And for those who are concerned about duels, keep in mind that duels can be extended to 2 rounds (so 48 hours). It's not necessary to find a time to duel within just 24 hours, it simply saves in-game actions if you do.

I don't think the issue is whether WoE takes up too much time in one day. 10 minutes to 40, depending on your paranoia & nooibishness level, isn't too much to ask.

However, it presumes that logging in on a daily basis is the normal and anyone else is slow. People who have to skip the occasional day can feel like they're letting their teams down. I'd rather people had 48 hours in which to live their lives, do their stuff, play their real game (Elements), and then squeeze in a bit of time for this sub-game on a forum.

Only just noticed this thread o:

Anyway, we all check the game daily to not miss an Oracle spin, yes?
Well then what's wrong with doing your WoE stuff at that same moment? Shouldn't take long and can thus easily be done daily.
It takes a bit longer in tutorial mode alright, but shouldn't be such a time eater once it gets rolling.

Voted 24 hours if that isn't obvious by now.

I really dont see how saying "takes 10 min" or "takes 30 min" to do your actions is a valid argument? So what? maybe some people take 2 hours? Real life has been mentioned plenty by others saying 48 hours would work best because you cant just assume everyone has 10 mins or 30 mins or w/e time to get to a computer and get online and do elements stuff. theres been plenty of times where i couldnt get to doing elements anything for days on end. 48 hours would give everyone more time to get battles done and coordinated, gives SG a small break in time so she isnt doing this nonstop, and makes it more of a casual game. yes i know many will be on every single day, good for them. give em a cookie.

I do like the idea of "everyone has their actions submitted" day is over... move on.. so then days can kinda go quicker but it may throw off the natural day timing unless SG decides what time to post next days quests etc.

The problem with this is that advancing a day is currently a very manual process. We can't expect SG or whoever is in charge to constantly be checking to advance to the next day once all actions have been submitted. Plus, it seems quite unlikely that there will be a single day where all participants submit actions.

I voted for 24 hours because the whole point of WoE is that it works like an MMORPG, where the biggest consequence to not logging on for a few days is that your progress is put on hold. Not a big deal. Also, I agree with everyone else who has said that 48 hours should be plenty for battles.

48 hours. Communication with other team members in different timezones spends a day already.

I already played such games (PHP games) with turns of 12 hours or 24 hours, and this time is by far enough to play with a team, you just need to think a bit ahead, to avoid being surprised.
But the duels, in 24h, seem like impossible to me. Even 48h could be hard. I voted 48h so, with the 96h possibility for extended duel.

I picked 48 hours, so I would be able to form the best strategy to play, and school is pretty stealing my time. I'm having a mid term test in a week time, and I'm not a bright student, so I would need to spend more time on studies.

I am torn between 24 and 48 hours as well. 24 works for me because I am very active, but I understand that it doesn't for some people. 48, on the other hand, is way too slow - that's how it felt in Alpha, at least. It became slightly dull.

Voted for 24. If it doesn't work out, we can always change to 48.
This is EXACTLY the thought process behind voting for 24. I wanted 36, because it's not 2 whole days, which was WAY too slow, but it also allows for a bit more freedom. Because in my view, longer is much worse than shorter, I've had to change my vote from 36 to 24.

36 would be stupid. Not only would alternate days start and end at different times but people like me who can only get online during one specific timeslot every day would only benefit every other elements day. Frankly, even alternating 24/48 hour days would be preferable to the 36 option.

If you get on during the same time slot every day, that time slot would be covered whether the limit is 24 hours, 25hours, 29 hrs, 36 hrs, 9001 hrs, etc. Would it not..?

Indeed it would. What I'm saying is that it would effectively be alternating between 24 hours and 48 hours for me if that option were picked and that is just annoying.
