Rematches: I suggest a rule.

    Listen, if both players are like minded and OK with being locked into a rematch then I see no issue with the suggestion, but even in your scenario there are other valid reasons for declining a rematch like a tournament starting, a friend they were waiting for (and killing time by playing a casual game) coming on line, not having time for a longer game but being OK to move onto shorter ones etc.  (I'm sure there are many more).

    Assuming they're running away based on the scenario you described is still an assumption.

    Yeah, guys, that would be a killer feature to add one day...

    "Play a series:

    3 game 

    5 game

    10 game

    Where you can pick just like you can adjust your ratings and time control settings.

    That would be really cool in my opinion.

    What do you guys think?

    Ok, I'm working on a little connect the dots here.

    If you want a rematch, I am assuming you

    Lost the first game. You probably want a rematch because you are upset about the loss, And you want revenge.

    Reality: this is a game! Instead of getting upset and spamming the rematch button, click the analysis button and figure out why you lost. Hope I helped.

    no. there's a big difference between people who you know and with whom you interact in real life and the completely anonymous avatars you encounter while playing internet blitz/bullet. it's not the same thing at all.

    obviously it's some human being behind some screen somewhere, but you have no information about this person whatsoever. or at least you're not supposed to have any information about them. you cannot talk with and/or interact with someone in real life and not have at least some information about them. and it's usually a considerable amount actually.

    I also don't understand why people would care all that much about rematches in the context of internet blitz/bullet

    for 99% of us it doesn't really mean anything. it's supposed to be fun/entertainment.

    +1.

    Emotion motivates quite a few rematch requests!

    I play 10 minute Blitz. I almost always accept one rematch (having either won or lost the first game) if there are no external factors (need a break, wife needs help with the dinner, etc.). If the opponent wants a third game and the first two were not fun, I'll chat "sorry - no rematch - I need a break".

    Thanks for proving my point. Whether you feel you have enough data about them to be able to "judge" them or not doesn't change anything about the fact they are a human being, just as I said. So saying, "no" to an established fact just won't cut it.

    Thread title should be:

    You should be forced to accept rematches
