Of course, if you block them, they will just sign up with a new account.
Block their IP? - Useless since most people are given a new IP each time they turn on their computer.
Best to just get over it and move on.
It has happened to me a few times (Like LongIslandMark, I've rarely had this happen). I just went and posted in their profile 'Leaving the game does not prevent you from losing, I can wait for my point. :)', then I find something constructive to pass the time like spreading my charm and wit in the forums.
And what if you just resign and start a new game? After all you knew that game was won, so what do you lose? Just a few rating points (virtual rating points) which you will eventually recover in case you are that good.
The point is, I dont want to move on: It is them who have to resign instead of being that kind of scum.
I agree. It seems like this practice is getting more prevalent. The idea of forcing a response to a "win button" like RSenekal suggested is a good one. Typically, when some one abandons a game on me, I look at their profile and see a list of people complaining about the same thing in other games.
It seems like Chess.com is losing its quality. I've been subscribing for a while, and may start looking elsewhere if this gets worse.
At least, for subscribers, can't you offer that kind of automatic win button?
Are you talking about people who don't start or the people who walk away after hanging their queen.
In many games where my opponent rage quit, I have just resgned and moved on.
I think people who don't start the game desevea loss. I would have quite a few losses this way, but if the game has started it's pretty unfair to the person who is ready to play. Some times I will get matched with someone who will abort several times in a row.
