Timer in Tournament Mode

Recommended Posts

So, there's a 20 minute timer that runs for each player during tournament mode, as in multiplayer mode; however, I am in the midst of a game right now where my opponent has either left or is stalling since he's behind in prizes. I thought he was just trying to wait me out so I would concede, but then his timer ran to zero and started up at 20 minutes again. I'm not going to wait indefinitely for him to do something so that I can finish the battle, so I'll probably have to concede and give up the tournament. This is kind of upsetting for me, but I don't know what else I can do. I hope this isn't a regular issue, but I thought you should know that it happened to me. Opponents disconnecting or stalling is really a problem on this site, and I don't know what you can do about it.

 

 

 

Also, it now says in the chat box of the battle, "yurikwon (my opponent) has left the room." What does that mean? His second timer is still running and the battle doesn't appear to be over. I wish being good at the game were enough to win. : /

The timer issue is known, and it's very annoying. As for your opponent having left the room that means he's disconnected. If he doesn't reconnect, then usually the game would end after a certain period of time, but with the timer issue I don't know what exactly will happen. The match could just get stuck in limbo, with no real winner, and the tourney would fail to progress.

 

 

 

Note that I'm no mod or any sort of expert; this is all just speculation on my part.

And so you know, I ended up trying to concede, but pressing the concede button didn't do anything, so I refreshed my browser and now the whole site won't load for me. I'm pretty sure it's not my computer's fault.

 

And none of this is such a huge deal. I understand you guys are still in beta mode and there are a lot of kinks like this to work out. I love the site and I am very excited to see it when the beta is finished. Thanks for everything. : )

This also means matches that don't start due to one or more person leaving before the tournament or match is ready to go also would lead to this same conundrum, screwing up the entire tourney for everyone. No wonder everyone's whining about how broken it is.

You regularly beat me, so I'll take that, but I'm getting better, Jay. I get better every time I lose. I hope you were able to build that Gliscor deck you wanted. <img src="http://www.pokemontcg.com/javascripts/fckeditor/editor/images/smiley/png/regular_smile.png" alt="" />
