It is, frankly, not an idea that the people at large want, and it is not an idea that works. Until it can be made to work in a satisfactory way, I oppose it.

    In addition, I would like to point out that URPG can be a lot like chess sometimes; a move made hastily and under pressure of time can fuck up an entire battle for a person. Time clause essentially proposes putting that time pressure on every turn. I do not approve.

    Well I think you kind of answered your own issues Pidge. I think that the penalty for not sending after the designated time should be forfeit of the battle. If both battlers are aware of and agree with the conditions ahead of time, I don't really see this issue with this solution

    Real life hit like a hurricane, hence the inactivity. Still dealing with it, but I'll be on more now.

    True that.

    Don't forget, a gym is slightly handicapped against the trainer, since it has same type mons. Making their rules ensures an even playing field as well as a challenge towards the trainer.

    Heck, all the oldies remember my grass gym. Sunny weather along with Chlorophyll+Powders made me a nightmare to most. But since the trainer knew this, he had ample time to prepare. I mean, it's 25% chance that you don't fall asleep, and if you bring out a fire type with flamethrower I'd be OHKO.

    So gyms are supposed to be a challenge. You need to earn the badge, not get it handed to you on a silver platter. So if you want to challenge a gym, do it on their terms. Don't want to play fast chess, then don't play. But don't go nagging that you can't get the badge you want that way.
