Is there a way to report a player who refuses to count, even though the games is completely over? I was winning by a huge margin. No problem to play the game until the endgame, that's his right, but even after the game was over he kept on playing inside his own territory and refusing to count. Then, my client started crashing and I got disconnected 3 times and lost the game. I don't know why that started happening. Does anyone know if there is a way to force the opponent to crash like that? Every time it crashed I connected again and re-entered the room, just to crash again. The third time it happened, by Tygem rules, I forfeited the game. The player's nickname is tks1340. Was he doing that to me? How can I report hime? Help please.

But how do I report him? And also, if there is a way to exploit bugs from refusing to count, Tygem should know, shouldn't they? Reporting bugs is a way for the community to support the server and make it better.

I'm not sure how to report players in Tygem. I can't recall if there is an admin button or something during the game. I'll pay more attention in the next game I play.

I have also run in to this bug; I didn't keep asking for counting on the same move, I made moves on dame, or responded to his doomed-to-fail invasions, then asked again. I think after 3 or 4 times asking and being refused, I got kicked. Luckily he then accepted the count the next time I asked.
If there isn't an admin button, it's another reason for me to play primarily on Fox- I've had a few problems with people not counting etc. but always an admin has come and sorted it out very quickly once notified. Very impressed with that.

On other servers, you just have to accept that it's part of online play and move on to the next game. It sucks, but what I tell myself is that it doesn't matter what the server records as a win or a loss- what is important is how I played, whether I am improving, whether I really won or lost. It does leave a sour taste in your mouth, but better to not let people like that get to you.

Interesting. I had the same problem a couple of times (maybe 2 or 3 times) and I remember wondering if some people had found a "loophole" to force this to happen. Since it only happened rarely I couldn't know for sure but the anecdotical evidence gathered in this thread would suggest something of the kind.
During play there is a "Help" button that can be used for this kind of situation (if I remember correctly). You can also type something (providing your room number) in the chatroom. If you're lucky an admin might show up.
In the end, the easiest thing to do is just to blacklist the opponent and move on.
