we had now quite a few games which were very unsatisfying for everyone because evils conceded very very early.
I’m mostly playing ToL, and there is Conceding considered as Gamethrowing and a punishable offense.
When I’m hosting FoL, I’m always like… “yes you can tell me that you want to concede, and I probably will use it in my decision when to force end the game, but there’s a good possibility I will just ignore it as host, or use it a bit later.”
What does lead to conceding, why is it allowed, and what can we do to make it misused less frequent?
Also… is there kinda a pressure to concede? Aka “hey you didn’t concede and made this game go on forever”? Or is it a very drastic way of replacing out?
Conceding early (aka D1-D3 or so) doesn’t say you’re a bad person or whatever, it just means, there is something wrong. Please let’s not witchhunt, but accept that people are misusing it, and how we can help them to do it less.
