We have recently reviewed our table making Policy, including when players may ask for a timer.
In short, Pogo League players, even in 1x1 Leagues, must now make tables 'Private', with pw eliters. This must be done before asking for a timer.
While Yahoo Leagues remain the same, e.g. tables should be made, and made 'Protected', prior to asking for any timer, in Game Desire, because of the lobby control eliters have there, then players may still play on 'Public' tables, and still be able to request timers from the start.
If anyone other than the oponent sits, then after a request to leave, members may 'boot' the sitting player.
We are sure this will shorten frustrating waiting times for our members, and make things easier for those players playing across eliters Leagues.
