    Hi, I'd like to know that because in the manual it is said that you do not choose the turn timer setting when you play Ranked Match or Custom Quick Match.

    Best regards,

    I am suprised no one has answered yet. Yes, there is a timer, either a 30 or 60 second one.

    Humm, so you can choose the timer to be 30 or 60 seconds?

    Yeah, how do you choose the length of the timer in ranked games? I've missed that option...

    You can't. It is exactly 60 seconds and is chosen for every ranked match.

    Good lord... a time limit in a turn-based game?

    I don't think I could enjoy the game with a time limit like that. :(

    It's a time limit from when the first person has finished his turn (AI not accounted for), so each turn can last an eternity if nobody finishes.

    It's also a way to force a short turn if you are in trouble of a enemy moving large forces towards you, but keep in mind if you do he has a full minute where he can do stuff and you can't. So finishing first is not necessarily a good thing.
