Finishing games

Something needs to be done about players who do not finish games because they are going to lose and do not want to adversely affect their stats. There should be an area to report these players and let others know of these unfair players.

    Honestly, I don't care if the person I'm playing against stats plumet because they decided to never finish what they started. This kinda teaches them a lesson that you need to finish or your gonna look like a loser. Also my stats go up so what do I care? Sorry if your for all the stuff about others but they need to be taught a lesson. And what is the point of complaining on a public board when nobody get to chose there opponent anways. If they get them they are stuck with them. Thanks

    So, I've got the higher score but have one letter left that I can't make a word with. My opponent and I just keep passing; if I resign, will I lose the game, even though I have the higher score?

    I agree. However I think the win should go to the person left hanging regardless if they are winning or losing. If you're only losing by a little, it isn't fair to take a loss just because the other person stopped playing

    I had a game end with me losing but I still had letters to play that would have made words. Where is the fairness in that and why did it happen?

    I agree that after a fixed amount of time, the person with the lower score should automatically lose. I've had a number of games where people stop playing. At least if they resign the win counts to the one who is left.

    Agree that a time limit following last play should be in effect. One week (with warning) warrants forfeiture of game.

    They should loose the game if they just stop playing and by resigning they could be fined coins -

    Three days is long enough which should be proceeded by a warning that they will record a loss if they don't play.

    Should collect their score to coin balance if they forfeit game. Had five people resign game because they are losing Not fair

    There should be a time limit, if after a week someone hasn't made their move then it should count as a loss and they forfeit the game

    I am also having this problem and find it annoying and unfair. If someone does not finish a game they are losing the win shroud go to the person with the highest score after a week or so.

    If you quit, it should count as a loss. PERIOD. I always play the game out EVEN if it means I pass because I can not think of a word. It's about showing respect and being a good sport.
