Yep. I see that there is a need for shorter battles, but there is also need for longer battles. I hope mopobattles can fill that need.

And we will abort the battles in queue if needed. I hope everybody understands this. It doesn't matter whose battle it is.

Thanks Bjenn :) We could do it like this: If the designer is online 30-15 mins before the mopobattle should start, I can give the level to him/her and then he/she can start it; otherwise I will start it myself.

If the designer is online and starts the battle, maybe I can play the battle too =)

Re: Times visible in cups?

If we want hidden times, then mila has to fix this bug:
You can see the best times by pressing shift+f5 and then re-entering the level.
Because if that bug exists, there is no sense trying to hide the times at all.

Also notice that even if times were visible, you can still hide yourself from others.
