    MojosMojo:
    Many can’t stand that a player who is +8 keeps playing with no chance to win. They want you to quit so they can start and finish another game.

    Uh not . Not ever .

    There is no mojo in anything you said . All of it not true and not recommended . Not good practice and none of the formats are designed with that intent .

    Inventing negative scenarios is not creative or productive .

    Can anything be done to stop players giving up so easily?

    So when you lose . You should afford the same respect to the winner to complete the round and get his W . At the very least .

    Greetings , conversation , inqueries , compliments , best wishes , etc can be included as well .

    I always start every game with "Hi GL" I love a chat as I play. For me it's all part of the multiplayer game. I understand some don't, so if I get no response after one or two comments, I shut up. Always good to offer a "GG well played" at the end of a match too.

    Personally I don't care if people forfeit  as long as they do it correctly. Don't just click game off - go to screen and withdraw!

    That's right . And in most MP formats , forfeiting , WDing , quitting , leaving , etc does not effect the outcome too much .

    In Stroke Play , the player is just gone .

    In Alt Shot , no matter who leaves and how , the game is over .

    In Coins , if not exited properly , the match doesn't count . ( but you still may get your coins , but that's iffy )

    I like this and I am glad to see others posting the same message .

    For me and others it has to be that way . For this to be enjoyable . And justifiable to keep returning .

    God knows most of us aren't going to win anything . It has to be fun . And to share that with peers without an attitude is even better .

    I have no issue with someone forfeiting, as long as done correctly. What I do have a problem with is the game locking when a player just exits improperly. In the current Showdown my opponent left on the first hole at pinehurst and the game locked. When it resumed after a few minutes I was disqualified and given three bogies for the holes... knocking me well down the standings. 

    There are certainly glitches that have to be dealt with. Fortunately it is just a game and little money is on the line. Accept the crap and move on... life is too short to be irritated by the little things. So I guess I really don't have a problem with it after all....

    Forfeiting is an improper way to end many games . If not all .

    BarelyHuman:
    What I do have a problem with is the game locking when a player just exits improperly.

    This is the main reason why The " player " should not forfeit . Too big of a risk that the program will crash in one way or another .Always do whatever one can to stay until the end of the round . I mean " Come On " we are talking exclusively about 3 hole rounds .

    Very few " good sports " will exit the game . Even fewer of them will exit properly .

    Therefore a major majority of quitters in this game . Do so with the intentions of causing as much turmoil as possible . Intentionally 

    Hoping that the system and WGT do not recover from their actions . With even less regard for their opponent .

    So let's not put the malice of these cry baby quitters on WGT unfairly and unnecessarily .

    They can control very little of what goes wrong maliciously .

    I think it is more important to drive some sense into these immature , short fused , whiney assed , entitled , excuse for a grown men & women quitters ( because they both do it ) . To grow the FCK UP . Or stay away from anything that runs on power or a battery . IMSO .

    With all the data available in the " Time Stamp " . I know for a fact that they can see exactly which opponent QUIT the game . And how they did it .

    Wgt has this knowledge of God knows how many players that constantly disrupt their rounds . Over and over . They do nothing because of the potential revenue .

    If it were my site . These obsessive repeating degenerates would get 1 written warning . And then they would be gone . BANNED .

    IDK . Considering what the negative backlash that these habitual forfeiters generate .

    And the likely minimal spending these hasty players that just don't have time for anything .

    To eliminate or minimize a lot of that constant turmoil . Resulting in longer periods with little to no crashes , glitches , errors , unhappy consumers , bug reports , etc .

    Might be quite a favorable result . In all areas .

    There may be exceptions to every rule--

    Perhaps someone here can help--Yesterday was a rare exception that I told the other player I had to leave the game because

    1. He was letting the time elapse to zero on EVERY shot, and

    2. for reasons that escape my understanding, even after his clock read 0:00, after another 20 to 25 sec. later, he still took his shot and the game failed to penalize him for late play with a warning or disqualifying him [a Master].

    I'd understand if that happened once, but it kept happening after every one of his turns--Has this happened to anyone else?
