The pause timer glitch is ruining this game.

SDS

Another day, another multiple instances of being ahead of another player and they hit pause and let the timer run out with no fear of forfeit. This is a huge issue that makes me not even want to play if I have to keep taking losses for games that should be wins.

SDS

What do you mean? If they run out of pause time they do forfeit in games I’ve been playing? I haven’t seen this bug personally.

SDS

huh? have never run into this.

You win when this happens.

Unless there is a glitch or unless you got tricked and they sent a friendly as the clock hit zero and you quickly hit accept but then it's a friendly not an L.

Are you not getting the dialogue box after the their time runs out? I forget exactly what it says, but you can either keep waiting or forfeit the game for them. You click that button to make them forfeit, and you win. As far as I know there is no glitch.

People let the timer run down to zero and send a friendly quit. Beware

While the individuals who commit to attempt this type of cheese should be held accountable (they wont, it is the internet after all), I do believe that this is a lesson in patience and reading.

I have said for years that I have no idea why SDS doesn’t just put a second promt that says “Are you sure you want to friendly quit?” This is such a simple fix & would completely end this desperate tactic.

This happened to me once and I didn't fall for it, but there was some weirdness to the way both messages actually overlaid on my screen and I squinted just hard enough to work out that something wasn't right. My understanding from a previous report on the issue is that for some people it's impossible to see the underlying message about the friendly quit and only the message about the timer is visible, but somehow the fq is accepted when the button is pressed. OP may not have been able to prevent this happening depending how the messages were displaying on his screen. I think in my case the user attempting to get me to press incorrectly messed up his timing a bit, but if the timing is perfect I think the glitch is the way both messages exist on the screen simultaneously, and that shouldn't really happen.

This right here is one of things about MP that burns my @ss.This is an exploit that determines win or loss but they wanna focus on crybaby R2 complaint, while things like this take a backseat.

Did this to a poor Xbox kid in the event last week. So satisfying!!!!!! 😁

SDS

no i mean like on xbox, the pause timer never runs out. when it hits zero, i hit x to make them forfeit and the pause timer starts again at 2:30. must be an xbox thing.

I'm on playstation and never seen this. Maybe its an Xbox thing like you already stated. Bizarre but beware of the friendly quit scam right before the opponents timer runs out. Desperate people play that game and it works on new players who don't read the full message that prompts on the screen.

Lmao this is hysterically bad

Its a thing, for me seems to be related to cross play. Played a Playstation player last week, he let the timer run to zero, when it hits zero and asks if you want to forfeit your opponents game and you hit yes it simply restarts the pause timer to 3 minutes. Went on about 12 minutes before it finally worked.

What would make you wanna do this to someone in an event game? He gets screwed out of a win and you don’t benefit from it - am I missing something?

He is begging for attention, and you just gave it to him.

Happened to me 3 times last week playing br. 2 of them never ended and I gave up. The last one the guy messaged me trying to pretend like he was kicked and tried to get me to quit. Waited an hour and a half and the a hole started the game trying to catch me off guard when I didn't respond to a message. This game is full of scumbags
