Originally posted by HopsterTourney Time Outs are automatic after a couple day or so. This keeps tournaments moving rather than having everyone wait on a few players.
If the skull appears in a game does the game automatically time out a few days later if the opponent doesn´t move. I am specifically talking about tournament games.
I seem to remember this happening in the past. Is the claiming of a timeout solely at the discretion of players now?

I would like the win, but prefer it if the machine claims it for me.

I play social... but a tournament is holding up a lot more people than just me.
Originally posted by redpen1919I believe you would.
Would an automatic timeout take the game in a tournament when the opponent hasn't made the first move? I've got a final tie-breaker in a tournament with an opponent who hasn't moved in over a month.

Under what circumstances could the game be timed out if the clock hasn't started ticking and who/what would end the game?
Originally posted by John of ReadingBut you didn't gain any rating points, did you? (as you didn't move two times in the game, hence non-rated game.)

Originally posted by KalvinoIf you CAN do a timeout, you will see a skull icon in the game line on your My Games page. Click on the skull and you will get a "game won". It will count as a win for you, but you only get the rating points if three moves have been made.
There is no way of win a game by time out not automatically?
I need to press any button?
