    Does anyone know 'for sure' how the timing, particularly at worlds, is going to world in terms of:

    Will there be warnings before time is called, e.g. 10 minutes, then 5 minutes, then 1 minute before a game finishes?

    For how long does the timer (with how much time is left) display for?

    Are players allowed their own timing devices etc e.g. watch (even if its not in stopwatch mode... i.e. i look its 10:20 rounds is 1 hr i remember this)
    If not, will watches be banned =s?

    Thanks, appreciate it

    You'll see how the clocks are set up at Worlds when you are there.
    I can make guesses about it now, but what is the point?

    I will say that I doubt that time will be called out at that level.
    It would encourage players near the end to play slow if they are winning.

    A player is allowed to have a watch and to keep track of time themselves.
