*shrug* It happens man, no big. I look at it as getting all my crappy draws out of the way early, so it should be smooth sailing from here on. Although some time down the line, I would like to have a *proper* match with you at some point, if schedules allow. If you're ever around for a fandraft, for example.
On a mostly related note, there really should be an option in MtGO, especially for friendly non-tournament play, wherein both players can agree to a "mercy concession" or something similar. Basically, allowing you to concede a round without counting it as a game loss if the situation is just utterly unfair for either player. To prevent fraud, you'd probably have to reveal your hand at the very least so they can see you're not sandbagging land just to get a freebie. And maybe with a maximum of 2 or 3, so games don't last forever.
I'd suggest it myself, except A: the Wizards website doesn't really have an official "make a suggestion" page (or if they do, it's VERY well hidden), B: I'm sure they'd just ignore such a dumb idea from 1 lowly player, and C: for some reason, they're not letting me log in (because of their bulls*** password rules, and the fact that I log in there extremely rarely, I can never remember exactly how this password variant goes), and they're not sending me any "reset your password e-mails. (Which probably means I'll be spammed with about 50 of 'em tomorrow).
