I am just back from another brawl against ES where the game was lost not because of strategy, decks or anything meaningful but only because I was “autoplayed” by the never ending animations which made my turn skip (or rather it played my HB for me rather than SS).
This was despite having set the turn limit to 10 minutes…
Admittedly I could buy a more powerful computer just in order to play this game – however it does not seem a very reasonable option when all is needed is an option to skip all animations. Not make them faster, smoother, or anything: just skip.
I am not sure why this option is still not available given that I know from chats we other player that it is a common problem.
