How are people abel to challenge with the time limit being "-1", which is apparently no time limit?

Maybe my original question isn't clear enough, I don't see an answer yet.

I've had some challenges sent to me with abnormal time limits. Normally I see one, three, seven and fourteen days that turns must be turned in. In these abnormal cases the time limit is negative one day. And the turns don't expire. How is that done? Can I do that?

because some people have MAC computers instead of PC and they play in MAC version of MA.That version sucks badly and they even dont have patches installed on it.So they can't make challenge time limits and they cant auto-finish battles.
I just decline such challenges and send them my own with desired limit.

hey

let me try to nswer this in another way.

if you want your oppenent to get back to you as fast as possible preferably in less then 20 mins then -1 is the way to go.

the time out for a neg 1 game is still two weeks.

if you want to limit the game try the 3 or 7 the time out for these are 3 and 7,

you can set up a game for -1, but with the timeout still being 14 days, its a waste, id like to see that the programmers make the timeout be set to infinty, that way there is no time out out option. over 500 of my win games are due to timeouts..

That's not entirely correct. I have played against several mac players and they and their challenges works like supposed.

Currently I have atleast 1 game going on against mac player and he challenged me and turn limit is 14 days.
