    signing for olympiad games sometimes results in losing olympiad points

    -sign into olympiad
    -the system mentions you are signed,
    -then the match never comes (wait 10 minutes),
    -you cancel oly
    -the system mentions says you are not signed, yet you cannot sign again.
    -you relog,
    -you lost points.

    can you investigate ??? tnx

    this is normal. if you cannot sign after cancellation, that means you are still signed, and it does not matter if system says in system chat that you are not signed (its bugged for a very long time and no one fixes it). system usually allows to cancel only maybe first few minutes after signing.
    and there was no match for 10 min probably because this often happens with class based oly, when not a lot people of same class goes to oly.

    you loose point only if you already have count. it doesnt matter if you try to cancel olympiad if its the case and relogging will make you loose points.

    you can cancel without problem only if you dont already have count (waiting to be teleported).


    don't forget that you can easily check if you have a count by trying to open the party matching windows or by trying to speak in chat. a lot of people dont realise it but the message "1min before teleportation in olympiad" you get in system message come 1min after the "real" initial count - the one who prevent you from canceling -.
