It would be really nice if the ladder withdrawal button would have informed me that this was a automatic resignation on all the active nice ladder games. I thought that I would be one these “-1” people that were already some of my opponents. Besides the temporary fact that I lost 200 rating points, I feel bad for my opponents.
I withdrew because I did not want to start any other long-term games, and I cannot prevent this on the ladder, but I did want to finish the started ones. Note that I waited with the withdrawal for a moment where all my opponents were either not on the ladder anymore or ranked higher on the ladder than me.
