Maybe I just got something wrong when I last created a tournament, so please correct me if I'm wrong.

As far as I know there currently is no way to have a setting for banked boot time in tournaments (per game, not transferable between games). Is there a reason why this is so? If not please implement!

When creating larger tournaments you want many people to join. People who often leave on weekends won't join games with less than 3 days boot. On the other hand it can also be frustrating if people tend to use up every last hour of the 3 days. Especially if you prefere to play in just in 2 or 3 game at the same time instead of 30.
In normal multiday games you could allow people to save up banked time so it would be ok if you usually make one turn per day and once in a while take 3 days to commit. For some reason this is not possible in tournaments.

WHY?

You can have banked boot time in tournaments (on a game-by-game basis). You just have to modify the template that you're using. Unfortunately the tournament-creation interface doesn't let you change most of the settings directly.

So just go to Create Game, pick the template you plan on using for the tournament, and modify it (or make a copy and modify it) so that it has banked boot time. You have to do the same thing for stuff like tournament message (the one the shows up under the Tournament Settings tab), cards, whether the games respect vacations, etc.

I had the banked boot time in the template. Unfortunately when ceating the tournament you are asked to choose a new booting time, which apparently overides the banking.

This tournament had banked boot time: https://www.warlight.net/MultiPlayer/Tournament?ID=15312

So there has to be a way.

I can bank boot-times for multi-day games.

Maybe you used custom-boot times (1.5 days, instead of the standard 3days/1day) and the tourny wanted/needed to overwrite that, and thus overwrote the BBT as well ?
