    Without the Show Exit Warning option enabled, people can forfeit battles by accidentally clicking the X in the top left, or clicking the forfeit button.

    Some people may not want a warning when leaving the server, but a warning for when they click forfeit / X in battle. As such, these should be seperate options.

    OMG this happened to me quite a few times. Almost got a mute for one because I accidentally scrolled down while clicking a move then hit forfeit. The window immediately shut so I joined the next tour.

    It shouldn't even be an option, just force exit confirmation to always be on, like most online games. I'm honestly failing to see why one would want a confirmation for battles, but not server, with the aim some people apparently have, it sounds like they'd easily hit exit on the client too :D

    i dont like exit confirmation when im testing stuff :( gets in the way of quickly killing the client to rebuild a new one.

    --- Post updated ---
    also for the record i did tell oak not to post this cause i wasnt going to code it. he said maybe @turbedi would but it still seems like a waste of time to even bother with
