I was playing on ESO today, in a rated game under one of my smurf accounts. The guy was beating me pretty good at the beggining but I regrouped and got a titan out. Things seemed normal, until right after he killed my titan and started to win, my mom called me and told me to help her carry our rug downstairs. Well I paused the game, and when I came back, the guy was cussing me out. I figured it was pretty normal(I'd be gone like 10 minutes ). But, when I tried to unpause, it wouldn't let me, at all. Literally the game refused to unpause. Told my oppenent how to unpause, but he refused to and told me to crtl-alt-delete. I didn't feel like losing points to a pause, so i offered a save, and he refused, instanly, 3 times. So I figured, "screw it", tried to resign, it wouldn't let me :0 and finally I just alt-F4'd it.
Well...low and behold when i went back and restarted my eso, again, my rate had not gone down, and the guy i was playing was still in the game. Apparently, in the same game.

So, has anyone else had this happen? I've played over 500 games on a bunch of accounts, and never see it. Have you?

hmm.. could just be a routine glitch.. but you never know..

the chances of it being intentional is probably low though.. if anything he would just unpause and maul you while you were away.


Never argue with an idiot, they'll drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.
Preparation can only take you so far... After that you gotta take a few leaps of faith.

something like that has happend to me....
i'm on dial up modem and someone rang on a rated game
and i went back into eso and my rating went down heaps but the guy was still playing the game...

now that i think of it i won a game (he resigned) but i had to keep playing i killed all his units(even though he was resigned) but i woulden't win
so i had to resign
BTW: this was savanna 1 vs 1

if it's worth noting, that game lasted nearly 1 and a half hours

Oh, I had the same problem with realplayer. I hate real player, it creeps me out. It has all this like, self-resurecting programs and tries to make me re-register for stupid things every three days. I would not have it on my comp if it didn't seem to bring it back from being uninstalled exactly 4 days after I uninstall it. I have seen stages of it too, like how much it tries to do, in those four days, and it seems to be fully running again on the fourth day. Real player is weird.

I've had a similar problem in Advanced as 2x? Titan AI's, where my opponents connection glitched, we both chose wait, then after the game resumed we were both playing separate games vs the same AI's.

Yeah Real Player is weird, but QuickTime took over my PC once when I installed a demo version of it. All my files tunred into quicktime files and it kept asking me to register =/

Quicktime is taking over my computer!!!1 I can see it now. Next patch will involve preventing quicktime from taking over computers.

Just download the real player alternative off the net. (search on google) It basically has all the real player codes but it uses windows media playeer 7. You can get a quicktime one also. Thats the ones i use

I hear this internets pretty good. I was thinking of buying one

I had a pause bug once. I paused in-game, and when i returned and unpaused, the pause text still was there, however I was able to play. It gets pretty annoying after a while, luckily I had it only twice.

Quoted from mr2 pilot:
