THIS RULE HAS BEEN USED MORE OFTEN IN GAMES I HAVE BEEN IN. IF YOU STILL USE THE OLD RULE, YOU WILLHAVE MORE BEING DQ'ED. IT ISN'T FAIR TO LOSE A GAME BECAUSE THE WEBSITE IS HAVING THE PROBLEM.
I'VE NEVER LOST BECAUSE OF THE RULE BUT FEEL THAT IT IS IN NEED OS UPDATING. DO WE NEED TO PUT IT TO A VOTE?
: Boot Rule: Each player has a boot time of 10 minutes per game. Boot timer will start anytime a player leaves the lobby. (Stand and resitting does not count as a boot). Maximum boots per player is 4 times and team maximum is 7 per game. Any player or team exceeding these limits will be disqualified. The offical timer will start when the TD announces in lobby or at table (their preference).
