Here is my question : should matches be played with or without time limit ? Both have pros and cons. I can't really answer to this myself, I have too much opinioins on both sides of the story

Please, if you can argue your answer, do so

The "true" rule is play with no time limit. We happen to play games with time limit only because I forget to remove it before the game starts. So, no, no time limit.

On the other hand, lately I can't stand playing instagib more than 5mins, so I would say yay for time limit :>

But basically, my answer is no.

EDIT : btw, your question and your answers are kinda unrelated :> Wanna play with or without ? Yes ! Sounds like fail

my answer would be "basically yes" in the first place, coz otherwise the match can take ages. An partly appropriate alternative to this would be a sufficient small scorelimit, but this on the other hand could end in very short matches, which i would dislike, too.
But it may also depend on the enemy and the surroundings. E.g. during a tournament, i.e. where losing a game basically means quitting the tournament, a team is rather willing to camp in order to win, than in a fw or regular cw. And there are teams which sometimes tend to camp and teams which don't.
So in the end: this question can not be answered satisfiable in general, but only while considering the circumstances...

My personal opinion:
In tournaments: yes
In CW's: rather yes
in FW's: don't care

Then, playing with no time limit kinda prevents the excessive camping, if I follow your thoughts. Isn't it a good thing ? :>

If the game takes ages, there should be rules to change the settings of the game during the game, that every player would be aware of. Or something.

like some referee who can decide to add a time limit if he detects camping ?

I'm 200% sure this won't work with such a community :>

I was thinking of some established ground rules, like "if the game exceeds 25mins, then one player of the current winning team must leave the game"

NOTE : it is NOT a good idea, it's just an example. Please don't make me read some "omg no Tho we can't do that you're insane but we could do .." Cut it to the "we could do" part.

Forget it.

I see 7 votes, please people make an effort to post your opinions.. I know it's hell of hard to press keys on a keyboard, but it's still doable with some little good will.

I'm on the way of Zongo.

To go more than that 7 words, I think there is two paths :
-without time limite : move or die had to be activated.
-with time limite : move or die isn't an obligation

I do not think this is an end in itself but don't see other way...

Well, that why i vote "with".

the only thing confusing me in no-timelimit setting is the question of endurance. ) im not sure that im that hard-muffin guy that wouldnt be bored after 25mins of playing.

hm i think its better with timelimit

Why?
I think it would be the best to make a very long timelimit,
so that nearly all matches are finished before the limit,
but you instead can be shure that the match will not take toooo long.

i'd prefer no timelimit, i think the time should not finish a match.

maybe its 7:3 and then the other team wins, but with the timelimit maybe not
