This is old but probably still true:

I don't work for BBO and any advice is based on my BBO experience over the decades

The only thing missing from there is that daylong tournaments don't count.

Robot duplicate tournaments count towards increasing completion, but bailing doesn't count negatively.

You need to add another case to the MCR statements - if BBO cuts your connection midhand it will count against you - even if you log back in and reseat yourself and continue the hand.

The reason why you're disconnected doesn't matter, it still inconveniences the other players.

MCR and TCR are separate statistics.

And it inconviences me - especially when I'm not being slow, the system is just having a hissy fit - and its getting very annoying.

I've just been watching the 'interesting tables' on the main bridge club - the top 5 tables have 6 robots between them, and robots are randomly coming and going. You can't tell me that in that arena so many players are that inconsiderate.

I suggest you have a problem with your software that determines when to disconnect a player, and you need to resolve it.

They do, they know, and they're working on it. Really they are. It's a lower priority than dealing with kick-outs from paid tournaments (at least part of which pay for said servers, and said people looking at it). But it's a high priority.

Code that's written now for net-based games is designed from day 1 to bring servers online and offline as capacity requires, with cross-server talk as needed. BBO was designed in the 20th century.

Having said that, I assume that the people looking for 95% MCR aren't getting anyone any more, and will have to go down to 90% or 80% to get people.

(Those who believe I am a "BBO can do no wrong" type are welcome to search my history. They're in a "great, but awful" situation, and they're handling it better than they could. I've been in similar situations, and I know my reaction, so some of the way *I* pay for BBO is to take some of it instead.)
