    This game was a David V Goliath challenge by our drdon (playing the part of David) again my2sons the leader of Metallica (playing the part of Goliath).

    After the game was finished, won by our very own Goliath destroyer, our clan leader widget asked why the resignation so early?

    The answer given was

    Can any better rated players explain why this is the case?

    My gut tells me that position is undecided. Crafty confirms it. (+0.07)

    I suspect there's some 'real life' reason White resigned.

    He's sandbagging Rob.

    He resigned two games against me and another player in the final round of a club tournament, he was winning in one of the games against me. Three hours later he starts a few clan games against players with his lower rating.

    and to think that I trusted him Noobster my friend! shame on Metallica, i thought they were my friends! They told me Amsterdam were the real culprits, had more sand than Sandy the sand merchant who lives near Sandringham with his wife Sandra! The problem is, they are all at it, Amsterdam and the IVV!

    He drops his rating from mid 1800's to mid 1700's by resigining in 6 games in a few hours. Some of which though were valid. He then starts 6 or 7 new clan games with his 'new' rating against players ranked mid 1700 or lower.

    I don'treally care about the petty clan drivel, but this is blatant sandbagging.

    This is a load of crap and a smear campaign.

    Here are four of the games I recently resigned.

    Game 7831054
    Game 7831055
    Game 7657303
    Game 7826712

    You so called experts please tell me why I shouldn't have resigned these games!
    So my rating went down all at once, guess that has never happened to anyone else on this site. Since I resigned these games, I won one and drew another. Not exactly the sign of a sandbagger.

    Some people on these site definitely need to get a life.

    It's not a smear campaign, stop being so dramatic. Goodness grief.

    I make the last game a draw. And i would hardly call being a rook down against me as lost.

    my dear my2sons, this was not a personal attack on you, but my evaluation of some of the top clans as a whole. Please do not take it personally, it was never intended to be so. I apologise if you have been offended by it, but i think you shall agree, similar language has been used by your very self to describe the clans system and some of the shenanigans which go on there 🙂
