    Proposal: Make tournament players leave draft room during tournament

    Hi there

    I am playing Alpha since day one, and one thing I really miss since you installed sealed deck/draft: There is no possibility to leave the draft room without forfeit the draft

    I guess everbody knows that feeling: You get a bye, or you just crushed your opponent 2 times (ok maybe he just did not found more than two shards in two games, but anyway ) and than you have to wait for about 30-45 minutes till next round starts. Boooring!

    Of course you can surf the internet or do something else outside HEX, but WHY not just let us leave the draft room and do some games in Proving grounds, construct a new deck, just enjoy looking at your cards, open booster packs or whatever!

    Guess its a win/win situation: We stay more on the game (and buy maybe a lot of booster packs during that time! $$$) and don't get bored to death during the wait.

    Small step for HEX, but a big step for player community! I hope at least

    Greetings

    Cory has talked a lot about how much he loves draft, and about how much he hates waiting around doing nothing during draft, so you can be sure they will be working on this feature if the CEO is pushing it.

    Cory is CCO not CEO, but yeah, they've said there will be "multi-tasking" available at some point in the future.

    I really like the idea of being able to play the AI or better yet, PvE. Since it's AI, you can leave at a moments notice and it not even matter.

    Has it been mentioned if PvE will actually "save state" in between an individual match so that when you came back later you would be EXACTLY where you left off?

    Check out this recent interview: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G9TsHWtT2-w

    Somewhere in there (sorry don't have time to find the exactly time) Cory mentions exactly that, that since it's AI the server just saves the state of the game and you can come back later.
    Great interview too.

    Excellent video and, for the record, the part about the AI and PvE between PvP matches can be found @ 22:12.
