This has nothing to do with what we think is happening on the other side of our screen during their BRB, this is a matter of keeping the round flowing in a timely manner. There is always at least 1 team waiting when a round takes 45 minutes to play in an 8 hand dump tourney. It makes matters worse when EVERYONE is waiting because the tourney is Swiss. It can also prevent players who plan on participating in the next tourney.
If we continue on this road with dragging out our rounds, it's going to discourage players from joining the late tourneys, as well as our TD's from creating them.
