What do you think about a better promoted surrender button? It's annoying how many players just leave the game instead of surrendering and let you wait about 5 or 10 minutes. Many of them may just not now how to surrender.

Some ideas about that:
  • make a clear visible "Surrender" button within the game
  • in the first multi-player game of each player, show a pop-up like "if you're going to lose, you can surrender pressing button xy".
  • when switching out of a real time game to another tab (my games or open games), show a short pop-up asking

    Do you want to surrender?
    [X] Don't ask again for this game
    [X] I know how to surrender. Don't ever ask me again.

Of course, the difficulty is to avoid precipitately surrenders. Many games aren't lost when you think that they are. So maybe a hint about that would be helpful. Also a hint, that even if you're about to lose, you're teammates may not! So don't surrender and play for your team!

Or am I the only one around here that sees improvement possibilities here?

problem solved
i agree with the popup the first multiplayer game you play, as for the rest it could lead to spams and mistakes (if it's too visible)

Yeah, the solution is to not play noobs, or billy walsh.

warflowvet, you're right, seat requirements are an option in many cases. But try to make up a Double Earth 4vs4 with requirements "multi-player games completed > 100, boot rate < 10%". Before the game is full, most users left the game lobby already. Idle times between 10 and 30 min are possible and - to be honest - the requirements aren't really hard. :-)

There wouldn't be pop-upspam, as there could be a checkbox within the pop-up that lets you disable the pop-up. :-)
