Again this should be left to the waiting player so if they like what they’ve been doing they can opt to allow more time for the player to return after a REASONABLE match suspension countdown that will give the player kicked enough time to reconnect. During this standby countdown the timeout gauge can freeze wherever it was when they were kicked. Once the kicked player’s match suspension countdown is up, the player still connected can opt to allow the opponent more time to reconnect since they will know their opponent has been kicked due to the shift from timeout countdown to suspension countdown, and know they have yet to reconnect bc the game will still be paused. Once the player reconnects the timeout countdown can pursue indicating that the player is back and they still have the same amount of time remaining to finish their turn they were in the middle of when booted. If the timeout counter expires twice, or once(if the player was kicked after a first timeout had been taken) then force them to concede. If the player that wasn’t kicked doesn’t like his chances then let them opt to call a draw and no losses go towards anyone’s elimination, nor do they gain any further wins that count towards what price tier they reach. If I was winning a match and was suddenly kicked only to return and find that the match had been called a draw I’d be fine with that. Frustrated sure, but wouldn’t feel like I just had potential gems stolen from my account that I could have won if an overwhelming advantage wasn’t just spoon fed to my opponent. And u want people to play this in hopes of gaining entry into a championship while u continue to steal matches away from them? Not likely. I’ll be expecting my 1000 gems refunded to my account and another 1000 gifted to every player wouldn’t be a terrible idea as I’m certain every player has suffered this very same thing more times than they can count on one hand.
