This so-called "feature" ruins co-op games even more than disconnects. Now we never get to have epic 2v5 or 3v5 games.

The disconnect issue should rather be solved by putting people in a co-op version of the leaver pool for a short duration. I know bot games are there to learn the game, but learning not to leave when things don't go your way is a very important skill in Dota.

If people only want to test out shit or have the option to leave at any time they should play practice games. Speaking of which there should really be a feature added to lobbies to specify that we only want to fill the opposing side's slots with bots.
