Don't Award Points to Deadbeat or Rule Violating Partners

Postby kingwaffles on Tue Jan 31, 2006 9:27 pm

Mod Edit: This suggestion and the dozen other threads merged with it call for deadbeat or rule-violating teammates to not receive points, in doubles, triples, and quadruples games. The points not received by the deadbeat/violator would then go to all teammates who fought it out until death or the end. So far, this suggestion has not been rejected and its status is still open. If you have anything to contribute, please post here instead of making a new topic. If there is a topic you feel that should be merged with this thread, contact a mod on the Suggestions Team.

Also, see this variation of the suggestion

I just played a doubles game where my partner took their first turn then didnt play after that and was dropped. I managed to win in the end but he still got half the points. I think that if someone gets kicked or surrenders in a doubles or triples game they shouldnt get any points, or if they do it should be a small fraction of what the other player gets.

BTW great job on everything Lackattack!

I think if someone gets kicked, or surrenders, and YOU win the game for the team? He should be a loser like the others. And you should take everyone's points.

I think it should be the remaining team members get points BUT the other team member (s) DOESN'T get points or lose points.

Deadbeat Partners

Postby dussle on Thu Jul 06, 2006 10:53 am

I've noticed that whenever my partner is a deadbeat, he doesn't lose points at the end when we're the losing team, and I have to lose double to pay for it. That is ridiculous. Is there anyway to stop this?

you dont lose double just what you would lose normally to the winning teams avarage. the only way to avoid this is to only play with people you trust in teams... also helps to have seperate im set up with them

HE WAS RIGHT TO DEADBEAT YOU ACCORDING TO THE BUSHWACKERS, BECAUSE HE GOT INTO THE GAME AND REALIZED YOU WERENT A FELLOW CLANSMAN. HE ONLY WAS WRONG BECAUSE HE DIDNT MAKE A FAKE OFFER TO PLAY IT OUT AND THEN RETRACT IT.

Wow! If not for the overwhelming evidence of his death, I could be convinced Sen. Joe McCarthy is alive and well, and an active member of CC. :)

11 apiece... 11 x 2 = 22 since you can't give half points.

Dead beats...

Postby Molacole on Sun Aug 20, 2006 9:15 am

It's annoying having dead beats be the deciding factor in a game. It bothers me even more when I see them gain points after dead beating.

Then you have the intentional deadbeats who start their turn and never place any armies just to make you wait in sequential games if they know they're doomed.

Deadbeats getting points for winning games

Postby yossarian87 on Tue Sep 19, 2006 1:12 pm

Currently, if your partner deadbeats in a doubles game, but you go on to win the game anyways, you still split the point gain with your partner. I think it would be more fair give winning deadbeats 0 points, and to split the points among the winning players who either played through the whole game or were killed in action.

So are you saying that when you have a deadbeat on your team and you lose, that you should be the only one on your team who loses points?

I think that your idea will only complicate the points system, which is designed to have a points total of (number of players) * 1000 at all times. If you do something like this, you could screw up the number of points someone would win/lose in a match, simply because of a deadbeat.

Besides, if you don't like how low your score is, you should just win games like I do.
I was a major back when 1600 was major. Now that I'm back, I get to easily win a bunch of games to get my rank. Thank the 'tards here who suck at this game.

Sure... but we'd have to switch back to deadbeat countries going neutral instead of them passing to their teammate.

No, deadbeats on the losing team should still lose points, but deadbeats on the winning team should not gain points.

The idea is to punish the deadbeats but not their partners and opponents.

Postby rayjret on Tue Sep 19, 2006 10:16 pm

That's true to a degree, but some points are lost. When a team wins an odd number of points, I believe 1 is subtracted each time so the score divides evenly. Over all the team games played, that probably adds up to a fair amount of points lost, but its close to players*1000

It's no where close to players * 1000. There are so many people who have joined the site, deadbeated a game, and never returned. If I had to take a guess, I'd say the points are about players * 1150

Partner gets points for deadbeating?

Postby Kayla on Thu Oct 12, 2006 3:53 pm

if my partner totally quits on me and never plays a turn, (doubles game of course), why does he get half the points still?
