For tournaments I always presume:
- - Auto boot, so Teams both would not fix the Tourney into passive status!
- - No Vacations, to keep the phase!
- I am not going with the "Read-settings before join" truvism! I like the idea of Vacations, and I even would like to have them in my games, but I feel that 10 days and one can take multiple in row, would just ruin it if happened - especially regarding matches with 20+ players. On other hand I do not think the 1-turn requirement between Vacations would solve the issue? 70 days = 6 turns passed? Not much of progress to end most of games.
I never understood why vacations are countable, but not total days per year!
=> If it would be counted Total of Days, then Host could determine what is the max number one particular game can be held "Passive" via vacation. Like total of 20-days!, then no vacations allowed furthermore!
=> Although When playing with friends, trusted players, auto-boot and booting and being on clock loses its meaning totally!
