Hi all,
It seems there is some sort of bug in the Express Automated Fun tournaments. I'm declaring, it's my turn to play and I have the rest of the tricks so I claim. The opponents then take over 30 seconds to accept the claim, and I get thrown out! But I can't play any cards while the claim is pending! That means as an opponent, you can just kick out the declarer by taking time before accepting their claim. This has happened to me a couple of times now and is very frustrating. It also counts negatively towards my TCR while there was nothing I could do about it... This problem should be easily solved by pausing the 30 second rule while a claim is pending. Is this possible?

Yeah, this is a known issue.

You can cancel the claim and play a card.

Actually it should be the person not accepting the claim that should be considered on the clock that should be booted.
But at least the person making the claim shouldn't for sure.
Sarcasm is a state of mind
