    Clan challenge 3057

    Here is an example of a challenge that has not completed because both players have left the site. This basically means that all the players involved in this challenge have wasted their time playing in the challenge! There should be a point when these challenges auto timeout.

    Now, i'm not suggesting that once a players Timebank is spent, they should lose the match straight away, but shorely if a move hasn't been made a month after the player has run out of time, they should be timed out automatically? Every Clan (my own included) has a few Challenges that have gone stale like this. Can we put a 1 months timeout on Clan challenges, just so that they finish eventually. Thanks

    Good idea. If only to stop this ruining perfectly good challenges.

    Agreed. Not that this is a new idea, but your example clearly points out that this should not be allowed to happen. I think that one month after the timebank has run out is plenty for any match let alone challenges.

    There is an immediate automatic timout for tournaments and I think an automatic timout of one month would be easy to implement for challenges.

    In cases such as this where both players have effectively left the site or are otherwise not playing, the game should be considered a draw, regardless of the state of play.

    No way.

    Who ever's flag falls loses. It just wouldn't be cricket any other way.

    Not sure whether they should be drawn. Both players would lose one game if they timed out, so the result would be the same...
