Possession + time out (resign)
« on: 18 September 2017, 07:30:00 AM »

I just met the following Possession abuse:
User "redacted" took Possession over my cards and didn't make any move. Then after timeout it he resigned me forcibly.

I think this is a bug.

oh that doesn't sound good. We'll look into what causes this. Thanks for reporting.

I checked this on a test server, and it behaved as follows:

Player A plays Possession on player B. Next turn, A posseses B. But both players don't do anything in that possession turn. After some time, player B (the real one) gets asked if he wants to resign player A.

This seems like the intended behavior: Player A has to make decisions (even though it is formally player B's turn), and since he doesn't make them in time, the other player (B) can make him resign.

So probably something else played a role in the game user11 mentioned. user11, can you find out the game number of that game? I couldn't find "user11" as a game name, so I can't look myself.
