Sometimes someone seek a game and then don’t start the game.
Today it happened for me three games in row with different people and one was unranked.
I was going to write something long about pretty much any reason I could think of why people would do this but it all could be summarized in two simple manners.
- Do not seek a public game unless you intend to play it then and there.
- If somethings happens or you really do feel you have a reason to not play with whomever accepted your game, whatever reason, write in chat and let your opponent know.
I get that in other things, a too bad or too good opponent will give a bad game but here we mainly playing against ourselves and the rating system is mainly performance based instead of result based so there no real risk.
According to the forum tool there no topic similar to this one, so maybe it was just a bad day and not a problem. But it could also mean it a problem that been in the dark for too long.
