Seriously these happen to me all the time, after the animation, suddenly ill have seconds to make a choice on what to do. So frustrating lost me 60 points just now and was doing nicely in 204th place and that was after -40 :@
Yes this happened to me a few tourneys ago. I was going for like top 50 or 100 and i was around 100 or 150 and then that happened to me on my last 2 battles and i ended up like 375 or sumthing. i was pissed.
This usually doesn't have anything to do with Urban Rivals it self, but your internet speed. On a bad day, everything lags for me and I sometimes end up timing out but it's not UR's fault. Try closing up some tabs/windows while playing a DT, or maybe you just need to upgrade your flash player.
