No one likes losing. It's perfectly normal to D/C when you're losing, especially when the opponent might be using a cookie cutter team.
Ive actually found one situation where I think its okay to DC. Gloaters. These are people who know they will win the next turn, and intentionally delay. I wait 30 seconds. if they don't move, I DC. I don't like to, but it gets to a pointSplinter_Within posted...
? No im pretty sure it doesnt work that way. When people DC on me, there's a delay of about 1 match before it gives me the win. Ive recorded it and it happens like that every time. This isnt 5th gen o.O
Or is this some kind of silly joke thread? Its too early for jokes x_x
Other than the points tallied up from the next round win, I'm not anymore in the positive. Sometimes it records it but it says something different about the player connection being lost. I don't remember but next time it happens I'll write it out
Oh yeah, I've seen that but its rare and weird. ive only had it happen that way when the player DCs at the start of a doubles or triples turn, and the error comes at the end of the animations. I assume that has something to do with the server timing out. Most of the time though when you get the error you mentioned, its not actually someone intentionally DCing, and was instead caused be a server issue.
The servers are notoriously glitchy. If you've ever seen it tell you that they could not find another trainer for a free singles match or a wonder trade, its the same issue. --- Friend Code: 2707-2146-0610 Ditto, Kecleon, Lillipup
In rated battle, if the other player disconnects. You get a win.
If you aren't getting the win, usually takes 5-10 mins to update, then they didn't disconnect. It's probably your Internet.
EDIT: fixed grammar
it could be my internet. it happens more when I'm on my jobs Wi-Fi. It's siMilar to a player disconnection notice but I don't think it actually mentions that I've lost the connection?
It's funny how people really care about their W/L record, there's a forfeit option for god's sake. Not a lot of people have respect if they're anonymous.
my w/l record has me negative like thirty something over my wins. but I changed a lot if things and I hit 1530 last night, point being you're right w/l means nothing. --- currently playing: Ff: lightning returns, pokemon y, beyond two souls, DMC. pokemon fc: 0490-6475-3119 ign: Michael
