Sticking my neck out here. On the Tourney board an idea was given appropriate to that mode considering counting timeouts as KOs, a good one. My different idea is suited to EFC
It's happened to me at least once every gaming session, sometimes in round 4 when I'm about to win. It happens to my opponents similarly often, it balances but it's still frustrating
Counting timeout as a draw AFTER round 1 would be stupid - people could timeout if round 1 ends badly, but if round 1 isn't played before timeout there's 0 chance of turning loss into draw by cheating this way
People shouldn't have their score suffer because of a system the game admits is unstable letting them down
By all means give the other player a small points bonus of say 5 points to compensate time wasted
Thoughts? Any reasons this is a bad idea I haven't considered?
If they implemented this feature then it would be used in every case you face a counter.. of course if you're playing a mono rescue then your worst nightmare is a mono raptors.. then everyone could simply timeout on first round and get away with it
I've tried the app and had other issues with that. Perhaps I'll try again...
If one gets a terrible hand against a hard counter like that, I suppose that's down to the skill of making a deck which is less likely to be hard-countered like that, so I see why this could lessen the skill involved in the mode, now you mention it
