Yeah, I hate when it times out on me. I, personally, have let it time out
on my opponent once, completely by accident, because I was incredibly
tired and forgot I was playing. Just thought I'd get that out there and
be honest. but that doesn't make it any less annoying, and if it hadn't
taken me like an hour to realize, I would've messaged the guy and
apologized (Wondertooth, if you're reading this, sorry about that). The
problem is that, as was discussed in the speed it up thread, you can't
do anything about the time limit because that can block out people
with slower connections (like the Cell phone users).
I'm of the opinion that:
1) You should not be able to hide your presence and challenge somebody and
2) People who leave fights and time out should get a little symbol next to there name like the stars so that you can see is the person who is challenging you or who you wish to challenge is a quiter.
This Mark of shame should not be given out if you leave or time out once or twice but per haps if it happens more then 10 times in a 30 day period or something like that. This would save the people who want to play from wasting their time challenging clowns who leave or time out any fight they think they can't win.
