I really hate when i'm 8 moves into a game and my opponent resigns on me. Or as soon as they lose their queen, or make a mistake early and they resign immediately. Try to play it out and see what happens. A mistake can happen anytime, but at least try to play the game out, perhaps i might make a mistake... I do not enjoy playing against quitters and whiners.
Its not quitting, its saving your time. Its considered etiquette to resign in a lost position, or if you know your opponent can beat you in it. If you know your opponent can't beat you in knight and bishop vs king, don't resign!
DONT PLAY WITH HIM AGAIN
I understand resigning a lost position and saving time, however if you're good enough you can turn a game around with brilliant play or capitlizing on mistakes, i dig the form of etiquette, but i just don't understand resigning so early to try and save a rating.
Resigning is identical to losing via mate... and anyone who would resign to save points due to other pending games is silly.
People should resignwhen they are lost and there is nothing left to learn.
It doesn't bother me if someone resigns perhaps too easily.
Dragging out a really, really lost game while playing OTB and with no clock...that's different. Then it would be nice if I could chop off their little pinky...just joking, of course.
Do you really think that being a queen down isn't enough to resign?
I am not saying everyone must resign in this situation, but it is an acceptable option. I don't understand why complaining about this kind of resignation.
Unless I'm mistaken, resigning early doesn't save rating unless it's before the first 3-4 moves of the game. Also, I don't get why you condemn your opponents resigning when they drop their queen, yet say that resigning in a lost position is fine.
A win is a win. Don't let resignation bother you.
I hate it when my opponent is a queen down with no compensation and has no chances of winning but keeps on playing, dragging out a game that's effectively over. Even if I make a mistake and drop a piece I'm still going to win the game.
Any good player hates when people drag out completly lost games it goes both ways
