An Example of the Problem:
In the first round of this tournament:
MaurizioN’s first opponent (doskee(B)), joined their game, played the first move and then went to watch other games in the tournament because opponent appeared to be a no-show. The anti-escaper feature awarded the win to the absent player, MaurizioN, by resignation and they both continued into the next round.
MaurizioN was saved from a TO loss in the first round. A TO loss would have removed MaurizioN from the tournament. As a result, Round 2 involved six players and only one actual game of Go.
Anti-escaper feature/timer should only apply after both players have played in the game. This would allow the present player to rely on the move indicator to alert them if their opponent shows up.
