While playing in a tournament there are two different timers on every game:
- Shot Timer
This is how much time you have to take your shot, and is affected by the Time Power of your cue, and also how many balls you've potted in that game. You get less time when you're on the black than when all your balls are still on the table, for example. This timer is located around the edge of your Profile Picture.
When the blue line goes orange you need to be quick to make your shot! If you run out of time your opponent will have the turn with the "Ball in Hand".
- Total Game Timer
This is the total time each player has overall to finish the game, and is located on the left side of your Experience Bar. Both players have 2 minutes to win the game.
The circle depletes whenever it's your turn. As soon as you've taken your shot, your timer stops and your opponent's timer starts. If your timer runs out, you are “timed out” and automatically lose the game regardless of how many balls you’ve potted up to that point. This is to encourage attacking play, and also ensure that other players in the tournament don’t have to wait too long for you to finish the game.
Note that when your Total Game Timer is almost depleted, your Shot Timer will run out extremely quickly! This is because you only have a few seconds left to complete the game before you’re timed out.
Make sure you plan your shots well and make every single one count!
