It's normally a trap they want you to time out 1st because they test your patience the best thing to do is wait and see what excuse they give you , there not much you can actually do apart from just see what happens all the best and good gaming :thumbsup:

Yeah I have my fair share of players like that. But I admit I do get people saying I play slow and time wasting. But I'm not, it's just that where I'm at, the connection is kinda laggy at times, and the whole page hangs when loading and when I refresh, it won'd do jack. So I get delays and time outs but I'm not the only one. I have friends from other countries that experienced this as well. I've already put that in my profile and explain when I can. Of course, this doesn't happen all the time. But I really can't stand players who take forever on the last card. What is there to think?? You have only one card left with a certain number of pills left or maybe none.

So my advice is, be patient and play the game through. I have never quit or leave any matches, no matter the reason.

As with Jericho...Ihave problems with the game seemingly freezing sometimes through fights.My connection is it is either the site or the other player.The only fix I've found is to click on the "play" button the room and challenge someone.It will tell you you are already in a fight...and resume the battle.This MUST be done before the time-out.

Yup, Bloodmoor is right. That was what I was trying to explain. :)

You know, maybe the battle is slow not because our opponent, but because of ourselves,
I've tried this, I play with my friend...
I've choosen my card but in his screen, i haven't and vice versa...
Well, u're in Indonesia and so do I...
That's the main problem,
Our connection are not that good to connect to France...

Are Guilds still doing this tactic? I've heard that guilds were using this to boost one of their own to win the tourney outright and for the others to slow other players up. Has anyone else heard of this and is it still being used? This is one reason I have not joined a guild because of negitive play. Granted, not all guilds are like this but I just choose to stay Solo, as in Han! lol
