Intentionnally missing turns

Postby Donelladan on Wed Jun 19, 2013 11:00 am

Hello,

I know that deadbeating is forbidden.
But what about intentionnal miss turn?
Like I am in a game, and someone miss 2 turns, then come back, then miss another turn.
And that guy is active in other games at the same time, and he dont miss turns !

I want to know in general, not only in the case I explained, is intentionnally missing a turn against the rules?

I think it should be :x

I'm pretty sure it's not against the rules, although incredibly annoying. Best thing to do is foe and move on, and win the game. ;)

Rate accordingly, too.

being intentionally annoying is against the rules. Therefor if such a player has a frequent (ab)user habit of this tactic, you should report him/her/it to the Q&A department(aka hunters) they will warn the player, and if him continues and persists, ban him

I can see situations where this might be a deliberate strategic tactic, and not intentionally annoying. For instance, Let's say I'm playing an Assassin Nuclear Trench game, and I'm comfortable that I'm not on the verge of being eliminated (nor is anyone else). I know who my target is hunting, and my target has a stack of troops adjacent to one of my spoils locations currently occupied by his target. I've got 5 spoils, and if I play my turn I'll be forced to use the spoil for that location. If I skip my turn, I can be reasonably assured that my target will take that location, hopefully with his entire stack. Skipping in this scenario seems like a fair play.

Another possibility: If I'm playing a No Spoils Trench game and players may attack me in 2 possible locations, I may choose to skip and receive the deferred troops to fortify one location over the other

this is most certainly not fair play. it might be a valid tactic though to win the game. Also,You are making everybody way a turn, mostly that is 24 hours.... If you make a habit out of this, then you will be banned. However on accasion, well then it will simply taken in stride.
In the aforementioned example, as incident you shold not get into trouble with the law. How people are going to rate such an underhand tactic is up to them though.
personally i think its clever and low at the same time.
