Phoxtrot, problem is that your 'bug' report is not related to Heat, it doesn't appear in Heat's bug reports


Bruno
Devs can do things about people using the special in-game concede but nothing about the standard concede and the booting of out-of-time people.
So that's why I created a framework report because that needs to be solved first.
If you create a report for Heat, It will get flagged as won't fix or not a bug since there is nothing they can do.

This is what happened already to multiple related Heat bug reports and suggestions like :

We have the same king of problem with championship points : Heat specific reports about it like https://boardgamearena.com/bug?id=108708 got closed because you first need a framework change.

Ah ok, thanks for your answer, Phoxtrot ;-)


On the 4 or 5 of my last races, I just won +1 because of bad losers.
I think I will stop playing Heat on BGA, so.

I play mainly turn based, and haven't had a problem with Arena games this season. Not sure if it's different for real time though.

I've read quite a bit of this thread AND put in a suggestion before that last place should have a concede option after 50% completion to give the quitters an easy out without screwing winners.
Feel like this is killing the game here I've only been matched 3* this week and TWO games end with a quit/boot after I'd won or was a corner ahead near the line.

Arena real-time definitely has significantly less quitters than normal real-time races, however they're still out there in a higher number than you see at any other game. I also imagine I see significantly less quits than I otherwise would because I have a significant number of people blocked from previous quits.

It definitely would help matters if there was an option for players to concede earlier, but there doesn't seem any appetite for it from the devs/publisher.

Not that it's acceptable behaviour regardless, but I've had people tell me in chat they quit because it's a waste of time them playing on when they can't possibly win, so I suspect the option to concede earlier would help matters, but not completely solve the issue. As for example what you say about player's quitting on the last turn or after you've already won has nothing to do with them having to play for a significant amount of time in a game they can't possibly win, the option to concede would literally appear for them next turn, and they still quit, in fact I've seen people quit games when they already had the option to concede.
