Of my last 10 wins (discounting one by cancellation because the game was set up wrong to start with) 8 were by resignation. I’m not saying its a bad thing, I just think that in some cases the game was even enough that resignation was not necessary. How often do you resign/force resignation?

Interesting … I wasn’t aware that I win and lose most of my games by resignation
I am similar:
I think it is natural to resign when things become lopsided, which happens quite a lot even when playing even games against people of the same rank.
Looks like i have pretty much the same as trohde and polonian, almost 50% of my games end up with resignation. not going to post a pic like that, since i’m lazy
This. And also resigning when game turns into late end game and it’s easy to see who is going to win, even if it’s with small margin. Sometimes i like to drag the game into counting if it have been long and interesting game, but usually resigning is easier than playing last 20 moves in a lost game
The graphs are a little visually misleading because they don’t show a single bar for scoring like they do for resignation and time. Instead the games ending by scoring are divided up by margin of victory. So @trohde for example actually seems to win more games by scoring, overall, than by resignation. On the other hand @trohde loses more games by resignation overall than by scoring. So he’s more likely than his opponents to resign when losing by a big margin.
So which is really more common, resignation or scoring? It would be interesting to see someone use the OGS data to chart that by rank. I would expect that games ending in resignation would increase as rank increases.

[/quote]Yes, for me it seems clear: the stronger I get, the earlier I realize when I have lost.
Oh that’s interesting, will do
Maybe I’ll break down the distribution chart into 2 different charts.
Well, it’s pretty easy to check to see if the Resign bar is over 50%. I did that when I first saw this thread to get a feel for how common of a game ending condition resignation was for him.
half of my loss are by timeout -.-
1/3 by resignation.
Only 1/6 proceed to scoring phase (and I think most of those scoring game are played in my first 2 month of go).
I have many win by resignation possibly because many close games got turned into lose by timeout.
Anyone in similar situation?
For people struggling with timeout, vote for this suggestion!
