I know it's considered bad form to quit a battle to deny your opponent a potential knockout bonus, but is it still considered bad form to quit early if either A) you pull your one and two level cards and your opponent pulls four and five level cards at the start or B) you know you've lost the match by the second round because the randomizer nailed you on a battle you should have won?
I try to see my matches through, but there are cases where it's way too frustrating to not throw in the towel early. What's the etiquette on this?
It's considered bad form and as a result the player who does that gets no battle points/clints/xp, while the "winner" gets full battle points and 40 xp on any characters that didn't get to fight (where applicable).
The "punishment" for pulling out of a fight early has already been coded into the game.
Basically the best thing to do is just tough it out. It's only 2 more rounds.
Noted. I'll tough out the joke matches then. I didn't know about the bonus experience your opponent gets when you quit, though. You could arguably use that to grief when fighting the very popular level one Gwen/Svelthlana decks right now, forcing experience on them both. It's really a bit silly that level one Gwen is worth 2-1/2 times level three Gwen on the market right now.
