Ok, so I'm playing a Ladder game against [REGL] John. He's still active, but he's not taking his turn. I'm winning that game, so I'm wondering if getting booted from a game doesn't hurt your rating as much as surrendering.

Nope. A boot is the same as losing any other way.

And I can now drag on our game into infinity, because you obviously have nothing better to do than spam the forums with BS.

you did the same thing to me, but you were winning, and then you got booted

Really, John? My suspicion might have been wrong, but do you really need to act like this?

I like to surrender when I'm good and ready, not when my opponent thinks I should.

@ john: you're an idiot, that was a legit question
@conquistadors: when you see me as your opponent just surrender immediately to save time and anguish (;

@conquistadors: The game is won. John is deliberately holding up the game because he's mad at me.

@Warlightvet to save you some time and worry (Because saving you worry is what I'm all about) I was going to put you on my blacklist, but you were already there. Probably for being a jerk or an awful player, didn't want to waste any more time trying to figure out why I already don't care for you.

Additionally, pull your head out of your keister before making an idiotic comment. you'll save yourself some anguish as well that way.

Sincerely, John - (Doing my job to make sure Everyone is HAPPY since 1921!)

John, he asked a legitimate question. He merely asked whether being booted does less damage then surrendering.

It looks like you were stalling - not that I mind (some people have real reasons for taking their time - myself included).

I have never seen Warlightvet be a jerk (and I play a lot of games with him) and I'm willing to bet he is a much better player then you (1v1 ladder stats support me here).

What about this thread made you so angry? Was it the face that Platypus publicised (or implied) you stalling? I can see no other reason. If it was the reason in brackets, then I can understand, but you gave a false reason, which I can't understand.

John`s speed the last 10 turns, it don`t look like he`s stalling the game. If he was he would not move anywhere near so fast he`s doing now. Because he at one turn (of the last 10) used almost 3 days is not a very good reason to make a tread like this (nor to complain in the chat either)

So based on that^^ I think he`ve a good reason the be a bit angry..
Also for us outsiders, who are not playing the game, it`s impossible to know what which`s true for sure, so I recommend to not Judge anyone based on guesses..

Which is why I suggested the second option.

We were about tied for a while until the last turn, where he took a while (it was 2 days 22 hours when I made the thread). Perhaps it was unfair to accuse him so early, especially when I was wrong, but still...

Dragging out a game is a strategic way to keep your ratings in the ladder. That's why he did it. He is trying to rake in as many wins as he can before surrendering to you

He met a hot girl and was too busy with another type of 1v1.

Perhaps I'm getting a bit tired of this template and don't enjoy playing it.

Perhaps I'm a bit annoyed playing with people that brag about how badly they're beating me when its actually quite a close match.

Perhaps I'm a bit annoyed with players directing me how to find the surrender button.

Perhaps I'm a bit annoyed with someone publicly accusing me of trying to game the system when in actuality, I just don't want to play that particular game.

Then you probably should quit the ladder, if you haven't already. That doesn't seem like a valid excuse to stall.

Perhaps I'm a bit annoyed playing with people that brag about how badly they're beating me when its actually quite a close match.

Um, it's really not THAT close. I have a decent army advantage over you, and I think I have an income advantage (if my calculations are correct, you should have about 20-22 income).

Perhaps I'm a bit annoyed with players directing me how to find the surrender button.

I was not being serious.

Fine. I was wrong. You aren't trying to game the system. But, I was asking a legit question. If it's possible for people to get booted during a lost game, that needs to be addressed.

That's just it Platypus, you're so wrong on all counts.

1) I'll play my turns w/in the boot time. That's all that's required.

2) You're math is way wrong, perhaps you should go back to 2nd grade to take Addition again.

3) Well, you still came off as a prick, and then posted in the forums about it, which does indicate you were serious.

4) ok, so maybe you had 1 legit question.

Fine. Take 2 days 23 hours for all your turns. Just don't expect me to ever want to play a game with you again.

You're [sic] math is way wrong, perhaps you should go back to 2nd grade to take Addition again.

OK, a lot of that is based on guesswork. But I did look back on the game, and it looks like you have more like 25. MAYBE 27.

I posted in the forums about you not taking your turns, not about you not surrendering. You can surrender whenever you want.

ok, so maybe you had 1 legit question.

Ah, so I WASN'T wrong on all counts.
