Actually, this is a thread to try to keep anybody from having to put up with Shit over this.
Everybody seems to be in agreement that games that have Voting to end as an option, a vote to end is fine. What leaves a nasty taste is a how a vote can just come about with zero warning in a game with 10+ players, and over 40% of the game left to go.
Coming up with Critera so that ANY player can ahead of time what could tigger a vote, there would be less surprise and a player could see things happening in the game so he could prepare for it.
Havok would have to administrate ZERO, this is just for players so they can see oh the game has reached 75% of turns played, or there are less than 7 players in a game, or whatever. Its just wrong that with no warning a game can come to an end 6-5 by a timely poll, that favors one or two players. This is really could turn into a Fast starting races reward vs slow starting races punishment.
Voting is valid, but abuse of the vote is wrong. This isn't any different than when I figured out the seam problem wrote Tim, and host .47 was created. The abuse had been around for years, nobody had bothered Tim to fix it, so everybody just lived with it. This is the perfect time to resolve what some think is fair vs what some think is abuse, and put it to rest. Nothing shuts people up faster than set of rules.
Oh an on your little 7-3 vote, you really need to drop it as it was already PROVEN, that at least 1 Vote was NOT from a player, and another Vote was proven to be a player who voted to end the game because he Read the post that the game was OVER. So sorry that poll was HEAVILY TAINTED.
So real Vote is 5-4, sorry a 5-4 vote sure shows a lot of interest left in a game with 50 turns left.
Unless you are saying well, its ok to have a little cheating involved in the game, as long as the numbers work out in the long run.
Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they made a difference.
The US Marines don't have that problem.
