Vacations let players rest a little from their games but people abuse that so post what you think here.
I don't think there are enough players who abuse vacation time to say that vacation time is a bad thing. Most players use it when they need a break, I think that's pretty fair.
Besides, those players who abuse vacation time, especially when they're losing, are only postponing the inevitable :P
I agree with Terrible, not enough members abuse the setting for it to be considered bad. Also, it is quite useful to members who actually do need the time off whether it's just taking a break or traveling.
My vacation time always kicks in on its own. Players can turin it on on purpose or what. Ahh, I am officially confused.
