my opponent disconnected on purpose after hitting a terrible tee
Again even before I read below . I didn't believe the above
the game remained in disconnect status loading for 6 hours.
What a terrible guy . Abusing his power like that . How dare he .
That right there let him off the hook . Not to mention ;
I realized now I was charged with the loss and lost all the money!!
Which is another big sign that your opponent likely wanted to play the tournament as badly as you did . Obviously he didn't disconnect or he would have been charged with it . It is very likely the game didn't know who to charge with their own disconnect and got it wrong .
They will probably refund your fee .
