We challenge but they don't answer

I'd like to ask why when i challenge somebody and he don't answer it. Sometimes it take very fast for me to challenge again sometimes it take really2 long ?

Yes, experienced that too... Some player are really away from their keyboard, or its their clan strategy to slow the activity of those who are actively participating in the tourney...

I think this has nothing to do with the "wait almost three minutes to play a card" (which is hardly provable but if it should become provable somehow is a behaviour which should be strongly sanctioned, imho).

The thing seems to be merely with challenges. While it is annoying to have 10 challenges in a row not refused but "your opponent did not answer your challenge", I too found a huge discrepancy in the time it takes for that message to show up. Usual seems to be around 30 seconds (fine). Sometimes, however, around 1 in 20 times, it takes 3 minutes or so to show up - which is really annoying. Also, I sometimes had battles timeout that did not even start; the challenge was simply not accepted.
I suspect there is a bug or a script that cannot deal with too many players at the same time or something like that... a look at that might be a good idea

There are 2 cases:

a) they don't receive the challenge because they are no longer connected: 30 seconds
b) they receive the challenge but they don't answer it (because they might be away from keyboard): 1min30 (because we need to allow time to type a feedback if the player is playing)

Dermagus: I had battles timeout that did not even start
Dont worry doesnt count as timeout though...i experience it on elo sometimes...its just an expiration of challenge not a timeout trust me^__^
I think fraggle should fix it:thumbsup:

Just want to ask wether the reputation level below our name will get impact if we let somebody wait for our challenge ?

I'd like to see a room where it is impossible to refuse a challenge, and a 90 sec timeout feature. Mind you, if the phone goes, that always takes priority

I think that typing a feedback is not necessary... i mean im from brasil and man i receive some answers in hungaryan... lol... it is really anoying for u to not be answered there must be a rule that if the guy doesnt answers 3 challenges then he gets booted from the room(since hes AFK he shouldent make volume there...)

This is quite annoying yes but what I do is just keep another window up or have the T.V. on and do those things well you wait
