After weeks of wondering if Blarg's technique was repeatable, I had the opportunity to try it tonight. I was playing a game with Nuzz and his computer locked up in turn 7. I waited until the reconnection attempt timed out and got the pop-up giving me a Quit Game button. Instead of clicking this button, I alt-tabbed out of the game, right-clicked the game icon on my taskbar, and selected Close Program. When I loaded the game again, the score was ?-? and when Nuzz logged back in, we were able to restart the game at turn 1 and play it to completion... HOOWAH!!!

Yeah Huurk is the MAN!!

Thanks for doing that, he even gave up the win (for a tie), almost lost his Witch Elf, all the SPP and money and had others injured. The bright side is that we got to play the game.. and see a gutter runner run out onto the pitch and commit suicide at the bottom of the 16th turn.

Thanks Huurk I appreciate you sticking it out and finding this solution as well.

this may or may not work anymore, in a recent game with nuzz who got disconnected, i didn't notice he was d/ced and all of a sudden the game menu popped up, not the disconnection notice, with only "Abandon Match" available. as i didn't know what was happening i thought i'd accidentally activated the game menu. before i had time trying to do anything, the menu disappeared and i was back in game, the end of game gong immediately sounded and i was taken to the end of game menu. i Alt-F4ed at that point, but when i logged back in the score was set.

i guess i could have alt-f4ed when the game menu popped up but it was up for only 10-20 seconds.

It was my fault, I had to drop out due to my kids. Not a disconnect.

yes it definitely still works. A couple days ago I was playing a match in the Phoenix Throne league and my opponent was hit by a bug in turn 1 that wouldn't let him select players (happened to me once, it sucks!). Rather than have him play the whole game handicapped, we both closed the game externally and were able to restart.
