I was not warned or muted before being kicked. Does anyone else get frustrated when you have your oponent beat and he abandons the game before it is finished? If I abort he gets points for losing, so I just sit there getting more and more frustrated. So I said a couple salty words, it was wrong yes I agree. Abandoning games is just as salty in my opinion, it forces you to sit there untill the time expires to get your points. If I abort my oponent gets points for a game he has not won. There should be a kicked rule in affect for abandoned games also because they are just as unsportsman like as profanity .
There is a rule in effect for abandoned games; take look at the Fair Play Policy.
Dragonleo, you already asked this on a different thread where I replied to you.
Cursing, taunting, or bad show on chat is worse than anyone letting time run out. Getting frustrated is OK. Losing control is not. Ultimately you will be held accountable for it. You are responsible for you. When you do this, you fail yourself. You are held accountable for your actions, and he/she will be held accountable for their actions. And really, what are a few minutes. You still get the win.
I have experienced very unfortunate exchanges in the chat for no reason at all. I got everything from those who were winning a game taunting, or those losing a game whining and carrying on like a four year old. I let it get to me at first, but now if it occurs, I just disable chat and continue to play the game. Or if I was really offended, I’ll just resin and play someone worth losing to.
So, if you got punished for cursing...you were wrong, you lost control, you did the dead, and you are being held accountable for that. Take it, learn from it, be a better person next time, and move on.
I liked the title anyway!
