  • Everyone leaving after one player gets an abandon

    Ohai,

    so I've just played a match. Its id is 253923480.

    I had an issue with connection so it threw me out of game. I've been trying to connect there for some time, they also were pausing for some time. However, they unpaused and I didn't manage to come back before I got an abandon. It's okay, shift happens.

    Even though I got an abandon, I thought it would be nice to play the game, so when I finally managed to connect here, I was under impression. But what I see? Four people of enemy team already left the match. Yeah, my team won the game, but that wasn't a nice gameplay I expected. Seriously, I do wonder if the text "the game is safe to leave" should be showed if people decide to disconnect instead of playing the match.

    It isn't the first time I experience such situation. Once when I disconnected because I had to afk and came back later, I saw only my two mates remaining in the game, with everyone else on our team disconnecting and some on enemy team.

    I don't know how to solve this issue but it would be nice to tell people that one disconnect doesn't have to end the game...

      So... you got an abandon and wonder why people left?

      are you serious or just kidding.

      why the fuck would you go afk in the middle of a game?

      and if someone abandons, that means the game was 4v5 for at least 5 minutes. not to mention you have gotten zero farm and zero exp in that time. you are now underleveled, underfarmed, and are now fighting a 5man team that has either farmed your heroes or farmed creeps and have a huge advantage.

      how is this not common sense?

        People like OP should get banned. LPQ is too nice of a punishment for those people.

          The match I've just played - I had connection issue at the beginning, not in the middle... As about the older match I mentioned, I had to afk because of my family. You know, real life random events...

          And notice that I am not talking only about the situations where you get an abandon. I am talking about the situation when anyone disconnects

              When I play, if someone abandons, I leave.

              Why? Cuz I dont want to waste another 15-20 minutes for a game that doesnt count.

              When you queue for a game, you are committing 20-45 minutes to play. If you dont think you can finish, dont start. As for lag, it happens, but you cant blame people for leaving...

                And because of your "issue" with your family, you ruined a game for 9 other people. GJ

                  Yep, well, I do always consider how much time I can have. I never play when I know I won't be able to play at least for one hour. But sometimes I have to reply to the ping on the door for example... And I can't predict it... But thank you for your input That's what I have been expecting - a nice discussion

                    Lulz. Did I mention that in this situation afk lasted like 2 minutes and this time I didn't even get an abandon because I managed to come back quickly? Of course, not. And of course, you didn't even bother to ask about details of my post and decided to express your opinion in this way instead. GJ.

                      You obviously did something to piss off your team so deal with it.

                            One disconnect does ruin the game though to some people. If you're AFK for whatever reason, and the game is still going on, it's a huge disadvantage to your team. Many players (not all), would rather start a fresh new game then play against stacked odds. You can't fault people for leaving, especially if you're the reason they're leaving.

                            I do agree with you though, if we have a DC, I certainly don't mind playing on, I've actually won some games 4v5 before too, those games were extremely satisfying.
