    HI, Im in the ALpha Rookie quick knockout tourny and my own clan menber timed me out! I was away on holiday and the game just started (next round) without me even knowing about it.

    Is there anyway, to have a rematch as I've lost 2 matches without even making a move ?

    PS MY game was against rayjordan

    cheers

    A loss is a loss...even though you were on vacation, the tournament clearly states when you enter that vacation settings will NOT be respected

    It's possible that your opponent may not have timed you out. In tournament games there is an automatic time out .

    Thats shocking, i would never time out one of my own clan members, whatever tournement we were playing. But i agree, there may have been an auto time out.

    Well look the entire issue is about the fact that the NEXT round of the tournament started after I had gone on holiday. I wasn't in the middle of a game.

    Seeing as its impossible to know when the next round of a tournament will start, it seems pretty unfair if you're already on holiday.
