Come on

I really can't be the only one here

How many of you have ever surrendered in a game before... by accident

and I mean like... you were winning and you knew you were winning... and that you had no plans to surrender any time soon

but SOMEHOW... somehow you manage to click on the wrong thing and surrender by accident...

Doesnt it say you have to confirm your surrender or something like that?

How do you manage?

No, if surrenders happen automatically (you don't have to accept surrenders).

Well Semice... That proves you are a real noob, consequently a true anti-elitist! Welcome among our ranks! *Claps, claps*

Not true, if you surrender a window will always pop up asking whether or not you are sure you want to surrender.

That being said, I don`t understand how you can surrender on accident.

I have to say a lot of players (I think this is on mobile) especially newer players do surrender by accident, sometimes when it's "must be accepted" they don't even realise until players start saying "I declare war on X because he is surrendering" and are quite aghast.

This happens way too often and is a very serious problem.

(Personally I play on PC and have never had a problem, but I host a lot of large games and I see this happen frequently)

On Mobile there is still a window popping up asking whether or not you want to surrender.
Doesn`t make sense. Accidental surrenders are bs, read what pops up in your face, don`t just click 'ok'.

I don't think there is always a pop up. I've surrendered before accidentally when trying to click vote to end, after someone got booted. Everyone else just carried on paying since I'd managed to even the teams up again...
Edit: I play on PC
Edit #2: I don't remember there being a pop up, but then again I am the kind of guy who will click yes or ok without thinking on pop ups to make them go away

So, what's the proposed solution here?

Maybe something like having a popup ask if you're sure you want to surrender? That's already there.

Have two popups? If you click through the first the second is probably not going to stop you.

i never surrendered by accident in a game. maybe the Problem is mainly for newbies that don't understand the meaning of surrendering (non english Speakers)? i see no way to improve the actual way surrendering works. there is always a popup that asks if you really want to surrender

just checked I have no window poping up, so yeah, Semice's error is perfectly normal and I think it also happened once to me.

How? What where the settings? I already checked "surrender happens automaticly" and a window pops up there. I also don`t see a settings on your own profile in which you can turn it off or on.

I get a popup on both the computer and the phone. If you're truly not getting a popup that would seem like a legitimate bug that should be reported. Fizzer is generally very responsive to bugs.

Unless you were playing Single-Player. Then I believe it doesn`t popup either.

its the habit man

I've played lotteries so much that I guess I must have accidentally made the habit of surrendering

Alright lemme explain my case

I was actually trying to press the "start over" button, but I pressed the surrender instead because I guess my brain's processing laziness thought that "start over" and "surrender" were the same thing... mostly because they both have an S in front of them lol

reason why I kept going and clicked yes when it made sure I was trying to surrender was because it also does the same thing when you try to start over your turn

Both buttons have a pop up thing that comes up... so since "start over" has a pop up thing, I assumed that having a pop up thing come up (even when I clicked surrender button) meant that I had chosen the "start over" option rather than surrender

Bottom line I think they should stop making a pop up window come up whenever you try and start over your turn

that way if a pop up window DOES happen to come up, you know for sure that the pop up window is for surrendering... not for when it makes sure you want to start over your turn

also I may have mistaken one's pop up window for the other because of how similar in size they are... im too lazy to read the text normally so usually I just automatically assume that I have a setting's window open by how big in size they are and also just in general how they look

new idea for solution: make start over button green for conservating your time wisely and make surrender button pink for pussies lmao

im pretty sure on 1vs1 Ladder you will always be asked when surrendering, but not always in other games

Maybe some testing is in order, maybe there's a specific type of settings where the pop-up doesn't occur. Although perhaps there's not much point if Fizzer isn't concerned enough to fix it, of course...
