PvP Pet Battle Delays change **FINALLY**

Postby Dragonwizard » June 17th, 2013, 5:57 am

So it seems they are finally doing something about the people who like to stall in battles.

PvP Pet Battle Delays
This is actually something we're planning to address in Patch 5.4. Simply put, round timers in PvP Pet Battles will get progressively shorter for a player who takes more than 15 seconds to issue a command during their turn. This change is planned to take effect in a future PTR build, so please be sure to test it out and share your feedback with us!

Good. Though I only ran I to 1 person whi tried to stall and when he realized I wasn't leaving, he forfeited.

The only thing I was worried about was sometimes due to the sudden location changes my video card tweaks out - this keeps me from losing more than a round (usually pet pick).

Good move, Blizzard.

I've been on both sides of this, though my delays were not intentional (kid fell out of bed so had to AFK) and can honestly say I've only been victim to this 2 or 3 times. I just waited him out, and claimed the wins... slowly :P

The change is good though, but what happens when the timer reaches a zero count? insta-turns for your team so you can spam attacks and nail them faster?
