    So right now, if one was to win Skychat twice consecutively they would suffer a 25-30 min cooldown period - in which they may not participate in Skychat.

    I feel that this cooldown is quite harsh for only winning two rounds of Skychat. Many people play for an hour or so, and a 30min cooldown would occupy a large chunk of that time.

    My suggestion would be to either:
    1) Lower cooldown time - Perhaps lowering the time to around 15 mins would be a bit better.
    2) Increase winning threshold - Instead of having to win only 2 rounds this could be increased to around 5 rounds.

    I understand the reasoning for the cooldown - so players don’t win absurd amounts of grass when the server is less busy. But the harsh cooldown really takes the fun out of the competition, when there are multiple people trying to win Skychat.

    I was not aware we had a cooldown, but if that is the case support for a lower cooldown time. :D

    Doesnt the cooldown end instantly after someone else wins it?

    The cool down is random sometimes it’s 5 minutes sometimes it’s 10
    This is to prevent people from being able to guess the time till the next one, I also believe if you win you can’t win the next round this stops people from using bots to just win all the time.

    No

    Yes

    The cooldown is just so you can’t win 3 times in a row. I’m not sure if time is involved, but I am always able to win two, then get a cooldown on the third and win the fourth.

    Don’t think this is true, my cooldowns are consistently 30mins. From my experience I don’t think they are randomised.

    Just tested this out in game and yes it’s true. So when the server is busy and many people are participating in Skychat the cooldown time is not an issue. Still might be when the server is less busy though.

    Support, I wasn't aware this was a thing...

    I'd suggest keeping it consecutive as the threshold for the cooldown, but maybe have it randomly 5 or 10 minutes instead.

    the cooldown isnt really 30 minutes. It is simply one or two skychats after it tells you to wait.

    this is true. i don't think the timer is all too accurate.

    There is a cooldown timer - for me it’s always 30mins even though it should be random.

    What Hugos said is correct, if you’re on a cooldown and someone else wins Skychat your cooldown is nullified.

    Neutral but leaning to support

    I think the sky chat cooldown should be 15 minutes

    Yep, the cooldown is no longer a issue for me, I made this thread because I didn’t know it was nullified once someone else wins Skychats.

    Ask the staff to lock the thread then.
