  • It's possible to stay afk in game for more than 5 minutes without picking any hero!

    So I just queued into a ranked game (AP), and one player in my team didn't pick a hero for the first 8 minutes, after that he picked Nature's Prophet and tried farming bottom, died few times, went afk for few minutes in game and fed a little bit the enemies, and then when we asked people report him, he just asked: "for what?"

    So the game ended up with stats recorded, no abandonment for Nature's Prophet and our Nature's Prophet was afk for almost half of the game
    (after ~8 minutes he hasn't even picked a hero) and we lost.

    So the thing is, it is shouldn't be allowed to stay afk more than 5 minutes right? so why is it allowed to not pick a hero for more than 5 minutes after the game started and then when you pick one, doesn't matter after how much time you passed since the start of the game you don't get punished at all?

    In my opinion it should be fixed by Valve as soon as possible..

    What are you guys thinking about this?
