It appears that your opponent won't show.

It appears to me that when some players see who they are drawn against they immediately press the back button to avoid playing that opponent. It happens to me about six or seven times every couple of hours of play.
In my humble opinion they should forfeit the game. Also, why have a countdown of 30 seconds? Once they have gone they stay gone, it's a waste of time.

    Hi @Scottishark,

    I have moved this thread to the feedback section for discussion and consideration amongst the community and developers.

    Cheers,

    Yeah, why is that? it's getting to be VERY annoying. Make them lose at least half of what they've wagered

  • See the reason this wouldn't work is that it's not always intentional.

    I've been having severe connection issues with the game today. I have to leave it for two minutes before my coins even show up.

    However, there are 35,000 people playing today. I can't see that many people playing with connection issues like this, which means it's on my end. Not bad internet, as Kodi is streaming just fine, but I've just got a bad connection to the game today. This results in me only being able to actually play one out of ten matches. The rest are "It appears your opponent won't show" screens.

    So with the problem being on my end it would make me pay half the wager because I "Disconnected."

    If I were forced to pay half of my wager, I'd be out of coins by now. (I'm a filthy casual)

    It's not just you and it's not your end Joshua, I gave up trying to play hours ago cos it's so bad :'(
  • I've been getting "It seems your opponent won't show" all day. I agree with everybody else. The 30 second countdown is just a waste of time. I've used Internet Explorer and Google Chrome and have the same problem with both browsers.

    pleased they gpt it sorted. STILL like to know how they can back out of a game after the coins have gone in the pot, without penalty. Does this mean you can pick and choose who you play.

    if you press a high stake game by mistake, does this mean you can back out. if so , how do you do it. ??

    Yup. I used to do it all of the time. But these days, I just resign myself to play whoever I'm matched with.

    Just for the info of all who have experienced the "won't show" message - it does not even matter if you try a different website ( one that has the miniclip pool game on it ); the results are the same.........maybe them being based in Sweden makes a difference ??

  • I keep getting the 30 second countdown showing me that the opponent wont show, but when the time runs out its ME that gets knocked out and they go through to the next round. Its happened at least 4 times now and is absolutely nuts
