Little problem: 7/31/2012 11:45:03

Level 58
I`m going on vacation for 20 days. I can only put the vacation on 10 days.

Here is the problem: I probably can`t reach any computer and even if I do, This was my last vacation :(

It is to late now, but wouldn`t it be smarter to make the vacation limit some higher. Mostly I go away for 2 weeks and I can`t get access to internet so that would be to long... I think most people go 2 weeks (or not?)

The current limits have been put into place to prevent / minimise abuse of the vacation system. It's a very delicate balance between the wishes of people going on vacation (to see the places they regularly conquer in real live :p ) and the wishes of the people who aren't going on vacation at this time (and don't want to have their games stalled too much).
While I certainly see your point, I don't think an easy solution (without unintended, negative consequences to other players) exists; the vacation system is very much a compromise.

The only "solution" I can think of is to not enter any new games if you have a vacation coming up in a week or two. Or only enter new games without autoboot and against people you know (who won't boot you if they know you didn't abandon the game, you're merely on vacation).

But I'm not sure why you are posting here - we have no power to alter it for you. Uservoice may and fizzer certainly does so try emailing him.

And I'm not 100% behind seeing games and tournements delayed for too long a time.

Email Fizzer and ask him if he can extend it for you. It's what I did earlier this year when I was going to be gone for 15 days and he said it wouldn't be a problem and to just let him know what day I wanted to come back

Did Fizzer changed his e-mail? I send an e-mail but I think he somehow didn`t get it. (I got booted from 1\4 of my games (that`s about 10)) It could have been worse but I want to know how we miscommunicated.

Sorry to al my teammates in the games.

Chances are he gets quite a lot of email, not to mention being overall busy; unless he replied saying he'd extend your vacation, I think he probably just missed your message.

Quite hilariously, there was a time to where I made state competition and as such forgot to set my vacation on Warlight, just then realizing I wouldn't be able to play my games. So I changed my password and told my best friend about it. Then we texted back and forth about what to do.

Mind you, this was before the android app. I could access Warlight on my phone, however it was incredibly frustrating to play because of the uncooperative zooming. (Imagine playing a USA Big game without being able to zoom -.-)

Quite hilariously, that best friend now plays Warlight. I guess the point of this post was to show that Nike brings a valid point. (Wow, I don't want to say that too often now.. XD)
