ok I give up, what's the deal with forfeiting

Post by KBishop »

I have had games that were a statistical loss and hit the forfeit flag. My opponent either accepts or declines. Twice now I've had people decline my forfeit. That forced me to figure out how to use the down vote button to hopefully avoid them.

BUT I've had games where I was given the option to accept a forfeit and at other times it just popped up that my opponent conceded.

so how do I concede without my opponent having the option to reject?

First, the game progress needs to be 50% or higher. Then use main game menu (top right, three lines or "hamburger" icon) and choose concede (not quit).

Forfeit is for point games where you can give your opponent points but continue playing a new game. They can decline the forfeit, esp if you forfeit a game but not a gammon and they think they can get a gammon. Concede is where you concede the entire match, that one cannot be declined.

I have to admit that I refused a 1 point forfeit when I thought i can win gammon. But i didn't realize it was only a 1p match. My bad...

If you offer a 1 point forfeit after you have already borne off some pieces (so there is no possibility of a gammon), your opponent is not given the opportunity to refuse the forfeit.
