I'm not entirely sure how many games you have to quit in ELO before the player starts being 'penalised' as it says in the rules. It's just that in the last few days I have had situations where I have had the upper hand in a match and the opposing player has just left with one round remaining resulting in me not getting ANY points for that particular match.
I just thought I'd bring this up because I didn't realise just how easy it is to protect your points in these ELO matches and is quite open to abuse if this isn't more tightly moderated.
I have to admit that I don't have any ideas off the top of my head (maybe adjust the points system so the points are obtained through the actual rounds rather than just having 1 score at the end of the match so if someone quits you still get points for what you have achieved?), but in its current form it is a blatent cheat.
What does everyone else think? Is this a problem with everyone or am I just challenging the wrong people?
