Time out! A way to escape from defeat?

So often people chose “time out” instead of “resignation”. How do you feel? I understand that sometime people might suddenly have to take care some other things but when in losing situation, purposely choosing “time out”, it seems to be a way of refusing accept defeat.
Admittedly I myself did once because I believed that I wasn’t deserve that loss, and I open stated my reason. Now I think I was wrong. Will never do that again.

You still get the loss from a timeout, there’s no escape :slight_smile:

true. but i wonder if time out score differently. i am new to this place so i don’t know for sure. just wondering.

Nope it counts the same :slight_smile:

In addition, it’s really rude and disrespectful to your opponent because it makes him/her wait for the timeout.
