I mostly never concede to anyone just for no reason when i am ahead, but sometimes if I can see opponent playing basic cards and classic cards that suggest them having a bad deck I happily concede. Just feels wrong to win with my overpowered decks.
This is the main reason I encounter: my opponent’s playing an obvious quest deck (such as only 1 mana minions without an aggro theme), but I’m also playing a quest deck so they manage to get the upper hand anyway. That’s when I often see a concede.
You know what?
At least you are not complaining.
And you now feel the need to open a topic about it?! Seems like he/she succeeded in blowing your mind.
Definitely wintrading. Thats illegal in a lot of tournaments across a bunch of different games. He needs to be banned.
I never concede to them. They’re going to figure it out or get frustrated and quit. I don’t believe in going easy on new players - it makes them stronger.
From my experience, the person’s kids probably started puking, bleeding, over flooding the bath tub, making a mess in the kitchen, etc, etc, etc
I’ve done that exactly once because I made stupid mistakes and RNG saved me more than once. Too embarrassed to win and my opponent played well.
That penguin is just too cute.
This, probably a dozen people out there owe my toddler for a win
Altough I guess it probably looked like I rage quitted over a turn on cleric
I’ve done that a couple of times when I was at a rank floor and my opponent was playing a deck I didn’t hate, once guy even added me to thank me for letting him advance to rank 5 when I had lethal on board.
I don’t concede to new players because if I’m playing casual odds are I’m using a terrible meme deck that might actually lose to a turn 4 yeti.
Life is not limited to this game. He could have urgent phone call, visitors or just had to run to toilet.
That, my man, is called sportsmanship.
I do this in casual, which I never play
I’ve conceded when i was CLEARLY winning, even a turn from lethal, for a multitude of IRL reasons. In some of those situations im sure the benefeciary was confused AF. It happens, man. If i’m playing and I get an important call, or i need to move my truck, or WHATEVER, that is immediately more important than hearthstone so i concede out of courtesy. (The alternative is AFK-roping my opponent)
When i do my quests in wild ranked, I often concede even if I had secured the win.
I do this when I have a non-win quest, and my opponent has a limited collection.
This way, I give away a win that had no value to me, complete my quest, and giving a new player a chance. Win/win.
This might explained why your opponent did it too.
You play a Golden Millhouse Manastorm. You deserve to win in my books.
It’s win-trading, your opponent is trying to get your account banned permanently.
The best practice is instantly concede your next game to set the record straight.
How so ? Please explain because I fail to understand.
When I am playing casual and I am matched with a player who obviously has a much lower card quality I usually concede them the win after letting them play their cards. Just seems good mannered to me.
