Demotion?

Postby WarSmith » 19 Oct 2016, 12:01

Hi, I'm a platinum who was away from the site for a while.
I still qualify as a platinum classicist on all rules except the 'surrenders'.
To cut a long story short I had two major life events and had to drop the game.
I took steps to try to find replacements (this can be evidenced if you look at the forum games I had to leave at the same time), but unavoidably - I still have a couple of surrenders in my last 20 games.
I don't know if these can be excused. They are obviously explainable. This was before mobile play was so easy!
I never surrender because the game doesn't go my way...
I'm playing a lot of games right now (I'm back for good) to try to correct this statistic.
I'm ok with a demotion if that's what is appropriate here - but I'm really keen to play classicist games right now!!! (And like I said the 'no surrenders in 20' will soon be fixed).
Thanks for your consideration!
WS.

The biggest challenge will be finding a game to play in :)

I have started a new game, please see the forum. If you try to sign up, I won't ignore you or try to pretend that you are not a Classicist as that would be unethical, wouldn't it ;)

Now fixed!
No surrenders in the last twenty.
Also got the Star ambassador status :)

No need for demotion now! I'm stable in Platinum.

Hey WarSmith - sorry I totally missed this thread. Thanks for self reporting.

Since you now have 20 games since your last surrender, I think it's appropriate to leave you where you are. Even had we sanctioned you for the surrenders, the timeline under the Constitution would've been:

1st surrender - public sanction, demotion to bronze
2nd surrender - ejection from the Classicists
5 game since last surrender - heartfelt apology, public re-commitment to Classicist principles, readmission at Bronze
on and on
20 games since last surrender - triumphant restoration to Platinum, your name cleared and your glory restored.

We missed a few steps, but the end result is the same. With 20 games since your last surrender, I'm comfortable leaving things as they are.

Thanks again for raising the question though.

Cheers,
jon
