 Post subject: How about a penalty for timing out in PR?

It seems like if I start winning a board, my opponent stops bothering to send in turns. Then I "win" by time out, which I believe is fewer points.

It seems like this is unsportsmanlike, rather than coincidence that the player just didn't have time. It seems that the win points could be the same, since a two-account cheater could be awarded much less for defeating his low-rank "dummy" account. Also, there could be a fractional multiplier for playing the same opponent over and over.

PR should try to address "quitting" somehow. I find it to be the weakest part of MAN: that players can't "Concede" a game properly - but instead just let the game time out for a virtual tie.

1. You get the same amount of points for a time-out win. The other guy gets a loss and the appropriate loss points for his rank.

2. There is a surrender option, but of course no one likes to use it. They just quit playing like stupid assholes.

the pb is when a game is broken and you can't repair it,
you have to wait up to oponent win by time out !
