Not very sporting.
Just deploy then end your turn. The game will finish far more quickly than waiting 24 hours.
You're probably also overlooking the 10 v 5 battles where you keep 9 troops - but then so do most :roll: . That's another thread.

Forfeit/resign is a great idea for honest people. Too many not-honest people are the reason it's rejected.
I also believe you do have to anticipate cheating before it happens - it would be irresponsible not to. To say it's "incorrect" that it will be abused is, in my opinion, naive. One isn't supposed to create multiple accounts, but so many are busted. If one isn't that way inclined it's difficult to imagine why anyone would bother to abuse a simple, fun, game site, just to get points; I'm sure there's a psychology treatise to be written about how people validate themselves by breaking rules in places like this.
Sadly, humans are terrible. :(


Ya I know it's not sporting. But this isn't a sport. It's a game based on luck. I don't want to waste my time when the dice have been programmed to make me lose so my average rolls are always 3.5.

This way people don't have to play a bunch of rounds in games that are clearly decided. especially trench games it becomes obvious the game is over but on some maps you have to play a bunch more turns afterwards. Just a waste of time.

real simple... this has been debated for years and has been soundly [REJECTED]... too much room for abuse... will never happen...-Jésus noir

Hmm...
I don't want to waste my time

...then take your turns, it's quicker than deadbeating.
It's a game

..so don't take it so personally
based on luck.

the dice have been programmed

Can't have it both ways... :roll:
my average rolls are always 3.5

...which is of course what they're supposed to be.

I know it's frustrating to waste time on a lost cause; but either accept that's what's going to happen sometimes, or restrict yourself to settings where it's less likely, or stop playing; but if you're going to play, play nicely, drop the paranoia and take your turns.
