Hovering opponents lands will let them timeout
There is a guaranteed way to win every game.
During your opponents turn you start hovering over the opponents lands very quickly. this will prevent them from getting priority (or it just lags really hard). But the problem is that the timeout timer is still starting to run and will continue to do so. So you can force the opponent to time out each turn. by doing this you can win each game.
I think this is a serious bug which can be easily abused. You don't need anything to assist you in annoying this to your advantage. You just need to move there mouse with your bare hands.
There are already reports on this issue via ingame reports and at least one player (ingame name "Ozon") is actively abusing this on the ladder. see https://www.twitch.tv/videos/760497941?t=01h35m14s
Had this happen to me today against the player PieceMaker.
This happened to me yesterday in ranked draft as well. Player Ozon started to do it after they were clearly in the losing position and after searching for the topic online I found players discussing an incident where Ozon was abusing this bug as well to win in the Qualifier Weekend this past weekend. Numberous people posted evidence that Ozon is abusing this bug at least for a year and I think this person should be banned for cheating and the underlying software issue needs to be solved as soon as possible! Many players will stop playing if it's not dealt with and the brand of Magic Arena as an esport will take huge hits from this making waves. I'll upload my video evidence of it here as well. PLEASE BAN OZON!

This bug should be fixed. And the players abusing it should be banned.
This is still happening, and the same person is still abusing it (Ozon). I reported this yesterday during the Arena Weekend Day 1 and the loss was removed from my run, but still this person needs to be permanently banned
The player Ozon is still abusing this exploit. Ban them!
Ths happend to mee today. It is stil not fixed and the player keeps doing this, same player: Ozon.
Is there a way to contact WotC
This is what the log records when this happens. Just had my opponent actively exploiting this in Ranked Ladder.
Although this hover entry is a normal log entry, when this non-interaction hover is performed excessively it causes the game match to lag and players to timeout.
Met this dude also in ranked. Played normal until he would clearly lose the game. Then he started the bot action, hovering my lands and I lost the game because I timedout. Please fix this and kick this cheater from arena.
I can totally confirm this Bug. After seeing the Predi Stream I startet a game with a friend and could reproduce it multiple times.
As soon as the opponent has 4 lands just moving the mouse quickly over his lands will overload his client so much that he cant play anything and his timer will run out. The more lands the opponent has the easier it gets since you hit more lands with the same movement.
Please get this fixed ASAP!
