Maybe they should make it actually legible... I'm tired of seeing words that look like fake/take/make/lake, and failing -_- Make them words that are actually semi-legible while still doing your precious anti-botting!

personally no problem here with reading... just need a time extention against lag

f's have a tail, t's do not.

If you timeout on the first botcheck, do you get a chance on the second one? Or is it two minutes total for both tries?

If it's the latter, we could just make it the former. That would give still 2 minutes for one botcheck, but you actually get your two chances.

I think you fail the botcheck if you time out on the first one...

Yeah, around 1am I got a botcheck and very nearly timed out trying to get it. I gave it a while to load, got tired of waiting, tried to "view image" as that occasionally works, failed there, tried my next trick which is to cancel and try fighting another team, failed.
I even restarted my browser to try to get the botcheck up, but I guess they come up when they are ready.

Download less things while playing cb ;)

"week i think... can we please get an extention on the botcheck time? like maybe 4mins?"

I suggested the same a while ago and got nothing but a smart alec remark in return.

"Maybe they should make it actually legible..."

This is the number one reason why I fail botchecks. Sometimes you just can't read the bloody thing.

Shade, I may be up/downloading but only at about 10k/s.
I think that my 1-off anecdote may have been due to something going on at the CB end this time because while the bot-checks always come up a lot slower than the rest of the site for me, this time the whole site was having issues for me while anywhere else I tried was fine.
I think that the issue is that the bot-checks are slower than regular content for CB, so if there is "lag" the bot-check is hit hardest and really, that's the only place it matters.
