I am actually intrigued by this game's chat. Do people really not consider it poor sportsmanship to bitch about how slow your opponent is playing (I don't mean people playing intentionally slow, I mean bitching because they aren't making instantaneous decisions and just mindlessly clicking, the entire game lasted 14 minutes and 44 seconds including picks, and was 8 turns. Picks took 2 minutes and 19 seconds, the 8 turns took an average of 93 seconds.

The guy bitches about me playing slow. I respond back with trash talk, he calls me out as being "unsportsmanlike". Personally I consider bitching about someone playing "slow" to be less sportsmanlike than trash-talk after winning a game in response to said griping but am curious if this view is the norm or the exception.

What he said was uncalled for, but your heated reply wasn't exactly necessary either. Defending yourself is okay, but retaliating is taking it too far. I can certainly understand your frustration and your eagerness to beat him but it's still unsportsmanlike. I'd say that you both were "in the wrong" in this situation, but both times were only something minor so I'd just let it slide.

I was by no means offended or anything, I was just mostly amused that he'd call me out as unsportsmanlike after his first comment, which made me wonder if that mindset was the norm or not.

Your first comment is the level of respect players generally treat each other.

This is game like any other! People are primarily amused more by Levels, Points and Clicking feedback (as well easy wins) rather than strategic aspect and thinking. Warlight may call it strategic, but that does not include firsthand the community.

Just play around and once you find decent player and/or opponent, add him to friend-list, ask to play more and soon you have close-community of people who are worth playing against/with.

Its a common problem in Real-Time people expect you to commit in minutes, despite Direct or Auto boot may be longer! Normative way to approach is Direct/auto boot determines game speed. Although it is not sportsmanship to delay game on purpose, badly no-one of us can detect that, as one can and may take the whole time to analyse-revise his actions and moves with the remaining time and there is nothing wrong with it.

Also Multi-day players are generally more strategic, as fast-commit-speed is not issue there!
