D as along with C sounds more logical and fair with this one idea added: Players who stall for time during a timed game, should be booted by the HOST without a vote or a time. All they do is leve and come back or wait just for the 2 minutes are up then play. This is unsportsmanship like conduct and should not allowed to be tolerated by the HOST. Thank YOu
: I will open up this discussion thread on boot
: rules since it was a hot lobby topic last
: night. Melinda (Mush) set these rules way
: back and we've never had a reason to change
: them because they seemed fair and made
: sense. If a player disconnects from a game,
: they have five minutes to return and resume
: play. If a player is not back in 5 minutes
: or disconnects 3x or more, the TD has a
: right/duty to sub the player out if a sub is
: available in order to not keep the other
: players waiting. Never is a bot to be used
: in TOP tourney except for in tiebreaker
: I will ask people to reply as to their
: A) The current boot rules are fair - please
: don't change them.
: B) The current boot rules are not fair to
: people who have bad connections due to
: storms, ISP issues, etc. Change the rules
: to increase the time to be gone, number of
: times they can disconnect, and/or never sub
: out such a player.
: C) The current boot rules are not fair to
: the players waiting for the lost player. A
: player should be subbed in less time or
: immediately if disconnected.
: D) Same as C, but if a sub isn't available,
: allow playing with a bot until the player
: E) I have a different idea (please specify).
: Note: this is just to gauge opinion. This
: is not a democratic vote, but player opinion
: will be a factor if any changes are to be
