Cancelling a multiplayer game with unresponsive opponent???

Post by Malty666 » Wed Dec 30, 2009 8:20 pm

I am involved in a multiplayer game.

The scenario is still on turn 1 and my opponent has not made a move since December 14!!!

How do I get to delete the game from my game list to fill the slot with someone that actually wants to play?

I have had to resign a game once because for 2 turns in a row I could not move anyone on the map, and it started on turn 3 well before we had even closed into melee. I managed to find it somewhere in the ingame menu just don't recall where it was. It even allowed me to send a message in the text window for the reason I had to resign

Thanks Guys - unfortunately its his turn and I can't access the game to quit it.

Maybe we should have a 'name and shame' section :twisted:

Perhaps if you dropped some rotting horse carcasses up stream of his water supply he might become aggravated enough to cancel the game on you instead.

I had a single play (vs PC) game that suddenly didn't allow me to move any units (I could click them, but not move any) and the only way I found to get round the problem was to save the game, reload it and it was all OK.

Other than that, it's been a goot first few hours with the game! :)

Yeah I am in the same boat. Five games with unresponsive players. Punishment must be severe.

Sometimes it takes a few days, especially over the holidays, but no problem here. I do think a cancel-for-delay option or warning message should be available after a few days or a week, say.

It is something we're going to add. If a game has been in your opponents turn and inactive for more than say 2 weeks, we're going to give you the option to claim the game.
