  • Low Priority Matchmaking Pool Bug

    (Removed some fluff from my orginal post

    I got disconnected from 1 game. I come back and see the message about low priority matchmaking. Ok my fault for not trying to reconnect after my internet went out.

    Then later in the night my internet went out AGAIN! This time I was able to reconnect. I logged in, played for a bit and we won. RIGHT at the end when the main structure was being destroying, the internet went out AGAIN! This time I thought "Heck we already won, its 3am, Im just gonna goto bed"

    I log into today and it says I have ANOTHER DAY!!!!

    I think the mechanics for abandoning a match should be extended.

    -IF you win and disconnect before the ladder board comes up, no penalty should be given
    -IF you reconnect to a game after the 5 min, there should be no penalty. It took my internet roughly 10 min to come back up.
    -Player reports should not be allowed to punish. You'll have a group of elitist jerks that think a player is bad, blames them for trying to learn the game, and will LIE to the other team and try to win over "punishment votes" from them.
    -Using the steamid, the mechanic can tell whether your still logged in after leaving Dota2(ex. Did player abandon game? Is player still logged into steam?). Steam takes a couple minutes to register users go offline sometimes. So the server could probably check if you log back during some defined interval. If you log back in and not playing dota you get punished(ex. Did player reconnect? Is player playing Dota? Did player reconnect to abandoned game?)
