  • 5 player disconnect and no stats recorded, possible bug abuse?

    Game id and the time disconnects happened: dota2://matchid=777912118&matchtime=1176

    We were dominating a ranked game and 5 players got sudden dc and after the reconnect it says game is safe to leave and no stats will be recorded
    because of poor network conditions. The players were only disconnected for maximum of 10 seconds.
    When I watched the replay I noticed from embers player perspective that he dies and ignores 2 players from his team and straight afterwards 5 players
    dc and he leaves instantly without even taking time to wonder what happened. Possibly a bug abuse but not 100% sure about it.

    The server simply had a hickup. The same happened to me yesterday in a rather even game, but luckily I did not get the message (meaning, 7 people dced but all came back).
    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.

      I think people have found out how to abuse this feature though. Too many times recently, people start dropping like flies from the game when the game is going badly for them, and then the green text is there saying bad network conditions (it doesn't even show in the actual match). It's a freebie abandon for them and the winners don't get their win.

      This is like the equivalent of standbying your router or something which plagued many games for years until devs wised up and detected it. However, I thought up til now that Dota servers were immune to these kind of shennanigans.
