Apologies for the refresh fail!
Dear @OskrFranco and @yasmimbf,
I wanted to apologise to you both: when there was no response from you both and it seemed like a lag, I tried refreshing (someone had mentioned this as a way of fixing lags). But I then could not rejoin the game!
My sincerest apologies - I was enjoying it immensely, and do not leave games early. That was a complete accident.
Happy playing in future!
(ps Not sure if they will see this? I could not message them personally to apologise, as they have not accepted my request - is it possible to add a message option for contacting people who are not yet on your friends list?)
