A few minutes ago I was at telnet:\\bbs.memphistw.org playing OOII (even though someone beat Overkill a long time ago).
I was walking around on map 3 of Purgator mapset, near the mid-top left area where all the pits are, and was in such a hurry to get to
the hole down (to grab more duroplast hehe...4 days: 5 bases breached/looted, 1 destroyed) I didn't even notice I had 2 hp left.
Suddenly a Hexman appears....I have 3 choices...

1) Try to fight him with 2 hp...if I survived the LR hit, I could surrender half my crystals and live....hmm no way!
2) Full Surrender...and lose my nearly 20k crystals?  No way!
3) Try to Flee, and get shot in the back...no thanks!

So how did I get away with all my crystals and my life?

Simple....DISCONNECT!  Hehe...old-school trick.  You then wait 4 minutes or so and log back on (unless your plays-per-day is 1)
and you're right there where you left off before the combat.

This is how I handle conflicts in real life.

This is not how the game was intended to be played and what I would consider to be cheating.    Unfortunately there are several ways to cheat int he game, and even more unfortunate is that there are many willing to take advantage of these things.

  The problem with disconnecting is that often doing so will hang the game. Its a glitch that pops up from time to time. The game thinks someone is still playing and won't allow another to enter the game till it's un-hung. (usually manually by the sysop) I have seen games stay hung on some systems for 6 months to a year, as the sysops rarely check OOII.

if they're using a modern bbs software, when the user disconnects that process will be forced close.
if you're talking about a flag file that tells the game someone is online, yeah you should tell the sysop.

i havent had that issue yet and i've had people drop carrier in the game a lot, though.

yeah, people suck

 Yes, its a game flag file. It pops up occasionally, and has to be manually "fixed"
