Well I waited like a hour that he would come but he didnt. But I think like 30 minutes is the maximum to wait.
Also gratz to you all ladies.
20 minutes per turn is all well and good, but there should be no reason that a match with 4 moves per player (because the 9th and final move for the player who went first is a no brainer) should last for 160 minutes at maximum. I think if you need more than 5 minutes for a single placement, you're thinking too hard about the placement.
That's just me, of course. I got pretty impatient waiting for some matches to end due to how long it took for card selection and placement during matches. I think what we should do is have players pick hands in a 10-15 minute period BEFORE the matches are sent, and impose a shorter turn restriction within each individual match. Also, players should be given a set amount of time where they can safely go afk if it's absolutely necessary, but it should be confirmed by a TO before things go on; if people just up and leave randomly, we may end up waiting a long time again for things to resume. A TT tournament with 12 people should not have taken almost 6 hours, that's for sure. I expected it to take, at most, around 2-3.
Though apart, forever connected.
