    I recall seeing this once before in the forum somewhere,
    but just wanted to raise a point.

    I don't like claiming timeout wins...
    but sometimes feel as though I am obliged to
    if the opponent is hardly ever making moves.

    Currently, I have a game that is 1 and 3 moves per day and in time bank respectively.
    We are 6 moves in and my opponent has used all 3 days time bank already.

    I would usually claim... but my current win % via timeout is 18.52%

    I'd rather see this drop to less than 10 (or 5 even)... but as a non-subscriber, I have limited games so.... guess I gotta skull it?

    Anyone else have to deal with this kind of issue?

    Don't sweat it. If they wanted to play, they'd play. Skull em and find someone who wants to play.

    If you only have six game slots, you should be trying to click every skull the moment it appears. Why waste a perfectly good game slot? I have a 16% timeout win ratio and it doesn't bother me one bit.

    Well, what a shame...



    Another win by timeout....
    ok I was going to win anyway, but the fact that the records will show it's by timeout annoys me a little lol

    Worst part is, we was playing 3 days per move, 7 days timebank :/

    I am quick to take any skulls that I see, without warning. I give no mercy to chessplayers on here in the same manner that I am given no mercy.

    Beware of clicking too many skulls that you get a rating above 2200. High ratings anger many on here, especially if you say you don't believe in the theory of evolution.

    Yeah, anyone over 2200 automatically pisses off the entire populace.

    I DO believe in evolution, so no problem there
