in otb tournament play when the clock runs dead the game is over, i think it should be like that here with tournament and all clan and league games.
In an over the board game there would be very few players would tell you that their flag had fallen. You have to see it and point it out.
Only way we can do this is to click the skull.
Also some games are played for fun and people don't click on the skull at all the opponent then still has 2 days I think it is to move.
I know you said for clan and tourney games, but if done, it may have to be done for all?

2 days is a long time before a game is auto timed out, it doesn't take 20 mins in otb play before someone realizes the clock is dead.
In over the board tournaments you can have 1 1/2 hours for first 30 moves then 1hr. to finish up the game. You would suprised how many people don't get those 30 moves in before the 1 1/2hrs. is up, and it is up to the opponent to point it out. I have seen both players miss it and just play on, it does happen. You get so caught up in the game, you sometimes forget about the time.
Less likely to happen to seasoned OTB players for sure.
