Or just join only tournaments with 30 days per game, i.e. 15 days per player. That should be enough time for most games.

Congratulations to the organization, The arena tournament I really like, but one thing I find absolutely unfair is that when someone leaves the game even I lose points, it happened to me today twice, two players dropped out and I lost points too
This. It's still not in the FAQ, although Roundrobin is there as tournament type for quite a while now.Pedros wrote: ↑08 February 2019, 04:52Hi admins. I was just checking FAQs in case one particular tournament rule had changed (it hadn't!) but I noticed some important out of date info there. In particular "types of tournament" doesn't include round robins, which are pretty frequent; but more especially "Things to check before registering" needs to include a warning about Fast Turn-based games and Playing Times.
Hope this helps.
Also agree with including a warning about fast turn-based games and playing time.
And a question while I'm at it: why does this tournament: https://boardgamearena.com/tournament?id=41055 have 1 winner, a runner up and a person on third place, while there's in fact 4 people with the exact same score. So I was assuming they'd get first place all 4 of them. How does the system decide who gets first place in such case?
Thanks for the quick reply.
That seems as unfair as it gets to me. If anything, it would make sense to do it the other way around. In the same vein as where in case of a tie sometimes level of adversaries plays a role: in case of a tie, the player with the highest level of adverseries in that tournament wins. Same can be said about date of registration: the longer the adversaries have been around, the more likely they have good experience with a certain game and with board games in general.
I really don't like that rule to be honest. What's wrong with several people sharing the first spot in this case?
