I mean the way it is is cool and all
but it allows top players to refuses challenges
if it was a bracket tournament
paired but your rating and refuses are turned off
you shouldnt be allowed to refuse a match in a tourny
Refuse ability is needed because some time out lurkers stay hidden and only challenge. If you know who they are you can refuse them.
Also what if you challenge someone and for somereason you have to leave when they accept you can then hit refuse and the game is canceled.
