1.There may be any number of reasons why a player is unable to play for a period of time.
2.Once a players rating plummets due to timeout losses,his advertised rating is way below his actual ability giving a false impression for potential challenges.
3.I rarely take skulls because I am ulate any system for there own advantage but surelythere is a discrepancy here?
When you agree to the time limit, it is like a contract really.
You have said I agree to move in such & such a time.
If you don't and wind up timing out you have not kept up your end of the contract.
In the real word if you don't keep up your payments on your mortgage, car loan, or what ever the case might be, then you lose it. It is just the way the world works.
No one cares WHY, only that you didn't keep you end of the agreement.
