Umm yeah, they do.

Also, you are a good tag teaming partner, or so I heard. ;)

I would agree with this. It seems to go very fast at the end. Maybe if there has been no casualties in the past 24 hours, it kicks whoever has been least active, however that would only come into play if it's a stalemate.

Its not about making the tourney go fast, its about forcing people to take action rather than turtle. However, the "most turns used" way of calculating it is flawed as it can essentially come down to who joined the arena first. Perhaps make it that every 12 hours it kicks one person that has used less than X amount of turns, say 3000. This way active players dont need to worry about it but it will still deal with turtles.

It's not exactly flawed. If someone joins the tourney straight up and dumps a crap load of turns on people continously, compared to someone who joins later, then they are more active than the other person. Regardless of when their timezone is.

I think the point being made is if two people join 3 days apart, and both use every single AT avalible to them, the person who joined later is automaticly removed due to spending less AT because they had less AT to spend.

even one or two hours apart. thats what it came down to last time: nearly everyone in the arena had used all of their turns as soon as they got them but bj was kicked because he joined last.
