When I was traveling in the Philippines, I was having connection issues all the time. Thankfully, you can get back into a game now when you get dropped. But yes, if you drop right from the start and never come back in, thast sucks. I've played some master accounts that are a computer the whole way through. No fun and unfair to him that he's guaranteed to take a loss.
I would actually like to see a "ready to go" button on the start page because if you join and leave immediately, people can start the game with you still in it. I don't join games for this reason. Too many people play with novices and if I try to look for games with high ranking people, I'm pretty much stuck with staying if I join a populated game that has a bunch of novices for fear of being a dead human player at game start when I exit just before the game actually starts on my end.
Great idea, but like myself the server is forever disconnecting me, which makes me loose my coin/s and look like I have chosen to quit. Needs some work by the developers/ servers.
Most online games punish you for leaving, regardless of the reason. If you can't guarantee that you can be connected and available to play, then don't start a game - it is that simple.
Imagine if this was another kind of game like Dota - would you want to play with anyone that might just disconnect? You can't ruin other peoples time because don't you don't have a good connection.
Starting a game like this is a large time investment for everyone, and it is reckless to start games knowing that you will be disconnected. Very rude to everyone.
Online gaming requires stable internet if you want to be courteous to others. If you play online games without stable internet, you are rude and discourteous to others.
You still lose the same amount of rank points as if you didn't quit, I don't quite see the issue.
Yes! It counts as a loss to that offline player, but beating all the others.
Eric Asmodius, that's the problem that people are referring to though. The winning offline player gains rank points that they probably wouldn't have won if they'd stayed in the game. The advantage of leaving before you're beat is that the other players tend to ignore abandoned players and concentrate their attack on the remaining live ones.
Yeah, that's sometimes an issue - there are people who exploit that by leaving then rejoining later in the game - but this thread is about the computer player being better than the original player. Regardless the reason the quitting rewards you the same spot as your AI is to combat the players who harass others by failing to end the game when they have clearly won, so that those players can leave and avoid a never ending game without taking a rank point hit.
