I honestly have no idea how someone can have such high boot rates. Recently I tried to create a fully functional alt (useful in ladders etc) while maintaining an enormously high boot rate; to achieve this, I would periodically join every RT/multi-day open game available and get booted turn 0... despite such extreme measures I was only able to keep a boot rate of 50%. A boot rate of over 60% is, simply, mind-blowing to me. I don't understand how people do it.


So, to those people whose skill at being an idiot surpasses mine: kudos to you.

diplos where you can get booted more than once.

^ Therefore over 100% boot rate is possible

Really any game where you can take over from AI, just keep taking over and getting booted.

Wow... what a discovery. Now we only need Fizzer to add new prerecusite of minimum boot rate. And the glorious High Boot´ rate Club can enjoy private games! To me every player over 10% of boot rate seems already weird. Thinking you get booted out of every 10th game - ? Like why? I wont even start with 20% or higher. Mine are all due to the my full of bad sectors hard drive that wants to freeze over time.

Minimum Boot Rate prereq needs to exist.

Does that not already exist? I thought that did... Crumbs, that needs to exist!

I only have 4 boots, and that was only because of the stupid server problems recently :(

So much for my perfect record...

A friendly reminder that someone actually demanded the maximum boot percentage prerequesite to be removed. Just read the "Petition: Boots Expire" thread.

I can be in favour of boots expiring... after a few years. I recently had a run of a few days where almost everything bad that could happen did, and I got booted from a few of my games. Plus a few others with extremely short boot times that I just barely ran afoul of.

Valid boots, to be sure - I'm not excusing myself - but I would like my boot rate to go back down to zero at some point in the future. People's circumstances change, so recent (1-2yr) history is more important than lifetime history.
