    Is it rude to boot people from pirates?

    OK. Whenever I play a pirates game, I always prefer to play 2 on 2, so I can avoid lag ( unless my cheesy friends are on of course, then I make an exception ). Anyway, it seems that whenever I boot extra people from the game so that I can start, they keep joining and make remarks like ' You're mean! Stop boot! ' or ' Gosh that's rude to boot.. ' or something along those lines. Is it really that rude to boot? I need opinions.

    well here's my opinion..
    its not rude if you're trying to avoid lag..

    but if you make a game and you're waiting for a couple people who are friends to play with you.. and you boot the players that have already joined just to get your friends who weren't originally there in the game.. then its rude. I mean, just make a game when the friends are there, not when your waiting for them.

    And I think it's rude to boot guests just because they're.. guests.

    but i'd be nice if you tell the people WHY you're booting.

    Naw; but I know it's alot nicer when ya tell people that you can't handle more than a two verse two game because of lag issues, or because you are waiting with friends. Then again, like Piiony mentioned, why would you make the game while WAITING for your friends? If they're right there in the lobby, and just afk and you didn't know, then yeah it's alright. ;D

    Booting someone for a rude reason....is rude. I.E; They're good, they're bad, they're a guest, ect. XD

    It's not rude. The boot button is there for a reason. The only time I find it rude is when you target specific people to boot, such as guests or players better than you.

    Re: Is it rude to boot people from pirates?

    That I agree with. I don't make games when I'm waiting for friends, only when they're there, and I usually explain that the lag is bad if they begin making remarks. I never boot guests simply for the reason that they're guests, or any other players just because they're "bad". But I'm just tired of hearing that I'm a "bench" for booting someone just because the lag is pretty bad.

    Yeah it is unreasonable. Although the thing I hate more is when you boot them and they continue to join again and again.

    how many times have we encountered this? Even after you explain, they don't leave, so you boot them. Then they continue and continue to join, even after reexplaining!!

    Yup! It's difficult. Even if you explain it to them, they still try to continue to join! What to do, what to do! I guess I would say that it isn't really rude, because if you are trying to start a game and somebody joins and there could be too much lag, you boot. I guess it could be mean if it's in the wrong intention.

    I"m okay with booting - as long as a reason is given. Personally, I don't usually boot people, unless we're doing a fixed game or just friends.

    Will trade husband for Disneyland and DCA Pins!

    I hate it when people take it offensively, after i've explained, and they haven't left.. so i boot..
    Then they get upset and say they're going to report me..
    sigh.

    They report you for booting? That's got to be annoying! Thankfully when I boot people for a reason they dont report me.
