  • Picking captain based on highest MMR ruined Captains Mode

    Here are several reasons to stop picking captain based on MMR:

    1. 3 of my last 8 ranked Captain's Mode games have been entirely selected randomly because the captain is now automatically selected and the captain doesn't realize it and leaves to go wash his hair for 15 minutes. Thank god the last one had the decency to abandon after the entire draft was randomed.

    2. People click "ready" and then expect that they have 10 minutes to go do something else.

    3. Most of the people automatically picked as captain have no desire to be captain and don't know what they're doing. Just because their MMR is higher doesn't make them a better drafter or even indicate that they WANT to be the drafter.

    You need to either get rid of this or else disqualify the match instead of picking random heroes and consider the captain as abandoned.
    Remove MMR-based captain picking completely
    Opt-in to be chosen automatically based on MMR
    If captain is AFK for first ban then consider match abandoned
    Dear God, please have Steam fix this!
