In the great majority of Eliters Tourneys, a 5 minutes Time Out clock is used. Each Player has up to 5 minutes of inactivity available in up to 2 separate incidences during any Tourney. Players “Time Out” when they have “used up” their 5 minutes in either the first or second incidence. Examples:
Player “X” is not in the lobby when the tournament starts, and does not show up within 5 minutes of the official start time. Player “X” is timed out.
In the above scenario, Player “X” shows up 2 ˝ minutes after the tournament start and is seated. This is Player X’s first incidence, so there is 1 incidence remaining to this player.
Continuing the scenario, Player “X” is booted from the room and the clock is started a second time; Player “X” now has 5 minutes to return and resume play or s/he will be timed out.
NOTE: the former “cumulative clock” no longer exists; it has been replaced by this principle of 2 distinct incidences.
The clock applies from time of TD notification (a Player notifying the TD, or the TD announcing the clock) on Eliters Messenger
