Several times during a tournament, i timed out just as i was about to play a card. I was thinking thru my moves because i was up against people who were much higher level than i was and i had a good chance of beating a few of them. however, because the timeout peroid is so short during a tornament, i lose to them, without even getting ANY points whatsoever, not even loss points.
I feel that the timout peroid during tornaments should be increased 15-30 seconds longer. This is a game of wits, bluffs, fakes, and the like. Players need time to think. I would appreciate an admins response to this at some point.
Dang, it seems that public opinion is against me. I take pride that in tournaments i win almost 70% of my matches. However i usually only rank around 200/3000, probably due to the fact that i don't get enough games in. Therefore i lose because i play intellegently. That seems to be a problem if you are penalized for not playing intellegently ;(
But i digress, thank you for your feedback. I will speak no more of this
