When would you say is a good time to forfeit?

I mean, I don't want to make it seem like I am rage quitting, but at the same time, when I see that the match is practically over, I don't also want to drag it out, so around how far into a match would it be reasonable to forfeit.

There's a wisdom and dignity to be had in realizing when you have no chance of victory. Professional chess/go/shogi players are the same way.

When you truly feel that no matter what you do, you're going to lose the match.

I agree, but it seems like people complain a lot when their opponent forfeits. I mean, I never had a problem with it, even if they do it right off the bat.

It's not like they disconnect or anything.

You have every right to forfeit when you see fit. If you think the other person's going to be offended you could offer a "gg" or something before doing it, but really it's you taking the loss. You're not obligated to stick around to have the loss actually play out if you know it's going to happen either way.

So you ARE outnumbered, cakesniffers.

when the battle isn't fun anymore and you know for sure you're going to lose.
if i know i'm going to lose but i'm still having fun, i keep playing
I'm tired of everyone I know, of everyone I see, on the streets and on TV.

I just think some people need to learn that there's a difference between a rage quit and a forfeit.

in most cases, but not all. When all of your sweepers and attacking based pokemon are down and you're left with defensive or supports that can't deal a lot of damage.

If you forfeit its not a rage quit.

Rage quit requires disconnecting your wireless / closing system / etc

If you hit run away to forfeit the match you're fine, when we complain about ragquitting its when they kill the connection and we get a "lost connection to other player" message.
