A case will be opened. This is a very interesting triple chase case and should arrive very instructive to everyone on the site about this issue of double/multiple chasing. Thank you for posting it, Angelos353.
Yes thanks for posting Angelos353. I do wonder why you did NOT include that you were in Draw Refusal when you reported me-CR ? I did request that you include this IF you were to report this match. As far as I can see it is in chat at the beginning of your video. I myself deleted my video due to no claim being made yesterday-- My Mistake ! MT CR was playing under draw refusal rules .
The second type of draw refusal is a no-progress draw and occurs in a game in which one or both sides have the potential to win but no improvement is being made by either side. If one player requests a tie, at any time in the game, and is refused, then it is the responsibility of the player who refused the tie to take the offensive and to try to advance the game toward a resolution. If he does this, then the draw situation is deemed over. If he does not, and also does not accept a second tie request ten minutes after the first one (see Article 3.4.2 on "Ten Minutes"), he will be subject to the penalties listed at Article 3.2 below.
3.1.3 Progress/Advancing the Game: As stated above, the burden to advance the game falls on the player refusing the draw after a tie request is made. An attack will often be evidence of this, but not always. For example, lottoing a low-level piece or two in an endgame situation may not be viewed as advancement. On the other hand, not attacking is usually evidence of non-advancement, but again not always. The player steadily pushing a multiple piece army to his opponent's side of the board may still be seen as advancing the game even without yet attacking. In summary, the MT expects to see the player who refuses a draw request to exhibit solid progress after refusing the tie request.
3.1.4 The Basic Draw Rule: It does not matter if either player has better units or more units (i.e., superior material), no one "deserves to win" if he cannot capture the flag or all of his opponent's pieces.
I still fail to see how my opponent progressed game/match with out attacking ? They were the one to decline 2 draw requests. I agree Angelos353 should get pts back that is all !!!! I choose to see this as a draw. I could have just rolled back and sat on FLAG with superior pieces. Having exchanged one of the miners. I noticed this yesterday( discussion about this rule and test run of it) and feel it has merit in this case. I tried to add comments by Notrom , The Prf.,Wog, and Napo1 from the discussion on this but was blocked-images to large but most can refer back to and see a variety of opinions on D/M chasing.
There was a lot of discussion about D/M chasing I will not add more to it other then to restate my opponent was in Draw Refusal First before this situation occurred.I have posted that MT has a difficult job and am pleased they are here whether cases go my way or not.
The only other evidence that I may have are the note I sent to Angelos353 about match and their draw refusal . I also reached out to a few and asked their thoughts on match/circumstances they seemed a bit confused as well as myself. I see CR shuffling back and forth not much chase. NO intervention by site all moves getting no error message and waiting for my opponent to progress match per rules. Since I noticed an ex-MT member having an issue with draw refusal maybe rules are not that clear ? Where is Mr. Tim when ya need him ? LOl---- That's my side of the coin you guys--MT/Communinty . I would add an ex-player suggested I contact customer care and ask for CR acct be shut down/deleted. Thus Angelos353 not receiving their or my pts. After I got done laughing about this I told the ex-player I was not ready to pick up my ball and go home-yet ! I did mention to the ex-player that when I was working in Education it was a tactic parents/guardians would use to keep the student from having an expulsion/suspension on their record. A bit extreme I feel but folks like to work the rules or angles--human nature maybe ?
