It is my opinion that chess is a game of honor.that being said I've come across a lot of players here who have no honor.it really bothers me when I've more or less won the game and my opponent abandones the game instead or doing the honorable thing and resigning.I say lose the same way you win.sore losers suck
You can think what you want, so can I, but what does my being tough have to do with chess dummies not being able to accept their ass whipping like a man.if you can dish it out you should be able to take it.you must be one of the jerks who abandones a game when you are getting you bonehead cracked.
One other thing,its the jerks who can't take their whipping like a man who need to put their big boy pants.
I couldn't agree more, Atilla. They should either resign or play it out to the end. I've found that most sore losers are bad winners as well. It's an all-around maturity issue. In real life, nobody would tolerate them but the internet gives them an unending pool of new people to play with.
I've been fortunate in that I haven't encountered someone completely walking away from a game (though I have had someone wait until the last few minutes to move). If that happened to me, I would just open a new window and play tactics trainer until the game timed out and they lost. Then I'd block them and go about my day.
You shouldn't let them upset you, but there's no need to put up with that behaviour either.
Just report them for unsporting conduct. If they really are deliberately being unsporting that often, they won't be able to do it for long after being reported.
I couldnt agree more with atilla I just got done crackin his bonehead and he took it like a real man and got his ass whipped something proper like and not once did he complain about it wise words from an even wiser man
100% right. There are more and more everyday.
If they start writing offensive things into the chat while u are winning, spam the chat with the lyrics of the infamous "Trololo" song. You can't see their mesages!
