    Hello,
    Will the Last Chance Qualifier still have 30 minutes of play time for each round? Will there be a visible clock for all participants to see? Will there be a player cap for the Last Chance Qualifier?


    Thank you,
    Atomant

    It should still have a 30 minute round. There is usually a clock for all to see. They usually turn it off with 10 minutes left in the round to prevent stalling. I would expect there is a cap, whether it is enforced is another story.

    I don't understand why it is legal to have a watch and look at it during the match, yet you cannot know how much time is left under 10 minutes.

    I understand it is to prevent stalling, but if someone really wanted to stall that bad they could just bring a watch.

    Just to help you out on this one, watches are allowed but if a player continuosly looks at their watch, it could be brought to there attention and penalties could result of the Judge deems it as stalling/rushing. Just remember, if you are wearing it and keep checking time, esp after 10 minutes are turned off, this will send up a red flag!

    As a Judge, I vote for this, [DEL]then Taze them[/DEL]!

    Yeah, I understand constantly looking at your watch, but if you just glance at it every few minutes then you'll be ok as well as having a better sense of time.

    I really have to remember to wear a watch during the grinder, lol.

    I think I'd die of laughter if they gave you a gameloss for stalling because he tasered you and you were unconscious. :tongue:

    ^ Lol. :D

    Guys, if you're worried about time, you can solve it with two things:

    A) In your training for the grinder, practice accelerating your pace.
    B) Call a judge to observe play pace on both sides. Sour grapes are often avoided with a simple time extension.

    Ya got any more of those? :lol:
    If I remember correctly, I don't think they have a visible clock for the Grinder, but I'm not entirely sure. They may end up having one set up. I actually don't see a cap for this event. If there was, I'm sure they would've announced it already.
