However, the simple fact that a player or a person has the RIGHT to do something does not make it the CORRECT or MORAL or ETHICAL or JUST thing to do.
...The ONLY practical way to resolve this issue. And let me further state that I would accept EITHER way that this would go - either make provisions for a sub to be allowed, or else totally ban subs from participating in a game, or anything else in between. My only request would be that the decision be applied uniformly across the board.Vidurr wrote:And if HW were to address some of the concerns with a software update, then it would no longer be a Guide issue, there is no inconsistency !
As to your questions, Ice, Vidurr has answered them perfectly as far as I can see!
And XtesterX, I can only repeat my previous statements that situations like YOU are describing would happen with such a low incidence that they would not be a real problem. The point being, is it fair to have a rule that allows YOU to avoid playing ONE game with ONE person you dislike while inconveniencing DOZENS of players who end up getting stuck with bots as partners? Hmmm... YOU having to play a game AGAINST a player you dislike, or ME being stuck with a bot as my PARTNER for an entire game??? At least in YOUR case, YOU have a chance to get a little REVENGE against this person you despise so much, whereas I am relegated to playing out a game that I have practically NO CHANCE to win. AND you still have the partner of your choice playing WITH you!!!
WHICH of us is being more selfish here???
