The poll question kinda says it all.

*If you have ideas for change, post them for lack to see*

Well I voted for no, but I think I really meant "It should be changed."

I get the feeling that some people surrender just so the person that's raping them won't get their cards. I think that if one surrenders, their cards should become the property of [neutralplayer], and if the aforementioned raper really wants those cards, he'll continue the assault.

I voted no, but need changes...

Maybe you should only be able to surrender after a number of turns...
And maybe surrendered contry could give a card?

I voted that it should be removed. if your going to play then play. it's not like surrendering is going to allow you to play another game. And who knows maybe you could make a come back.

The neutral player should keep cards. If you don't let people surrender they will just become deadbeats.

surrendering has got to be an option, but I think like many that the cards should be nutral players, to be taken by conquer,
HOWEVER I think that there should be a penalty, like maybe a 40 point loss just to discurage such behavior. and i realy believe that with the major deadbeat problem out there that it should be a miss 3 turns and get the boot not 4, I mean if you commit to a game it shouldnt be that hard to find 10 min for your turn in 48hrs.

I agree that it's annoying to have someone surrender and then lose their cards. But I'm not for cards going to just "neutral player" because there are random neutral countries scattered in games... so say you were knocking out this one guy over in Australia, and he surrenders, and now the only other neutral country is way over in S. America and someone else gets it. So I say a player surrenders and they go to a "surrendered" color of some sort, or get a surrendered marks of some kind around their name. It's just like they're still there but they can't play anymore and they don't count as present in rounds.

Respectfully I must disagree, joetalk... it's way too harsh to have an additional penalty for surrendering. Sometimes people have to leave to go out of town on business or their mother gets sick or whatever. They can't help it, so why punish them? They should be applauded for politely surrendering and not just going deadbeat.

Perfect. Just leave the color the same, but in the player list, their name is strikethrough.

If you're not gonna play, get the f*ck out. Don't hold everyone else up just because you lost interest.

I made an executive decision. No surrendering. At Conquer Club we play till the death. That button just seemed to cause more problems than it solved.
