Reducing Time Limit for Turns

RE: Reducing Time Limit for Turns
I voted 3 days, but I starting to think 2d makes more sense. I think the "players will adapt" theory makes a lot of sense. If there are no other options, but you have to play within a short time frame, then people will get used to it, and games will move quicker. I know a lot of the people I've tried to turn on to the game got really annoyed of how long it took to get someone to play back (especially in friendlies apparently).

I think the players who have been playing for a while are the ones who will be most effected, because new players won't know the difference, they will learn it as a 2 day time limit.

My initial 3 day limit vote was predicated on essentially "but what if you are on vacation or traveling, sometimes 2 days is too short." And now, I can't help, but think 2 days because if someone cares enough about their W/L, and they know they'll only have two days to play and may not be able to do that, then they will need to plan ahead, or make it work. Those that normally take 4+ days to play now probably don't care much about their W/L, so they won't care that their games will time out in that scenario.

If people are worried about forgetting, set up notifications to tell you when you have a game. The change will not be a tough one to adapt to and I think the faster games will actually attract more people while also making the game more enjoyable.

One question, is it possible to make it so that if your random 2v2 partner times out you don't take a hit on your rank? This is a question I've had for a long time. Would it be difficult to program something like that?
