Now I know how to gain high ELO... simply play anybody - if you win, then you win, if you're loosing, simply timeout... I thought that some noob players timeouts because they're noobs, but the elder players are fair and wont timeout you, especially in ELO... So I was very surprised when I got timeouted by Jedi-morph, 4th player in ELO ranking at the time of the battle... How I am supposed to make it to the top 25 when I cannot beat high ranked player, cos he's coward and unfair?
I think that letting timeout in ELO should be punished very strictly - lets say 50 points down... cos the way it is is totally unbelievable and such manners are ruining the game. I think that the Urban staff should start doing something about timeouting... I haven't spent my money for this game to watch that the only thing that admins do is banning cards in ELO and other stupid stuff when there is such a huge problem as timeouting
I agree, the next poll should be how best to punish elo timeouters. minus 50 points is a great idea or plus 50 points if your opponent times out, that would be great!
Ya mate i also experience it a win is a win a loose is a timeout sometimes this is a big problem to me especially after loosing one battle from a luck or logically...this should count as a loss...ppl are too much getting abusive
Hmmm neko thats good suggestion but thats too much how bout we do it like 30% of elo value?
I think theres no need for punishment... If someone got connection problems taking his 50 points or so away is too much.. I think that generally timeout should be count as if the person who timeouted had lost... I really dont get why timeout counts as if there was no game in the first place - admins must had a bad day when they were developing game rules concerning timeout
Ok, maybe not 50, but if it isn't your turn and the game times out you should get about 15 points
50 is a lot indeed... may 10/15 is a fair value, mostly a nice point reduce for the timeout guy (and c´mon 50 points = 2 games... 10 minutes, no big deal to lose this points)
I would like the points ive earned more than the punishement, but ive come to a conclusion this game is no where close to fair
Please 50 points penalty!!!!! and how about much MORE time delay for time-outer during normal leagues? that can be fun too .... I HATE TIME OUTER!!!! =(
Concerning the time out it should classify you as a winner and your points should be adjusted accordingly...for the guy that timeouts... if he timeouts more then 5 times he should be disqualified for the rest of the month this would totally eliminate this problem,hell make it if he timeouts 3 times he is banned for the month...
