  • Afk Matches that takes up to 10h, Battle Points abuse?

    Hiya, i caught my friend who is strangely playing with another Team that takes up to 10H+.
    They placed their Heroes on the Lanes so they can gain Experience, and are set to auto attacking,
    so there is no real Person behind who is playing.

    My question is, if this is forbidden or a exploit?
    His Profile is full of these Matches, for example:
    Match ID: 216502705, 215813595, 216050143

    Sorry if this is already known, because i found no similiar thread for this issue.
    Please fix this abuse Valve if this is unknown!

        10h for one item and some BP? Don't see the issue.
        If you think I've closed or deleted a post unjustified, feel free to PM me and I'll explain it to you/discuss it with you further.

          ''Some BP''? They get way more than some battle points, and i guess more items too.
          Because their Heroes keep attacking creeps everytime they respawn, and gain gold and Experience.
          So they have to do nothing, while other players have to ''play'' without being afk. Isn't that unfair against other players?

            And it takes them 10 hours.

            EDIT: Or with other words: who cares?

              I care, because this is my personal Feedback to this abuse or whatever it is.
              If you are here to disrupt my Thread, then don't post!

                They switched on their pc for 10+ hours, use internet for 10+ hours, only no ppl sit behind their pc. So what? What's different? If you played 10+ hours, you'll get bp and items, too.
                Remove mute system NOW
                If someone's feelings are hurt, he can already mute the offending player with 2 clicks.
                Auto mute will be this game's downfall if it stays.

                  If they're willing to commit that long then sure, let them have their items.

                    Exploits like this are completely unacceptable. It doesn't matter how long it takes. The BP system is designed to reward you points for games you play, not games where you mindlessly run a program that keeps you from going afk, and then going afk for 10 hours. Further, you're not "committing" any time to the game. By all rights these players should have gotten abandons.

                    OP, I would suggest posting this to economy bug/exploit sections of this server.
                    Many different people want many different things. Don't be upset if the thing that you want hasn't happened yet. It doesn't mean it will never happen. An Organization has a responsibility to prioritize the desires of the majority. A single individual (You) is a minority. Do not ask yourself whether or not your desires are relevant. Ask only if your desires are that of the majorities.

                      I dont even understand why one gets more points for playing a longer game..
                      Whats the message of that? Drag the game to get more points? Dont just finish, farm the jungle after 2 barracks?

                      I do understand you should not get points for leaving a game or whatever.. But wheres the point in rewarding long matches?

                        I completely agree.

                          There's even group dedicated for abusing battlepoints, one guy said about it to me and it's possible to get 2500 points per night.

                          Should be fixed.

                          I still find it stupid however, because electricity cost most than some random item.
