Resume match timer
« on: March 13, 2013, 05:40:05 am »
Is there any way to cancel the resume timer?

When I join a match lobby I quickly swap to spectator so I can see what the ship loadouts are and get a feel for the balance of the game.  Sometimes this means that I'll be catapaulted into the game as a spectator because the start timer was running down.  If I abandon match to rejoin and choose a position I'm then on the 180 second resume timer, and any attempt to go back into the match puts me back as spectator.

Is there a way to cancel the timer and resume to the crew roster list?

I noticed this too.  It's caused me to be dropped into matches with bad/mixed equipment.  Heck, I might not even have a Role active that she ship I get assigned to needs.  It would be nice to be considered as "not currently having joined any team" when entering a new room manually just so that I have a few seconds to orient myself.

Yes, it's a sneaky trick but if you spectate another ongoing match and back out; you can rejoin the original one however you'd like without waiting 180 seconds.

If you just have bad equipment but the correct role you can simply press esc, abaandon match, change your equipment and resume. I do this all the time when I forget to take the right tools when the ship has changed.
