Re: THE NEW CHANGES

I wonder how many who quit when losing would do that in real life. Come to my home and play cards but if you are losing curse throw the cards and leave in a huff. Seriously. Why does this have to be different behavior just because you are in my home on a computer playing cards with me??? I have lots...

Re: THE NEW CHANGES

Oh that will be great. right now it is so hard to get people to play social. In fact I have often been treated poorly when I sub because I am not rated in that game. Most players feel a sub has no say in having a bot or not for a partner or playing fair or not just because the sub is not rated. If t...

Re: THE NEW CHANGES

Why all the banter about something you (we players) have no control over? It is a waste of time for any of us to tell Jonas et all how to run their business. Just like telling any other business how they should consider your opinion when making decisions. It is their business and their choice. If yo...

Re: THE NEW CHANGES

I like the idea of no reset . too many people are abusing it. They throw a game and lose on purpose with certain nicknames so they can just reset them. This may still happen but hopefully not as much. Also, we now can see the quit rate and losses that are real. Play a real rating opponent or partner...

hiding stats with player needs to upgrade

I really get tired of seeing this in people's profile hiding their ratings. Especially prevalent in backgammon. They play over 200 games in the past few years but I cannot see their win/loss ratio or rating. If you do not make them upgrade before playing then they have an advantage over those of us ...

auto play used to "throw" game & lose

auto play is great in some instances ....like you have no cards that will catch and are nil you can autoplay and stretch for a few seconds HOWEVER, many are using it now to help the opponents win. You sit and after game has started rated hit autoplay and go off. I think some do it when they have ano...

ban the winning players during game

if one of the winners gets disconnected this gives the losing opponents a quick way to save themselves the loss. They can ban the remaining winner and then abandon the game before you can get a guide or sub you are kicked and BANNED out of your game and you lose your win. This has been happening mor...

Re: KICK AND BAN BE REMOVED

I think the kick and ban is good when used appropriately. However, there is a glitch that allows them to kick and ban opponents in the game when the game has been paused or if the op is lagging. Once they kick one op they bot it and then can kick the other. This now allows them to take over the game...

Re: abandon game when ops bid 12 to lose

Okay it happened again last night. Game was well underway. I think it was even our second game with same players. Suddenly ops bid 12 and 1 for a moon they did not have. Next hand they bid 6 and 7 for another moon they did not have. I called a guide in to complain this was unfair. Guide says what ca...

This thread was about intentional losing not about guides kicking. I am not referring to one particular game or one night. This problem of intentionally throwing a game is what is my concern. I have had the same player return with different nics and do it again and again on purpose. The guide said "...

abandon game when ops bid 12 to lose

:x I am tired of ops bidding 12 when they are losing just to get the game abandoned. (It is a common tactic to avoid losing any points.) If you do not want to lose points on your rating then play unrated social. I do not think it is fair to have us keep abandoning games just because you want to thro...

I get spades and other games no problem. I have tried when I am signed on to aol and also simultaneously have inter...
