So... what happens if you don't decide in that 15 seconds?

The idea is that you would then be saved to the instance, just like what happens now when you down a boss, or walk into an instance with a boss already downed.

Hmm, not sure if I like the time limit then. I suppose it would be beneficial to the lazy, but it could be troublesome to those who are unable to hit "Leave Instance" within the 15 seconds, for whatever their reasons might be.

Hopefully the time IS extended, or at least, an option to suggest what time limit YOU want or not at all.

If you can't figure it out is 15 seconds, you shouldn't be there to begin with.

Ah... so people are chained to their computers, is that it Kaphik? People don't get up to use the bathroom, or answer the phone, or get wife aggro, or suddnely have the batteries of their mouse go dead at that very moment.Oh yes, people just sit around ready to make those hard decisions in just 15 seconds without any real world distractions being possible.Maybe in your perfect world, but not in reality.

@ Todd, Priorities FTW. If the doorbell rings in the middle of Thaddius... Do you immediately drop raid and run to the door? If the wife calls, do you shout back and say "5 minutes hun, is lil todd choking?" Or immediately rush off to her demands? If the battery in your mouse dies.... well quick change those batts and get back in the fight, if your group downs the boss, yay! np.This isnt one of those, we're penalising people for RL commitment things to QQ over, this is designed for folk who may get tricked into joining an instance with bosses already down or you might zone in by mistake to the wrong difficulty etc.For that, 15 seconds, is long enough.

@Fyve & BoomstickLil Todd? Pardon?You're probably right, though. Longer than 15 seconds is obviously way too much to program into the game. We should tax the developers too much into something that is way too difficult to do.Really, why would anyone want something longer, and especially on top of that, something that will default to saving you to the instance in the event that you can't click no or leave the instance in time. Real world situations never come into play when making game world decisions... never.
