what if the losing party wants to play it out till the bitter end?

Just make it that you can only resign if the other player approves of the resign. Similarly point dumping is a minimal issue considering we have a handful of them a year. Its not like point dumping is hard to do under the current one min turns...so factoring that into a decision is not really necessary.

I think the arguments against resigning / forfeiting this way in the suggestions topics respond to these pretty well, perhaps look in one of those.

I have looked at them in the past, there will always be reasons to do something and reasons to not do something. It is still my personal opinion that a resign feature would not cause any harm provided people were allowed to not let people resign. Then people who want to play it out get to and those who don't have the option not to. It serves the needs of everyone giving priority to the current status quo.

It's hard to have a total domination game when so many games end in deadbeat's. Playing out a game with no opponent gets very old as does deploy and end for several rounds while a finished game creeps toward a conclusion.

Exactly; After a certain point in the game, it's obvious that you won or lost.

I've been playing most of my Trench games on the Island of Doom map, and I quite like the way it plays with the setting. I think lack of continents (but also the lack of a tremendous amount of neutrals), in addition to 2 winning conditions has made for a number of fun games...

Seriously this post from you? You who gave me a deadbeat rating for respectfully resigning a ONE MINUTE TRENCH FEUDAL EPIC game?

You have NO basis for calling for a resign function if you are going to punish your losing opponents like you do.

You are disingenuous at BEST...
:evil:

Here's the game number, and you can see the rating easily enough. Game 11038004

I have nothing more to say to you... :P

What about a resign feature that is greyed out until like 70% terit dominaation. So if they want to play it out they can. However you just cant do it at turn 2 because someone got a epic roll turn 1 and your mad about it.

I think a solution like this would be the best of both worlds and make everyone happy yes?
