I've noticed it does stop, also for deciding to use a reroll I'm pretty sure. This is a problem as I do like to take my time deciding on a crucial reroll decision but I don't want to be seen as exploiting rules.

What a brilliant strawman! You should change your username to Captain Strawman.

For Fumbbl the simplest solution would be to have chess locks for 45 minutes each. Your clock would be going during your turn and your opponent's clock during theirs. Ideally this could also be automated so that when waiting during your turn for you opponent to make a decision (e.g. sidestep, apothecary etc.) it is their time and not yours running out. Simples.


This would be enough for you to play one half each game tho... maybe this would give your opponents a slim chance of winning?
I think the way timeouts are handled on Fumbbl is good as it is.


You're right, not really broken as is but would love to see this implemented in the client if nothing else than for league play.

How, did you not read End's post or something?

Are you really that butthurt over the turn in question you need to fly off the handle at every opportunity?

I'd like to see this. When the alloted time is over, then it's 2 minutes per turn Laughing

Just to confirm. This happened in my game and is definitely a bug in the client. I empathise with chainsaw. Obviously it's unfair if exploited for extra time. If the bug doesn't get fixed, then admins should do something about repeat offenders. Spanking or something

I think a more rule conform implementation would be that somebody has to press a button for the timer to START, rather than to END.

It has been like this for a long time. Not necessarily correct to call it a bug. At least it slightly reduces the chance of misclicks, though they usually happen more with clicking blitz/handoff/move/pass rather than clicking the wrong block dice. I think it is only being brought up because of one coach who persistently pushes his turns to the limits.

While on the subject I think when you roll a double pow or double skull should you really need to choose one of the dice?

No but you might need to choose to reroll. And the dice on the right are far luckier.

Well, yeah man. It is a very critical choice. One of the die has a 1,1 AV check roll and the other has a 6,6 Av Check roll hidden behind the scenes. Choose wisely.
