    Take a look into the mirror! You think you are completely unfailable. With your limited knowledge, you think that you know more than someone who is very deep in the matter/an expert.

        it is indeed unfair. while most players can play dota they have to have their pc's on for 10 hours severely increasing their electricity bill without being able to do anything. and just to get some chests or other useless cosmetics that don't even look much different from the original look.

        poor idiots!

          and you earn Battle Points from Team Matchmaking.
          i still don't understand why it bothers you so much that 10 people who mutually agreed with each other to was 10 hours of their lives, have been spending 10 hours to get battle points.


          this doesn't hurt you in ANY way, why would you care?
          5 years since Arabic language bug reported. I randomly open icefrog's weaboo to check for meracles. Suddenly, short tweet appears Icefrog is active. Eyes fill with tears as i quickly open dev.dota2.com and i start to cri when i see he is replying to shitposts again. My clenching anus is twitching in pure joy as i spam the different boards with threads about the 5 year old bug. "weew" i wisper to myself, My heart is jumping outta my chest, but Im calm because s t i a n n o g e b t h g i r l a.

            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.
            Couldn't have said it better.

            Since nobody ever does this while they aren't at home, and nobody has multiple computers.

              It is a big exploit because what they do it seems is for example they have 1945/1000 exp and what they do is leave the game before they get 1 exp (that would reset the extra exp) then they just rinse and repeat essentially getting a guaranteed item every game after like 30 seconds

              This is just my theory because if you look at there games after those 10 hour games they join a game and then all dc at the same time before it starts for many games....

                    I don't understand why OP making this a big issue, I mean in team match making both teams have a mutual understanding and are willing to play afk for 10H for some items and BP, it doesn't affect anyone does it? Don't get me wrong, what they are doing is wrong and will be frowned upon and will probably hurt Valve's precious hat market (I don't think new valve items and the ones currently on sale are drop-able but correct me if i am wrong) , but then again who cares? Are you jealous that they are getting free items and lots of BP while an honest player like yourself doesn't?
                    I like to do stupid stuff even when i know it's stupid.

                      Most gamers and PC buffs have their PCs running 24/7, without shutting them down. It's more practical that way, and it's certainly better
                      for your PC. They only reset or shut them down when they need to clean them, upgrade hardware, update OS, etc. Usually, they download/upload stuff
                      while they sleep, eat, work, watch TV, etc. They don't plan to do anything anyway, so they don't care if they run Dota 2 for 10+ hours.
                      Also, they're not increasing their electricity bill "severely", it's increasing incrementally (as usual) because your PC's electricity consumption does not
                      increase "severely" for every consecutive hour while running Dota 2 on your PC, that should be obvious. PC is not a huge electricity consumer anyway.
                      Furthermore, these people get BP and items (that are not useless, they cost real money to buy) for not playing the game, as opposed to others.
                      How the hell is that fair? While others have to actually put in 10 hours of sitting in a chair, thinking, reacting, using their energy on the game,
                      these people are free to use that energy and time for something else, while still getting the same reward for doing NOTHING. Get real, pal.

                      They don't waste 10 hours of their lives, they simply go to sleep...or go to work...or have dinner and go watch a movie in the cinema, etc.
                      Why is this so hard to understand? They receive items for NOT playing the game, the game is on auto-pilot, so to speak.
                      Does a pilot fly an airplane for 10 hours if it's on auto-pilot for 10 hours? Of course NOT. That's why the auto-pilot was invented in the first place.

                      It hurts me when some idiot joins my game and wastes my time by leaving so he could receive items from his afk-ing.
                      It is unfair to other members of Dota 2 community in multiple ways, from receiving BP and items to leveling up without
                      actually having the skill to match it. And we don't know how matchmaking exactly works and whether levels have any part in it.
                      As far as items are concerned, to my knowledge only immortal, ancient, promo chest items and maybe newly released sets
                      are not in the drop system, everything else is.

                      P.S. Someone said he can get the same amount of BP and items from playing 5 games instead, and that is completely false.
                      Not to mention time you have to spend searching for games, possibly having someone disconnect then searching again, etc.

                        I perfectly agree with this method and I support it. Why? Because all those tards doing this are out of the pool matchmaking while I play. Let them stay 10h or 24/24h afk for 1 million points. I play for fun, for exciting matches, not for stupid cosmetic hats.

                          That is a very childish way of looking at this.
