It really, really, really irks me when I see people having 150+ correspondence games open and going on vacation, especially while they keep playing live games.
If you don’t have time to play so many games, don’t commit to so many games. It’s not my fault that you have hoarding tendencies.
And if you really have to go on vacation, it’s literally seconds of your time to ask politely in the game chat. And if you ask, most probably I’ll just pause the game or use my vacation time to help you out.
But, if you really don’t have time to play, consider resigning from the game. The game being in correspondence time settings doesn’t mean you get to drag it forever (and it can go literally forever, since vacation time fills up periodically). You clinging onto your rank is not more important than my time.
The solution is not me to stop playing tournaments, which I’m sure a number of people will readily suggest, the solution is people learning to respect others.
I know this will never happen, but I wish using vacation time would be forbidden in tournaments.
(Yes I’m ranting, I’m feverish with a sore throat but also people with no manners get on my nerves).
