Hrmm. justcallmefox has been timed out for a day or so now. fox had moved in the game several times, and i can no longer delete the game because of that, but the game hasn't really started it's still early into it.

Should i claim the win? I'm a little torn by it since the game is so early, but fox hasn't moved in ages too..

If the game has progressed enough so that you can't delete it then you're more than entitled to claim the timeout, it's looking less and less likely that she intends to continue anyway.

I'm going to get in touch with her and see if she's still taking part.

Can I just apologise to anyone that's been waiting on a game from me, i've had a REALLY chaotic few days and it's just one of those things, i've made some moves now and i'll try and stay on it and do a couple/few a day.

Many apologies to anyone who had to cancel.  I am playing Kratos and Ashley now so please no-one else add me or you may be dissappointed. original.gif

SHE would like to apologize to everyone who had timed out games.

unfortunately, i am forced to use public computers, which often have some time of filter or rule against games, so that i can only move rarely.

Unfortunately one of the general requirements of the tournament is that participants need to be able to move on a fairly regular basis, which is why we have the timeouts. Eventually i'll have to start removing players who are timing out in order to keep the tournament moving. This was a problem last time, when nearer to the end there were a lot of players waiting on the slower players to move in order to progress.

If you feel that you will only be able to move rarely, I think this will definately apply to you, especially if you continue to time out in your games.

At the moment there is a limit of three timeouts before a participant is automatically disqualified from the tournament, and you've timed out twice already.  sad.gif
