Our webmaster, Raz, has added a new feature when reporting games:
How the game result should be handled:
Don't count this as a ladder game
(If checked this result will be visible in your profile, but won't affect your ladder standings)
The game was forfeited
(Please select this checkbox if the game was forfeited by your opponent)
The first is great for veteran players when tutoring newbies, or when you just feel like a friendly noncompetitive game. Note, this option needs to be established in writing by either a forum post, PM or an email thread, to avoid misunderstandings at the conclusion of the game, if there is a dispute over the status of the game and no such evidence exists the game will be considered to have been a normal ladder game.
The second is self-explanatory, but should also help with opponents who go AWOL midway through a game.
Nice job, Raz!
