  • 1 hour penalty for ready up

    Why do custom games immediately give a 1 hour ban if you fail to ready up...
    This is too long, I waited for over 10 minutes for a game, and the ready up would not accept.

    Now I cannot play, and it is just very frustrating..

    I do get frustrated when it takes 3 or 4 attempts to get a match, but an instant 1 hour ban is not a good solution.
    Sure make it 5 minutes if you have too, but 1 hour just means less players.

    First time got that & quite shocked.
    Would be great, if atleast players with good "decency" (not leavers) will get less harsh punishment. For those who do this constantly - this is optimal.
    Like really, got distracted by lil chat - and *blam* here's your hour.
    Welp time for wacky abillity draft i guess.

      correct me if im wrong but I believe it was to stop bots from joining

      but i agree there should be something changed here, this also happens when you create a custom lobby have your friends join and they haven't downloaded the map, instantly gives them the ban because it instant cancels the search for them to install the game.
