    Is there an advantage to forfeiting - lately higher ranked players (Championed, Tour Legends, Legends) have all quit before end of game, where they would have lost.  They all forfeit & are higher level....should I forfeit games I would lose?  Does it help me move up?

    Lost games do not affect average and tiering negatively. Lost matches (single or A/S) do appear in the stats, though, so it may be a matter of pride or misinformation.

    The negative effect of quitting is that neither player would receive the XPs awarded at the end of a game (i.e. awards and completion) - only the shot XPs (one at a time) are awarded immediately.

    Thus, those who quit hurt themselves (and others).

    Anyone quitting on me without explanation goes into my "blocked players list" immediately !

    Blocked players list doesn’t stop you getting drawn against them again though , it only stops them from writing on your wall and sending you a friend request

    also blocks chat in mobile H2H games. but as you stated can still draw them in a match.

    dumbest thing ever for a block list.

    Taken from WGT / FAQ's …..

     

    What does Blocking Other Players do?

    WGT has a great community, but you're bound to not want to hear from everyone, so use the new Block Player option on the Community page. Blocking a player will remove the ability for that player to invite, friend, challenge, message or post on your wall.

    Do they really though?  At Champion or Legend, the XP loss of a single round is negligible..it hurts the lower tier player, sure....

    Congrats!  Most questions are best directed to those FAQs... but since you added blocking to the topic, i must comment that players who forfeit in games to which i am party, cause me to chuckle, mildly..  have a wonderful day/week/year/life, and remember, it IS just a game..

    I agree that it is "just a game" as you call it.

    However, to me it is also my time.

    I really don't like people who waste my time by quitting early and I will do everything I can to prevent myself from playing them ever again.

    If that involves referring to wgt's T's & C's via this forum, then I certainly will.

    In return, I must ask you though .....

    Is that the general attitude in your Country Club - that it is "just a game" ?

    If so, then I wish you the best of luck with your recruiting.

    lol
