Too bad we did.

We asked for an Abandon and we told em we didn't wanna play against them cause we'd be outmatched.  All they did was keep saying "It's fine lets play It's fine lets play It's fine lets play, don't worry about it the percentages are close"  And then they just refused to abandon and we just kept asking, then that was it.

when did that happen ?

Let me clarify a few things...

No system is going to be perfect.  Politely asking for an abandon, regardless of the rules is not a ridiculous request.  Especially in the situation just displayed.

We do NOT want players refusing to play simply because they 'think' they are outmatched.  I know Ucross and I have both won games with fresh companies against players with veterancy and more CP.  

If the only way playing is fun, is when you win.  They you will probably be a detriment to the community anyway.  It's not all about wins and losses.  It's about taking out key units, gaining veterancy/CP, etc...

Or, IMO, fun is just destroying the map / vet hunting.  Grin

Can the game just be autoabandoned so we can go on already?  This is ridiculous.

I don't have a fresh company, I'm a fresh newb with no experience.  Put a T4 Doctrine and a full vet company in my arms and I'm not nearly as good with someone with the same thing.

It's not the fresh company, we asked for the abandon and they wanted to be douchebags about it.

But I see there are people that are just not friendly and wanna bash me for experience, fine.  I'm new to the game, Who wants to play a game against me and dig up some experience?  Cause thats pretty much my usage now.

..LIEUTENANT MATT cannot single handely defeat 3 people who work together on a regular basis.

THANK YOU

I'm sorry this has happened, it happens every week or so and everyone calls for a change of the system.  The problem is, our community isn't big enough.  So you either you play the game, knowing you will probably lose and have a chance to take out units, or maybe even win if you play well, or you don't -- which results in the whole mod failing because you only care about playing in a game you can win.

If you want to recruit all your friends and their friends and their friends to play so we have enough players to where we can tighten the restrictions on uneven games, believe me we will.

Yes part time, no doubt that was against me when i played with a very good player such as Schultzz, AMPM, Brad, McPage, Nate etc etc, not when i played with two new guys that are learning the ropes.

I am so disappointed in the players concerned and the moderator. We were not rude, i am never rude to anyone unless they deserve it. I am confident, in fact i am sure if you ask any player that i have played with or against, that i am not rude, and i would expect the same to go for my team mates.

These guys were not rude, they were however confident that we should play them even though they admitted and knew that two of my team mates were noobs, and they were excellent players. They said its ok, it will be ok etc, they have a good chance of winning bla bla bla. This was before the game had started, if we had started the game we would have played on.

I believe noob bashing is gay, and we need to respect our fellow community. If we don't we might as well be the all powerful bully that nobody likes. If its the allies that didn't have the vet and crap I'll play them I have no vet maybe a couple vet 1 and thats it. I'll even show them some cool tactics and stuff.

Excuse me, i am trying to be polite here but stop lying out of your ****. No one was rude, and don't try to feed this crap to other users about us. End of discussion from me.

..I never called you an idiot.

Don't see where you got that idea.  We just said we don't wanna be stacked against a much better team and yall were insisting on it continueing.  Get on vent and come to our channel if you're so eager to discuss this.  I asked for you to abandon.  You ignored me, thanks.  Good community member you are.

Battle has been abandoned.  I consider the subject closed.

Key notes:

A) The no-abandon rule, like most is not set in stone.
B) If there are enough players to facilitate a more even game and ANTS provides you with a game you know will be lop-sided and one side prefers not to play, be considerate.
C) The system is not perfect.  Will never be perfect.  You either enjoy playing the modification or you don't (win or lose).

Cokkles needs a hug, time out, and some candy.

In other words: CALM THE FUCK DOWN

I've played games where I knew I was outmatched, you play them anyways because 1) not playing games vs specific people is a nice way to get many people pissed at you 2) You may still win, a quote from somewhere here is "Vet is good, but can't fix stupid" (Ron White ftw!) 3) If you want to play a game so badly then play the damn game, COH is about luck half the time and you may have won the game.
