    Anti-afk measurements?

    Hello forum!

    Right now I'm stuck in a game in Shadow Era...
    Why? Because I am facing a Darkclaw deck and I've destroyed all his weapons. How does he respond? By going afk, and hoping I dont have the patience to wait. Been like this for 15 minutes now and I'm getting kinda pissed, since he SLUGGED the match with invurnability for 10 mins before this.

    Is it just me or does this game need better anti-afk mechanics? Discuss.

    And I wont call the guy out since I'm not a dousche...

    Its a multi-synch error. Offer a draw and move on matey.

    Awesome! I want something like that as well!

    Either way: on topic: It is a synch issue. Those should be addressed mostly in the next patch and happen a lot less. So don't worry too much about them. The next patch should be submitted to Apple by the end of this month.

    Great! Still think he was a dousche who kept spamming invurnability when he was out of weapons and allies... Got kinda pissed :P

    yeah, not sure where the OP is coming from. if someone goes AFK the either time out their turn after 1min or get a loss after 30s if the game isn't active. If the game gets stuck (usually in someone's sac phase) it's because of a network dropout/sync issue.

    People are so quick to ascribe malice to other people... "he's not responding so it MUST be because he's a douche and trying to stall out a win".
