Timing - how does it work: 2/29/2012 01:38:34

I was wondering how timing works.

The reason I ask was that I was in a game of 3 players.

Two of us had our goes and waited a long time for the third player. He had his go and then booted me straight away.

Therefoer does your time start from when you had your last go and as a result if someone waits the boot time and then logs on, has their go and then you are over boot time they can then expel you straight away?

You got booted after a day, and it was a real time game(ten minute boots)
The boot timer starts at the beginning of each turn, so when every player commits the timer resets.

There was no autoboot. If nobody opts to boot, then you can stay in that game for eternity. However, there was a 10-minute direct boot. After 10 minutes of inactivity, any player can boot that player. The first player, you said, had been inactive for 22 hours. It surprises me the guy didn't boot him earlier than that. If you've been inactive for 9 hours, then it doesn't surprise me you were booted as well. Note the booting times, they're important. Real-time games aren't multiday. You're expected to stay online for them.
