This is pretty self-explanatory....and a very convenient option for mutually consenting opponents. Perhaps a player could send an official request for deletion....same as sending a 'draw' offer. If the opponent doesn't want to delete, then he simply plays on.
This may sound like a ridiculous idea, but i believe there are actually several different occasions where opponents would mutually appreciate the option.
Originally posted by steelydanWell, a draw on a rated game should effect your rating. You can't just abandon games, if this is adopted it would no doubt get abused and would distort the outcome of tournament and clan games if high rated players could simply trade cost-free draws. Bad idea.
The difference between mutually agreeing to a draw and mutually agreeing to a deletion is obvious: draws affect ratings, deletions do not.
Look, I'm not vehement about this idea....though I do believe it would be a nice addition t ...[text shortened]... s do. This abortion option would just be a nice option.
Originally posted by flexmoreA win gives 3x as many points as a draw currently in a tournament. Both players are punished for drawing if there is any decent chance for winning. This rule would allow people to avoid that, which I don't like.
the players obviously are friendly,
the problem they must be facing is auto timeout,
this is only from tournaments at the present ...
should they be able to delete in this situation?
i say yes ... unless it allows both players to progress in a tournament ... then it should NEVER be allowed .
deletion is slightly better than a false draw ...
BUT there are more pressing tasks ... in a later patch i hope russ sorts this out.
