Solutions to combat stalling / roping?
Does WotC actually do anything about players who stall / rope games anymore? Reading the forums, it seems like they cracked down on it once 3 years ago, but no longer take active measures against it.
I suggest adding a rope under the profile tab that gets shorter each time your account is reported for roping, and once your rope runs out, your account is banned. That way people know their are real consequences for their actions, and that WotC takes player conduct seriously.
In MTG Arena I get the stalling/rope daily. To combat the problem I've now taken the issue right to MtG support. Capture log, Snip/Screen shot, REPORT them!! I enjoy the game & have for years. I refuse to let people that Stall/Rope prevent me from enjoying the game win/loss. If we as good players do what we can on our end, I have faith in the support team doing their job. I would LOVE to see a report button in game to report as they do it.
This is a good idea why hasn't this happened yet, wtf. WOTC is brain dead af.
We need a solution for roping/stalling. I think the user profile idea is great, and it can help on the matchmaking process.
A very direct solution is limiting the amount of consecutive timeouts a user can do ie, when the user has 0 timers they should get a maximum of 2 timeouts unless they earn a timer.
