Yes but if you want something doing you need to remind people at every opportunity.
It makes no sense that you can’t even have the full range of EGF Class A Fischer timed matches on OGS and one would hope the fix is trivial. Even if you can’t remove the Fischer max you could just make it higher than it is now.
I’m inclined to agree. Unfortunately, anoek doesn’t (I forget why exactly).
So, according to this open GitHub issue, anoek is closed to the idea of removing the cap, but is open to the idea of extending the cap beyond its current point, however there has apparently not been enough discussion about this to convince him it is sufficiently desired by the general community. So yeah I guess keep bitching about it making rational arguments for your case until he agrees to fix it
I’m disheartened to see that thread is almost 2 years old now… it didn’t feel that long ago…
Well I mean if we’re just waiting on a suggestion for a better upper limit then I’ll have a think and suggest something unless @Harleqin beats me to it.
My starting point would be allowing 65m+5s to be played without crashing into the limit. So maybe assuming that each move is played in 2s you might get about 15m extra after 300 moves. So a limit of 2hrs would be enough (and allowing 65m initially, I can’t remember just now if the starting limit is also 1hr). I’ll have a think about other combinations that meet Class A standards.
If anoek doesn’t think that ogs should be able to host EGF class A timed games properly then there’s not much discussion to be had though.
Can I dream of a full possible options system from 1s to infinite and then for some understandable reasons, a automatic filter which would stamp the game as blitz live or correspondence and as being rated or not?
I mean from what else as the rating system do we have to restrain the possibilities?
I know anoek has stated literal infinity is not an option, but I don’t think anyone asking for “infinite” max time in live games is really asking for that: just set some high max time which will never be reached and that will be just as good.
