  • Matchmaking Disabled for not ready'ing but no Accept prompt.

    I am extremely frustrated at the moment. This is the third time this has happened to me in the last 2 weeks.

    I am que'd up for a game, and then the que timer on bottom right of screen just disappears. No accept prompt, no noise, nothing. When this happens I have a green play button on bottom right, I move forward with life and attempt to que again, but it just acts as if it starts to que but then goes away (that being the que timer on bottom right). I then exit the dota 2 client and re launch it. When getting back to the main screen of dota2 it now has a red play button on bottom right and says I have been removed from matchmaking for reports, abandoning or failing to ready up. Says I have to wait a couple minutes. Fine, ok, so I wait, and que again, game pops after a couple minutes, i hit accept and bobs your uncle, off to the races.

    The first time this happened, that story was the extent of it.

    The second time, it happened twice so I then came back in with a 15min wait time. That was frustrating, to say the least, since I do not abandon games, attempt to always be either respectful or silent when playing. This is a game with 10 individuals in the match, and in my mind it needs to be treated as such.

    Now, we are on the third time. This is ridiculous. I am being punished with a somewhat severe time punishment, which I do like the fact that is the case, as to dissuade people from wasting others time. The problem is, I have not done anything, I in no way knowingly or even (in my opinion) accidently have been wasting peoples time. I did nothing, it is this client. I suppose it could be my PC, or the install, it just doesnt seem that is the case since it is so random, and in NO WAY happens any other time I am matchmaking.

    Please, lend me some assistance. This is extremely off putting

    Thank you
