LD - if they only have a few bonuses (they're losing), their moves could take 1 min, but if you have 50+ bonuses (you're winning on a large map), it's dreadful!

But some get pleasure out of it. I've actually seen 1 guy surrender because of it despite having the largest income and best position in the game. He just wasn't willing to put in the time and effort to beat everyone, notably the players who were losing but just wouldn't resign.

Really though, this is more of a cautionary tale about using LD on huge maps than anything else, especially without airlift cards. Even when you don't have an annoying opponent like this, the moves can take >=30 mins once you have a huge number of bonuses and several fronts you need to send units to.

There is a lesson to be learnt from all of this. Never tell a noob with a chip on his shoulder that the game is over. Congrats to team X for producing the most toxic game chat I've seen in a while.

I like how none of the participants of that chat actually knows how "In 3 pieces for 20% of the number of territories held (minimum 1 piece per turn)" works.

Also just realized that I'm in this tournament that this game belongs to. So if this game is prolonged for "months", that inconveniences me! HEY!

Being facetious. A bit sarcastic.

This isn't actually a big map, and I highly doubt that even someone doing their worst would be able to stall it for months.

@Optimized - yea, it's clear they don't understand what "In 3 pieces for 20% of the number of territories held (minimum 1 piece per turn)" means. They came close at one point, but misunderstood it to mean the # of territories held individually or per team, instead of as it is which is the total held by all participants. (Which actually drives me nuts btw ... I'm okay with that being an option, I suppose, but bloody hell give me an option to actually make it by individual or by team. The way it is now benefits all playing parties when any participant starts taking territories. Essentially it's just a variation of using turn # - which again, I suppose is fine, but not as useful as it would be if it were by player/team).

The losing team has the right to decide when the game is over and it surrenders. If you don't like that, don't play MD. As other people indicated already, don't ask for surrenders if you want the game to end faster; that provokes many people to play slower.

My way to do this is to share my income in the chat. If you are always honest about that and it's clear that you don't lie, a huge income difference may convince your opponents.

For all things in life, always treat people how you want them to treat you, your mom, your kid, etc. Err on the side of polite.

It shouldn't come as a surprise that some people don't respond well to smack talk, especially through a messaging system.

People on this thread seem to be thinking that I was shitting on this guy for still playing, please read the chat, my first message was
"team A, game is over, please dont make it longer than it has to be"
I cannot think of a better way to put it.

Also @Nemo: That was a very dirty play on blacks part, definitely blacklist that guy

Thanks for the heads up about cookie, now I can add him to all my blacklists. :D

I don't know why JeyKey didn't count income though. If Cookie actually had the 68 he BS-ed about, he would be much bigger. Jeykey dominates the center so......
