First of all, thanks for sharing your opinion on Clash of Code. And to everyone, even if we do not always reply to your comments, they are taken into consideration.
Basically, the idea was to end the clash faster so that the same people can clash again together. In practice, people don't wait anyway and go to another clash or leave... So, maybe we should reconsider that if the majority thinks that reducing the time is not fun.
We thought it could be fun: people can decide to submit in order to rush their opponents.
Again, Clash of Code is still a beta, so things can change (but I can't tell you now what will, the team need to agree on the changes first). We would love to hear everyone's point of view and ideas to improve the game.
