Does anyone like the timer changes in ELO? (reduction of final round timer to 45 seconds)
I personally despise it. The reason I play ELO is because a) I don't always have an hour to play DT and b) I like to relax and multi-task while I play. The previous timer allowed this without any issue. Now, I time out of probably 1/10 matches, if not more. I have guaranteed wins that I happen to lose because I happen to be reading something on another site for more than 45 seconds. Am I the only one who is very annoyed by this?

i lost 3 games only because of stupid timeouts
It just takes getting used to. I understand the frustration of getting redlined every round by a salty player.
However, I wish the event timer would go back to what it was before. Stalling doesn't happen in events (often) because you are in communication with your opponent. Timeouts are super annoying for event creators.
