Multiplayer: opponents quitting

Post by jshaun29 » Wed Jul 11, 2018 2:55 pm

Starting playing multiplayer 2 months ago and let me say I think it's amazing. There is a plethora of outstanding and competitive maps with an added message board, truly exciting! I would highly suggest everyone to check it out. That said there is a significant problem I am encountering. Whenever I am beating an opponent many times they will stop playing and the game stands in LIMBO. For days if not weeks. I can assume why; however, this pretty much ruins the multiplayer playing experience. Is there something that can be done about this? Perhaps the person who "quits" after a couple weeks is provided a loss? I've lost my share of games and I always play to the end or surrender. Some players refuse to take their turn and forget about the game all-together..pretty frustrating to say the least.

Also, is there a way to add a win loss column when the games are complete!? (Something for the suggestion box that I think would enhance the experience)

GodSpeed & Cheers

you can claim the game...it does not count as a win or a loss (Except in your private tally)...but I am just saying for satisfying the steam achievement...but at leats you can get it out of your queue...it just needs to be about a month old...

Welcome aboard and hope you continue to enjoy this game for what it is

Thank you for you the info! So after a month I will be provided an option to "claim the game"? That will help. However, I feel the opponent who decides to "quit" after a month should be provided a loss. I think it would help and provide a positive competitive experience and would definitively light a fire to prevent quitting.

Is there a tally in the Results queue that shows wins and losses (like a player's record?) Personally I have to try to memorize which game was a win or a loss when looking back on it.

no the game has no tally to tell you the number of wins or losses....i used to keep track but stopped a few months back...

the button is on the bottom of the screen and you can click on multiplayer screen for players turn tab...

Again thank you. Hopefully the DEVS would consider both options I mentioned for the suggestion box!
