Just to make sure I understand,
- When they opponent timeouts they’ll have to start the ladder again from the bottom.
- A win by timeout does not change your postition in the ladder (no matter how hard-fought, time spent and/ or deserved a win it would be looking at the board).
The first game link here shows my timedout opponent in the ladder unchanged (as am I), what am I missing?
Second link is from an ongoing game but looking at the opponent’s stats I see they timedout a number of times without any consequences as far as I can see.
All in all playing in the 19x19 ladder is not as rewarding as I thought it would be and definitely not as much fun.
