Originally posted by randolph No, it was advice on how the site operates. In OTB, you can claim a win even if it is your move so this is absolutely acceptable as it's a process issue and not a game issue.
Originally posted by Mon I'm in a banded hardcore grand , timebank 21 days. My oponent is several days out of timebank and i can't claim a win.And now my timebank is running out
What should i do
A specific question about how to progress the game as he does not know what to do
Originally posted by Kewpie If it's Game 8120135 you're talking about, it's your move. You have to make a move to stop your timeclock and get his started again. Then you should have a skull to click.
A specific answer about how to progress the game
A better response would have been that they can only claim the win when the skull shows.
Has the OP not moved and their timebank been reduced to 0, then it is possible that his opponent could have come back at some point, seen a skull and claimed the win.
As such the advice given has directly allowed a player to win a game, that they were unsure of how to do so.
Originally posted by deriver69 In timebank only tournaments you can be at a disadvantage depending on the timezone you live in. There is an inherent unfairness.
Perhaps I misunderstand but time bank is controlled entirely by yourself, you start it by default and you run down the clock..your opposition likewise, I can only see a tenuous link to the time zones ....tournament start times are more time zone 'sensitive' being as most, if not all, start GMT am...perhaps this is the concern as regard time bank only affairs..
