I am a bit surprised that they are THAT strict. I was thinking along the same lines as David where even with a 30 second "time limit" you'd have closer to 45 seconds.
Though honestly if I ever got to stage 3 of Sasuke I don't believe I'd need something ridiculous like 2 minutes to rest or anything. I'd wanna keep going so I don't run out of adrenaline. I think 30 seconds may be a little too short though. I think 45 would be just right.
Yeah it's a 99+% chance of both of these things being true. In the other thread though I acted like I have no idea who those 2 are just to keep from spoiling it for those who didn't watch the ANW2 finals. That's the main reason why I did that obviously, but it's also fun to deceive people.
