Nohing personal, but you as well as other people seem to think that a timeout is a bad thing (since you state that if they were playing better, games wouldn't time out). Why?

Many tables with excellent players will time out because they neutralize each other. The best player will try to maximize his points anyway.

The game wasn't designed to time out it was designed for people to die!

In my experience tables that finish in timeouts are usually the ones with wall deck(s). If there is more than one on the table it's almost always a case. If there is any increase in timeouts (which I doubt) I would blame Eyes of Argus not Villein + Lilith blessing

Timeouts are bad things and I don't mean for vtesdom at large so much as for the players who are denied the opportunity to take the table. Excellent players they may be, but they aren't playing their best when the table goes to time. The only time you want to go to time is if that's the only way to get the win.

The game wasn't designed with a time limit.

Timeouts are bad things

Why? You give no argument.
