Remove the option to concede
I really hate how easy people give up and concede ...
This really should not be an option ...
(also selling the last IP should be no option)

It is just a game ... sure in a real war you concede before wasting lives, but in a game?

That would be like a Football team giving up after 60 Minutes just because it is 3 goals behind

I think its not nice to be in a team that concedes but it also is bad to be in the "winning" team if the other team concedes :(

and, not to forget, if the concede option would be removed a team could concede by not defending anymore

I dont know any other teambased game with the option to concede, for a good reason

I always tell my team to not concede and instead put up an awesome all-in last push some where just to see what damage we can do. And it can actually turn the tides pretty often.

So yeah. Unless you're complaining the other team is conceding so you can't kill them there isn't that much of an issue with conceding.

Normally I would be for more freedom of choice, but this really irritates me, so I'll have to agree. Once the option to concede is imbedded in someone's mind, they've pretty much given up, and I've seen so many games come back from the brink. If half of the team is conceding, theyre likely not even going to be trying anymore. If the other side is beating you that badly, just wait the five minutes for them to finish you off. Don't ruin it for the rest of us with your defeatism.

its such a blast if you win with a final push while under heavy sige...
if you can gather all those who want to concede to just push the the mainbase of the other team you have the chance to turn a match ...
but many people like to concede instead ...

and even if you not can turn, both teams can have a load of fun with a last huge fight at the only stronghold ...

just because your team is not winning it doesnt mean you can not have fun

if you have fun (even when losing) then you win in anyway no matter who turned out to be the winner on the leaderboard

It is a pity that some seems to only feel fun if they win ...
I feel fun if I play

Losing as an alien is not fun. All that happens is you get spawn killed for 5 minutes.

'Cept when your entire team goes Gorge. That's funny.

Remember, YOU are a voice on your team. If YOU think your team has a chance, even if it seems hopeless, speak up. Motivate the troops! That's what I do and it's lead to awesome games. So stop complaining on the forums and go kill things like champions.

It's mind-boggling how many times I see teammates try to concede when we still have 2 bases. But then even if we didn't have concede there's still F4.

Better to concede and get a new game for both sides
OMEGA79[DethOIVI] May 20, 2013 @ 5:34am 
I always speak up ... many times i also provide a tunnel close to main base (I like aliens)
rarely helps

I'm agree to remove the option to concede ! We don't need to concede , i'm here to play, not to win all matchs ! French concede all time (i'm french) WTF !
OMEGA79[DethOIVI] May 21, 2013 @ 12:53pm 
today i played a match and the marines did concede even if they had 2 bases (close to lose 1 of the bases) and they did make a lot preassure with their exos on one of our hives ...
the game was not totaly open, aliens had a little advantage ... but they could have turned it, the match was not lost for sure

Concede prevents servers from clearing out due to stacking. Its much better than the alternative.
OMEGA79[DethOIVI] May 25, 2013 @ 2:10pm 
I do not think so ...
anyways ... I just quit this game, to sad i can not sell it ...
I move back to ET:Quake Wars ... much more teamplay and no concede there
unbelieveable that there still so many servers and a pretty good playerbase in a game as old as ET:QW
There are games when you are so behind that short of people turning on aimbots, you cannot win. When you're just starting shotguns and the Aliens are busting out Cara + Adren + Silent Fades in large numbers, the game is over.

Or when everyone is a skulk and you see a parade of 6 ARCs with 3 duals marching on your last over.

Also, when Aliens can afford to Xeno rather than Onos you, you cannot win.

FYI: Xeno + Spore = OP!

anyway ...this is no reason ... like said before ...
you also can have fun and satisfaction in delivering a good last fight

but there is a mindeset in these times, only the winner counts ... thats BS!

Lieber stehend sterben als kniend leben
Rather die standing than living on your knees (something like that)

How is being immediately spawnkilled fun?

if the game is so far that you get killed immediatly on your spawn ... then the game is over within 20 to 30 seconds ... then the fight is over, your team is dead no need to concede ... thats no point you give there
