Three Elekk Plushie PvP Team

Postby Minet » February 15th, 2017, 8:31 pm

Has anyone else run into this? The player never makes any moves and lets the timer run down on every round.

What would you guys do? Concede? Or play it out. I've been playing them out, but I'm torn.

They attempt to win by exhaustion..

Blizzard really needs to change battles, so 3x timeout = auto forfeit.
There really is no excuse for timeout; you have three different moves and a pet swap. It's not something you need to ponder on for a long time.

In Hearthstone, you loose after 3 turns without making any moves, and that's a game with infinitely more moves to do per turn..

That said: No, I haven't run into it, simply because I don't PvP.. :lol: :lol:

You don't PVP, but your avatar is Graves lol.
Sorry, just thought that was ironic.

Also, it's not totally unheard of from being timed out yourself.
Yes, you only have 8 options (you forgot switching to pets 2 or 3, forfeiting and passing), but sometimes it can be terribly hard to decide a plan in the paltry time given. And sometimes you have to crunch numbers quickly to determine the best coarse of action, especially if you're using pets you're not familiar with.

But I agree with Fuxie, there's no excuse for three straight rounds of no action taken.
A resulting forfeit is completely appropriate.

I would be tempted to see how long I could prolong the match by passing and pet swapping. But it is probably a bot.

Throughout WoD, Graves was arguably *THE* best and most overused pet in all of PVP pet battles.
Not to mention he isn't exactly "cute", nor was he an outstanding PVE pet at all.
Hence my surprise someone would represent him who never PVPs.
But hey, different strokes for different folks.

In fact, I just read a thread on the offical forums about this team. I guess I missed it the first time I was poking around for it. Anwyay, someone suggests doing just this. I hadn't tried this because, like you, I thought it was a bot. However, the poster said that if you do what you suggest, they do eventually forfeit and then forfeit quicker if they run into you again. Worth a shot, anyway. Also, someone said they did report it and got an answer suggesting that something might be done.

Others say they just battle it out, which is what I've been doing. Tab out and read something interesting while coming back to attack every minute or so.

I suffered countless hours upon hours of HotS, only because he is so cute..
