Re: Question about the Pirate game.
If you're in the lobby, yes. Actually the credits are not taken until you reach the first round, so if you are booted or you lose your connection going into the game, you never lost your money in the first place.
-You either get booted because you did not move for a certain amount of time
-You left the game on your own
-You lag up, and get booted; which is pretty much the first way.
I believe Kimmie is correct when she says you lose the credits when you enter round one, after the go, and you're playing. I don't think they take them from you in the lobby. But if you're in the middle of round one, or any round, or inbetween, and get booted, you lose the 21 credits and anything else you earned. You don't get them back.
If you join a game your credits are gone as soon as you click it. But if you get booted or leave while still in the lobby you get your credits back. However if you are in the middle of the game and you leave you do not get your credits back. I've tested it. Also if it wasn't like this you could join the game, buy something so you have less than 21 credits then play the game without paying.
