Game Completion Rate - GCR
lexulous last edited by
Before a player joins a "hosted game", they are shown all information including the opponent's game completion rate, dictionary setting, expected rating change and opponent information. Hence joining a game and deleting it immediately is unfair to the opponent (they need to place another request for no fault of theirs).
A player's GCR reduces each time they delete a game that they have joined from a hosted table. If the GCR falls below a specific level, the player is prevented from joining additional hosted games. The player can continue to post requests or play with friends.
How to maintain a healthy GCR?
Make sure you try to finish every game you have started playing and do not delete games without a proper reason.
How to improve your GCR?
You need to complete more games (either with friends or via hosted game requests of your own) and your GCR will keep rising.

What does the following message mean: “Low game completion rate can’t join game”.

@simone-arsenault I've never seen that message, but it looks as if Lexulous is trying to tell you you quit games too often without completing them. Is this something you ever do? I imagine the game (and your competitor) would prefer it if you Resign a game once you realize you have lost, rather than just closing the window or shutting down your browser. If that isn't something you do, then I guess the message means something else.
@thatguythere202 maybe they should just finish games.. quitters even by the name of resigning are the pits
@simone-arsenault AFAIK, It means you've deleted too many games before the first move. In the meantime, you can still post your own game and wait for someone to join. You'll be able to join other games once you've completed a few more games.
