Okay, so I was having a bad streak loosing in ELO .. so I was forfeiting every battle .. and you know who messaged me ? Kate ..
I’m sorry to tell you that because you've recently forfeited too many battles, you've been banned from creating a new battle for a few minutes.
Forfeiting a battle is very annoying for the other players, please don't do it unless you really need to.
Okay .. now the flag button is the only button that was preventing me from throwing my lappy away due to loosing. And, I was forfeiting, not timing out, how is it annoying for the user? It is good for them indeed ..
There is NOTHING wrong with forfeits at all. Urban Rivals wants to force us to continue hopeless and lost games which are frustrating. That is a waste of time! Very bad job Urban Rivals staff!
The only problem are stallers. But playing slowly as possible to destroy another player´s tournament performance seems to be one of the key feature of this game. Let´s rename it to Urban slow players or Urban Stallers .
There aren´t many forfeits anyway because of this:
"In case of default win, the player who withdraw from the battle lose all the progress made in his missions during the match."
This change fixed this problem. In most situations a resignation is good for the opponent! This game is not only about silly missions...
If you really want to introduce a forfeit rule then do it in a new mission room. But nowhere else! Otherwise this new rule is horrible!
I am a chess player, I am used to resign in lost positions. So if I see no winning chances I will resign. And I do not think that there is anything wrong with it!
This is not chess.
There is not just 1 / 1/2 / 0 for win / draw / loss.
I am not going to repeat all the pointless "discussion".
If you love chess so much that you want its scoring system more or less applied here, why don't you petition to get rid of those stpid BP and levels and everything. They are silly and should not matter and one should get 1 point for winning, regardless how, 1/2 for drawing and 0 for losing.
