Hello,

How does time limit works?

Often when a coach stands too much with his turn a warning appears, but today the time limit just Ended My Turn! without explanation or possibility of do nothing.

Where i can find how that hideous time limit works?

Thanks

I don't think I've ever seen a warning on the time limit before? There are 4 minutes per turn, and I believe the timer is running along the very top portion of the game window (is that called a toolbar? I am not good with computer Embarassed ). When your 4 minutes for your turn is up, the other coach has the option of hitting the Timeout button to end your turn to continue the match.

Does it sound like that happened? If there is something going on and you need more time due to an in-real-life issue, most of the time you can communicate that to the other coach via the chat and they will understand.

Soo There is a Time limit of 4 mins for turn, if my opponent want he can finish my turn after that. Right?

Yep.

Although if you notify AFK for a real life reason, without reaching conditions to be considered abandoning the mathc they shouldn't push it.

Some leagues disallow it, but matchmade games allow it all the way.

He better be quick. He only gets 4 minutes to do it.

Does the coach (who is waiting) need to do anything on their end, if they want to let the coach (with the active turn) continue playing?

We were playing our first friendly match and my friend said after he got the Timeout warning, he couldn't do anything.

Yes they need to press the timeout button if they don't see a reason why you're afk

sounds odd. Nothing happens unless someone presses the time out button.

And the timeout button will end the turn, correct?

What if you don't want to end the turn, and you want to allow the coach to continue his turn, is there anything you need to do?

Thanks Garion, I think it might be a matter of us just trying to learn Fumbbl. It sounds like I didn't do anything wrong on my end at least.

What a good suggestion, seventyone. There's an active discord channel here - https://discord.gg/JNvtPXC - where us new players organise games against each other and get excellent advice from people who know what they're doing.
