**Mastery Loadouts**
Due to issues related to the release of Mastery Loadouts, the "free swap" period will be extended.
The new end date will be May 1st.

Timer strategy officialy validated ?

I specify in advance it is not a post about victory or defeat. Just state of mind. you recognized on this forum that using the pause mode was not fair and not intented as a strategy that you wanted to trivialize in battleground. But you haven't done anything to fix it. And this month's node will encourage summoners to use it consistently. Dissapointed

    That's just a platitude ignoring the actual point.
    I know what the point is. People can't blame the Nodes for their own choice to try and cheat the system. Leaving the alarm off in a bank doesn't encourage people to rob it. That's a choice.

    Everyone assumes these are pause situations. The reality is that it very well most likely that his game crashed mid fight. It’s happens to me and I know it’s happened to ally mates as well. When this happens you reopen the game and the fight starts over with the missing time, so the fight will start with 50 seconds or whatever.

    My game crashed at the pre fight screen and I reloaded in time with 47 seconds left to do the fight, the result screen showed 113 seconds. So I don't think it's the crash scenario you suggest.

    Thanks for telling the truth. Too many summoners are constantly making up excuses to keep using these nasty methods. They never want improvement game.

    They will probably remove the option of pause in the upcoming update

    People who pause should just quit the game and do something else. If you have to do that to win, you don’t deserve it.

    This is not accurate. When my game crashes and reloads, it shows the actual fight time, not the full time.

    I also never said I think the pause cheat should be allowed. There are other posts where it’s obvious someone paused, and it shows the fight time of 8 seconds. I think everyone assumes if it says less than 113-116 that they paused the game. It doesn’t mean that everytime.

    You should use it, if you pause and don't fight the opponent there's a great chance of winning, 15k is a ton of points!
