Good 1st post . But realistically . The chances of matching up with the same random players again are slim to none .
There are a lot of reasons , excuses , glitches , etc that cause games to end early .
Not the least of which is the human factor . It is a hard sell to many to convince that game time is so sacred . That exiting is not possible . Especially in rounds where there is no benefit or gain . Or just plain don't count .
You , like many of us . Play till the end no matter what . Unfortunately this trend you see is very common . More than I have ever seen it .
You might end up with a bigger banned list than you have friends .
Here is what I wrote on the previous page ,
Probably completely different issues . You responded 9 years after the post . All good .
Can WGT send everyone guidelines or something?
Yes if you look in the options box in the game client . There is a
forfeit prompt . It is the WGT recommended polite way to exit a game .
It is not mandatory to use the forfeit prompt . So many people just
leave . But 99 out of 100 were " disconnected " .
PLEASE apply penalties to people who do this.
No penalties since it is most often not their fault .
Or they just don't want to play anymore or something came up . Can't penalize for that .
Also forfeits and disconnection only occur in non ranked events and
rounds . Rounds that do not count for anything . So it doesn't matter ,
if they have something else they had to do .
In Stroke Play ( the only ranked round format ) If everyone else
disconnects or leaves the game . You will still be allowed to continue
solo . Which is GR8 . Because only you can affect your score .
Now there is even more non counting , non ranked rounds to be played . Faster , quicker . Seems like it's breeding some very impatient players .
Anyway . Thanks for posting . And play well .
Oh . And CONGRATS .
