bunch of stuff

it is black and white.  you either believe you can win and should continue playing or you don't.  if the majority or 4 out of 5 don't think you can, then I don't see how a team oriented game should be held hostage by 1 guy.  teamer is a team game.  if this person dont wanna agree to this kind of team decision-making process, then dont play teamers!

these other examples are people who are "succeeding against the odds" and actively choose to continue playing.  they aren't sitting here saying, "thank god the rules forced me to continue playing, cuz we won."

you honestly think we need a rule to determine for people that they should continue playing?  it should be a decision up to the players and team as a whole, without some absurd veto in the hands of 1 outlier.

1.  you join a staging room
2.  you see your teammates
3.  live w/ the team and their decisions (attacks, building, concede or w/e)

it's not about persuading the 1 holdout.  the 1 holdout often just doesn't care and will keep playing until their civ is dead.  this has happened to me on 2 occasions.  they r just wasting peoples time.

honestly, nothing you have said is really persuasive to me in a team game setting.  people can play duels, play CTON, they dont have to play teamer games if they cant handle team decision making.

Recent Example: Last night a teammate of mine built the Oracle.  Another teammate was angry that we took Monarchy instead of Horseback Riding with the Oracle.  We were winning the game on points, but the angry player just typed "gg" and instantly dropped from the game.  Our team had not discussed conceding or agreed to concede.

At the vote screen, we talked with each other and just one person on our team wanted to play it out; the rest of us wanted to concede.  This one player insisted on continuing, and it was obvious that he was refusing to concede simply because a member of the other team also had left the game.  (The other team's player left because he was tired of dealing with my one teammate who refused to concede.)  In other words, the one holdout player was attempting to force the game to be scrapped.  It didn't work - after about 15 minutes he finally agreed to concede.  Still, we ended up wasting a ridiculous amount of time watching one player argue with his teammates about whether to continue playing.

Hell, I honestly cant believe whats written here!
The problem sint the 1 guy who dont want concede a game which he is winning or at least got good odds or whatever - WE PLAY LADDER TO PLAY GAMES TO END! - thats main reason for ladder to even exist!

The problem is the guy who just quit like that!
U should not discuss whether to concede or whatever but u should all report the guy to stop such bullshit quitting!

Yes, that's an example of very bad sportsmanship.  As a league, we really need to work on this.

The reason I started playing ladder in the first place was actually because I wanted to play more serious games without people quitting as soon as something went wrong. Isn't it ironic? Don't you think?

I love challenges! Trying to turn an impossible game around is so much fun!  :) Why would you want to quit when the game becomes interesting (=challenging)!?

I can easilly understand why the players on the WINNING team lose interest.

I've actually never finshed any SP game... The reason? Because when I start winning it get's too easy and it's no longer interesting.

Nothing about this ladder is serious, professional, or worth associating with.  It has fallen and died.

No, I think anger has taken over the league.  Why is everyone so angry and grouchy all the time?

Ask people like DarkwoodDub and Zara who map check every single game and make the whole concept of "ranked" games seem ridiculous.

I'm done with this association of cheaters.

this.  half the games im in, are filled w/ people bitching and complaining.

i'd like to see people suspended just for being whiners, tbh.  so at least i dont have to read the complaining/BS.

Everyone is angry and grouchy because they either

1. are burnt out
2. have spend a ridiculus ammount of time playing with about the same people and they still don't get the respect they think they diserve
3. are playing anc ss all the time and it is driving them mad
4. they said that was the last time they would die to a warrior and they died again
5. some noob told them that it is better to work a flood plain instead of a forest hill when building a worker and you are not expansive
6. they just slaved 6 chariots before making a second worker and lost all to archers
7. they cannot fit 5 games in an hour
