Add on Period time extension

Post by pleaseadddrawgames »

Other sites allow more than 60 seconds for the add on break.
Is this something already there or something you can add?
I would like to make it 3 minutes versus 60 seconds.

If you time your breaks so that one starts when the rebuy period ends, the add-on period will be extended to equal the break length. Otherwise it just inserts a 1-minute break period for the add-on.

I completely second that request!

I have timed my breaks with the add-on - but it really forces you into exactly how you have to do the breaks in order to match it up to when the add-on happens - instead of just being able to do your breaks every hour - and the add-on happens after a certain amount of levels. Sometimes we pause the game to explain something - and that alone will throw off the breaks and the add-on syncing up.

Please everyone - he judges what changes to make by how many people agree with a suggestion or post about it - so if you are reading this - and you want more than 60 seconds for people to do the add-on without having to force time it to one of the scheduled breaks - please comment here!
:)

thanks all.

Yes, this would be a nice feature to be able to actually set the time for the add-on and the length of time a player has to rebuy if they get knocked out.

That's equal to your "Turn clock" setting for that tournament so it is configurable. And the play completely stops at that table until that player decides so you typically wouldn't want it any longer than that.

That's exactly why the request is to be able to have the amount of time to add-on and to rebuy be separate from the other settings.
So that we can keep the turn clock at 20 seconds - and make the rebuy decision at 40 seconds if so desired.

Same with the add-on - would be soooo helpful not to have to force the breaks to happen at a certain point in just in order to give the add-on extra time.

Thanks Kent!!
