  • Spectating taking ages to load and get banned from mm as a result

    Ok guys I am mad.

    So ever since Reborn got implemented basically my entire client has been running like shit. I can deal with lag/frezzes/disconnections and such, but It's been four times in like 15 days I've gotten banned from MM for 24 hours because I join a game to spectate and search for a match at the same time. Then I find a game but the loading into the game I was going to spectate takes literally over a minute sometimes. Four entire days I've been banned from playing RMM because of this new reborn garbage.

    So WTF am I supposed to do?. loading screens seem to take from 10 seconds up to over a minute sometimes, Do I actually need to close every tab and program in my PC to make sure I am not stressing my computer and maximizing my chances of NOT getting banned again? (by this I mean I closing the ONLY program I usualy have open, which is firefox or opera, and THAT'S IT, I am 100% I am not stressing my computer. This problem is not on my end).

    Is this just me or is anyone else pissed about this?

    Help me and sorry for bad englondo

    Its happened to me too

    I always click to watch a game right after I search so that all the game stuff gets loaded in to memory and it takes less time to load when find my game
    Otherwise if I just click search, when I get modes like RD and I'm the first to pick I dont have time to pick my hero because the game freezes for the first 10-20 seconds while it finishes loading stuff.
    Make a NON automated report system.
    I would rather wait 10 minutes for a balanced, fun and exciting match that will last 1+ hours. Than wait 10 seconds for a poorly balanced crapmatch that will end in 30- minutes
    Valve, How I'm I supposed to respect certain boundaries to prevent a mute if I dont know them because they are different for each and every person on each and every game I play?
    The only type of player that dislikes having his stats public are the players that suck and cheaters
