Talking Mario Tennis Open: online question.

When you play and you disconnect because the connection is bad, do you lose rating? I know your opponent receives rating but i'm curious if you lose rating. Some of my matches disconnected when I was about to win during a deuce and my opponent was serving. Also if you lose and you disconnect, right when it says game, set, and match: opponent wins, does your opponent still receive your victory medal or the person doesn't receive anything but rating?

you don't lose any VR points unless nintendo thinks you would have lost the match. but it also depends on how high your VR rating is as well. If you have a high VR and the opponent has a low VR if you aren't winning by a large margin then you will lose VR points as well. It's all kinda weird, you don't necessarily gain points for winning it's based more on how much you win by, which I think is stupid. In saying that it means you can also lose VR points for winning.

If you're talking about your online points (the monthly leaderboard score) then if you win or lose you always gain points as far as I'm aware

I've never disconnected from bad connection. I've had people purposely disconnect when I was about to win and recieved quite a lot of rating. So I guess it just works out how well you were doing and makes you win/lose rating based on that. I'd assume you could lose some too, if you can win some.

I just had a guy quit against me, then a few matches later I got him again and he quit against me again. I wouldn't expect he would quit again if he lost rating... unless he thought it was making me lose some as well and decided to be spiteful.

When you disconnect in the middle of a match due to bad connection, your rating is actually affected by the score of the match and rating of your opponent.

Your opponent only receives rating. I know I'm too late for this thread, but I wanted to answer it

It's ok! But I never knew you lose rating from a disconnection. Thanks! Especially since you took the time to post in this thread no matter how late.

What I meant by your opponent receives rating is if you disconnect right before the game set match thing. That was a bit confusing when I read my post back

I hate it when people quit on me like that... Cowards. They should lose VR points for quitting at the end. At least I get points. Heh.
