I will timeout if ts a tournament that I can potentially win and I will claim the skull in clan games because its not just a win for me its points for my clan.
If its a friendly game then I dont timeout (within reason, if a player has been inactive for a long period then I probably would)
Losing the main issue here (again): it's not 'just' a matter of time-out... look at the game: the guy claiming the win on time-out is mate in one...
Since he normally gives up in a lost situation way before this stage, I think this is not 'just' a time-out. But that would be near impossible to prove.
I think it's a matter of opinion. He's dead, one move for his opponent to finish it... So, he claims the time-out and walks away with victory, holding his head up high? Of course everyone is entitled to his/her own opinion, but to me this guy is a disgrace to the game.
But hey, this discussion will never end. It's nice though to see people showing their real character in this thread🙂
