    Halò everybody,

    How is possible that a match from 21 days Timebank + 0 Days Timeout, is standing from 77 days?
    Should it not be max 42 days?
    Also considering Vacation bonus it shold not exceed 72 days as total.

    Tournament 2016 October Long Haul Quartets I 1685+ / 21 days timeout. Groups of four.

    Ciao,

    It is 21 days timeout and 0 days timebank. Every time it is your move you get another 21 days. It could go on a lot longer.

    I often see people confused with the terms "time out" and "time bank". Wouldn't it be better to differentiate clearly in the terminology, maybe "DPM" (days per move) and "reserve time" instead?
