We just had an interesting game going with 3 players (the best zinke, sallassa and myself). It went this way and that without a decision and then, after 100 rounds, there were forced resigns by the number of lands at that time.
Is 100 rounds a hard limit introduced to avoid table-blocking as done by the proxies a while ago?
Has it been announced anywhere?

Ive put auto-end on a couple times when i played AI bot and there were islands. We got to 100 rounds.
A few years ago I recall the cap being 299 rounds, which I got to with a similar situation where someone with an island on the map just put auto end on hoping I'd sit out after they lost.

my uneducated guess is that it's just a newly implemented way of preventing those tourney hijacks/table blocks we used to see some months/years back.
