I'm getting booted unaware that a new game started: 12/27/2021 07:46:53

This is rarely a problem with quick matches or within tournaments. Because then I know when the previous game ended, so I assume that another game will start.

However especially when starting a new tournament I have no signal when the first game starts. Like yet again with tournament 46796. Even though I regularly check the multiplayer dashboard, I still some times miss the start of a game. Once a game gets going I have a tab open for it, so then there's a sound notification and a * on the tab.

1. Organizers can give players banked time, why don't they?

2. Could we provide an additional banked time only until the player received a notification for that game?

3. Could we add notifications in the web environment for newly started games?

4. Am I missing any ways to be notified of this?

The tournament page is supposed to play a sound.
Though no sound on the tournament page nor when you create a RT game, leave the tab open and game starts.
Either hypercheck your games or don't play RT Warzone.

1. If every player in the game uses their banked time in a different turn, games become very long. Long games make for more time between rounds of the tourney, making it more likely players get booted.

2. Notifications are often so delayed, that it would make the games first turn so long you might as well play MD.

3. Great idea! It wouldnt be hard to implement that, just need Fizzer to do it...

4. You could turn on getting emails for everything in your notification settings, but that is a lot of emails.

I would suggest adding something like a banked time that is only valid during the first turn. Not a complete solution, but it might help it a bit

Ummm. I think you can set banked time to last only N turns.
Anyways, this just transfer the problem into 2nd turn.

it's about the game starting, not the turn advancing

If 1st turn could last 20 min and you committed in 3 min, would you sit there for 17 min or open another tab and do something else?
