Well it's not like every person will be that slow. I think in fairness to ALL players, not just the few who wanted timers, and to get qwerty back up and running, a change should be made. And I also did not say to take them off of every single tourney, but to be fair and have 50/50 or at least some with no timers, like the hot tourneys are.
I have played 2 hot tourneys today with no timers, and both were done in less than 15 minutes.
And if it was taking 10-15 minutes for your opp to play one word, then why wasn't he timed out from the Eliters Timer as that would certainly be slow play?
