  • Disconnecting shouldn't remove your items

    As a player with a wooden computer, I crash sometime. It's extremely annoying when I reconnect to the game only to find all of my items gone.
    Stop taking my items! Losing money - okay, but items? come on, I can never farm that gap.
    ༼ つ◕_◕༽つ give items!

        If you find spelling errors, you are free to take them.

          While I understand the point, I always found it annoying. I have some 1 out of 50 games where the player returns (even nastier if it was the main carry or the tank) and he just insta-leaves afterwards (no point playing a 40 minute game with no items, let's be honest). I'd vote for a 5 minute abandon and a 10 minute item-selling. Even better, I'd remove the feature all-together. Truth be told, I rarely found gold from selling an abandoned player's items that useful (since the gold is split). I'd say the extra periodic gold is enough.
