So, who thinks this would be a good idea? A quasi-resign option by which, if both players in a game agree, the game can end with a neutral Draw message and no rank gained or lost. It would allow players who care about their rating to end long games where both sides are bored but keep on playing so as not to lose. It would allow for sportsmanship in cases where one player has begun the game with no TC or a similarly game-ending bug: both players could honourably exit and try again with no damage suffered. It would give me lots of work to do updating the Online Code of Honor. Post with your opinions!

(Come on, stretch your brain for those R-suggestions!)

Giskard: BrianManahan = Tsar_Ivan_VII? Discuss.
Giskard: BrianManahan = Tsar_Ivan_VII. It's no longer a question.
Giskard: Isn't BrianManahan liable to be banned anyway for being the smurf of a banned forumer (Tsar_Ivan_VII)?
BrianManahan: I'm not sure who that is, Giskard, but I see what you is trying to do. I don't smurf >:O

Yes, that would be nice. Especially for any treaty players. However, in normal rush games, the games usually (usually) don't go past 20 minutes or so.

Also, you don't need the draw option for glitches, if you have a glitch at the beginning of the game, it's not rated.

Would be a great way to end games which are just plain agonizing because of lag. You start out, and before you even get to colonial, the game is grinding to a stuttering halt from lag. Playing further means it will only get worse as more military units join th fray. Instead of one team resigning, make it so we can declare it a draw.

Just find a way to prevent people from deliberately lagging out the game so they can abuse the draw option...

It'd be great for all the games where my friend lags really bad or loses connection and stuffs the game up.

And I suppose it would be useful for games where both players have Spies, Blockade and a good economy. You couldn't raid or sneak attack so it's basically just who could spam the most people without getting bored.

R14: Which is the most valuable card? Sorry if that's been one already, I haven't checked all the threads.

That would be cool. I once did a 3v3 and all my teammates quit within 5 seconds of game. thats what i call unfair.

Yeah I had that same situation, I'm not sure my opponents would of agreed to be honourable though.

Maybe it should be auto-draw if two or three of the other players resign within the first 4 mins. There would be no combat by then so it wouldn't be because they died from a rush (most hardcore rushes hit at 4:30 or a bit later I'm pretty sure)

I think this would be a great idea, especially if one or more of the players have to go somewhere. I'd appreciate it.

R14: Would it be a good idea to be able to chat to specific players in FFA? (talking to someone without anyone else knowing about it)

I think a draw option would be good, a lot of my games end up as just me and my opponent spamming colonial units t one another until one of us gains soe sort o economic advantage like a very good raid.

I think it'd be great, especially to end those stalemates that sometimes end up happening.

Yeah, I'd like to see some sort of option like that in games like AoE3. Either for lag, or someone suddenly needing to leave, or TC's disappearing, it would make the game a bit less irritating at times.

Both quotes suck in my opinion. They are not funny or "legendary", not sigworthy.

So I wouldn't call your quotes "legendary" either.
The only ones who find your first quote funny are you and your "fanboys".

@eside
Lol I think I mine is better
Mine appeals to a broader audience while yours appeals to the higher level vanilla players who play spanish and know how to defeat a rush .
Of which we don't have a whole lot of players here

Yeah, that quote is definatly the best one have ever seen.

I didn't said my quotes are "legendary", but some people, like dabottle, consider some of them funny, and then add them to their sigs. You can appreciate why he considers it funny, doesnt matter if you dont. But i see no funnnyness in "15jan>20strel", lol.

Ok, I don't think your quotes are funny either so I guess I just owned you.
