I'm playing against a player with over 300 games. Respect due! I have had a number of chances to claim the time-out but have not. Yet my opponent still moves after the time-out period. Do I take the skull or play at a time-out length which is not my pref. i.e 7 Days as opposed to the touni 3 days?
This is the way I've always dealt with timeouts.
Take the timeouts in tournaments even if they have a vacation flag up (because in two days, you will automatically win).
Take timeouts in clan games and seige games unless they have a vacation flag up with a return date.
All other games are what I call "friendly games" and I won't take a timeout unless they haven't moved in a month. Some people will take them, normally when they are losing. That one is your call.
