Rematches

    Why do most people refuse rematches? I understand that when I win a game, the other player may not want a rematch as they may not consider themselves of equal skill. But when I loose, shouldn't it be common courtesy to accept one rematch?
    I always accept a rematch if it is asked and if I can't, I say so in the chat.

    What do you think? Does it not bother you when you ask for one and the other person leaves the chat?

    Some people simply start a new game with someone else (some people prefer that way) and your rematch offer is auto-declined.

    After a good close tense game I like to let my opponent "cool off" for awhile. He's usually a little more motivated to win the next game. Has nothing to do with fear, but everything to do with how I want to manage my games.

    Was that double post intentional or a bug?

    look up "rematch" in the search tab, and read through some of the results that you get.

    This topic has already been discussed to death.

    There could be a hundred reasons why your opponent didn't give you a rematch.  After my last game, I had to quick shit.  That was more important to me than any rematch.  Laughing
