The only problem I have with pause is, people always pause (most common in laggy TG) in one of those situations:
1. the game just started and I haven't even placed my two houses or queued vills, results in 10 seconds idle tc time ("sec res")
2. I'm shooting the second arrow to a boar, this means my loomless villager is now dead because he won't listen to me when I tell him to go back to tc ("sec phone")
3. I have to build a house, long pause so I forget to do it ("sec door")
4. mid mangonel shot ("sec cat")
Pausing at the beginning of the game is really annoying, changing the resolution takes about 4-5 seconds just by pressing f10 down arrow 3 times+enter and selecting new res, but ppl pause like if their lives depends on that very moment, it's a crucial time for reading map, positions and civ, the guy not only delay your first lecture but also might slow you down by that unnecessary pause in case you get mayans. Seriously if you have to change resolutions don't pause just build the 2 houses and use that time to change the resolution.
Now if you add lag to the pauses then you will experience suddenly vills loses to the boar, extreme delay while giving a command to certain units, losing battles etc.
Btw i didn't mean to the pausing warning when you try to save a game, the warning used to work for normal pauses not only when attempting to save.
Dude if you can't wait 5 damn seconds for someone to fix the resolution at the start you should consider moving to other game. Or just not play videogames at all. You have complained about 5 times already in this thread, get some manners and respect the opponent when he pauses for X reason.
And btw you might accidentally place a house on the berries if you priorize building them before fixing the resolution, because you don't see anything.
Can't you just finally reveal your voobly name so that we can all put you on ignore?it basically comes down to the 18 hrs a day player demanding a pause because he wet his pants vs the casual gamer who has time for 1 game and wont allow some nerd to dictate the flow.
Wow, some people really overvalue their time given how you clearly choose to waste it here. I could answer the door 100 times in the time some of you have been taking to post in here. I could change my resolution 1000 times in the time SouFire has spewed nonsense in here.
