Iccup is in fact a great server, but sometimes their admins can be sooo god damn frustrating and foolish.
I've been playing Random a lot lately. It's fun and makes it a bit easier to win. I'll admit it. This particular incident occurred nearly a week ago and I've been battling Iccup since.
Anyways, so I'm playing this guy and in the first 30 seconds of the game, he asks "race?" Now I don't pick random to tell you my race after you split your workers. I'd just pick a race at that point. So I ignore the guy.
He leaves. It's about 51 seconds in.
I say "Pfft, that's bullshit. If I leave as a Terran getting my gas stolen, I get a penalty. I'm lodging a complaint." So I do.
Iccup's rules say there must be a disadvantage for that rule to kick in. It never specifies the terms of said disadvantage, but it says there needs to be one. I argue he didn't know my race and thus felt he was at a disadvantage. It's not like he just randomly left, he asked my race once, didn't know and left. Iccup denies my complaint.
I appeal. As I do this, I notice a debate raging on their forums about Random. Odd timing I thought. I skim through the 20-odd pages and finally put my 2 cents in.
I later check the forums again (after the standard Iccup 2-3 day delay) to find out the admin posted four words about it. "No punish here. Closed." Now I'm outraged. I PM the guy, linking both of my threads and also linking him the thread with the 22 pages of debate, tell him to read it and tell me that this guy left for some other reason than he was at a disadvantage. I get a PM back of 2 words. "No punish".
Seriously dude. WHAT THE FUCK. I've outlined my case, and all you can fucking say is 2 fucking words? Did you even fucking watch the fucking replay? Did you fucking read the thread? DO YOU FUCKING PLAY THE FUCKING GAME??
Sorry, I needed to get that out, and it's 24 hour quiet hours so I can't shout, but seriously. I'm just pissed....
