General > Rankings, meeples and achievements



Stephanie E.:
A draw is a tie.  It's net effect should be nill.  No gain, no loss.  No statistics should be altered by this outcome.  The formatting for these games is that you are punished for a draw.. your points are reduced, your ranking affected, your winning streak is wiped clean, you loose all the points required to enter a game.  The spirit of a "draw" is not viewed as such on this site.  Why is that?  I am sure there must be some reason... I hope there is a good reason...

Jamie A.:
Same consequences as well when an animation gets stuck and prevents the game from being completed, even though the code knows there is a stuck animation.

UPDT: After thinking about this for more than that nano-second  ???  the stuck animation is actually worse because I'm the one who has to quit the game, therefore I lose and take the big hit not the small one. But the other consequences are the same.

Iris S.:
I wondered about the effects of a draw, too. I get that your ranking changes. A draw against a lower ranked player is not an achievement. But I hate that the streak is broken.

Why has this issue not been dealt with? Players should NOT be losing points or having winning streaks broken because of a draw. A draw is a tie for winner in a two-player game. Both players win. So if this is counting negatively against the players, it is unethical.

Or both players lose.... It is just the way you take it. Not such a big deal.
