Please put a timer for all PVP matches

The only time I would support a timer on PvP matches is if it kicks in after x minutes of inaction i.e. neither side does any damage for x minutes then a warning that the match will end in x more minutes if fighting does not resume. That would help stop one side hiding out and just trying to bore the other side to death.
Nothing wrong with a PvP match lasting 45 minutes or more (potential health issues aside), I've been in some epic matches where both sides were evenly matches and the match seems to last forever - its almost sad when it ends.
The contest is the reward in PvP, not the emblems or XP, half the time I don't even know which PVP daily is running on any given day, I just take whatever pops first.
Having said all that, I'll admit to there being times when I really wished a match would just end due to real life issues intruding (I hate to go AFK / quit mid match).
