  • Punishment free early leaving.

    This shit is becoming epidemic, just now the same retard leaves two games in a row, first one because he had two people both asking for mid, which is an impossible situation only resolvable by swiftly exiting the game. Second game he has an Elder Titan calling mid, prompting him to leave that game as well, after politely informing us of his reason for leaving.

    If you are the first to abandon a game you should get an abandon, no 5 minute rule and no leave before pick option, simply punish the first one who abandons the game.

      as far as i know leaving will be punished as soon as the picking phase begins. (maybe i'm wrong)

      the situation you described probably happened because you won't get into low priority if you haven't left a game for a long time. (that's what i know for sure, because i have 3 abandons but never had to play in lp-pool)

        ppl can crash after pressing the play button..happened to me but my team paused the game and i got back to find out that my frist skill point was on attributes ...and my hero was a lone druid....
        If it wasn't for LoL, there'd be no Dota2.
        If it wasn't for DotA, there'd be no LoL
        If there was no AoS, there'd be no DotA.
        It's a genre:
        Just because its different doesn't mean its wrong.
        Just because its the same, doesn't mean its wrong.

          Out of those quitters how many are quitting intentionally because they KNOW they wont get punished? And how many actually have an issue as soon as they click play?

          ......I know anything can happen, but I'm pretty sure that AT LEAST 80% of the early quitters are either trolling or dodging, and I'd dare say that its most likely 95% or so
          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

            Well as far as i know players actually leave a game after someone abandoned because the games will be safe to leave for the others and the early abandon counts as a normal abandon and the game will have no stats recorded if more will leave
            idk if its working or not but if all team leaves(only disconnecting) to bypass the abandon but that could be fixed for the server to not end the game until 1 abandon if the other 4 are just disconnected
            Valve can't punish every player even if most of the early disconnects/leaves have no valid reason , also imo the 5 min waiting rule until you are getting the abandon should have 2-3 more mins increase because in most of the pub games the players don't even bother to pause the game and let's face it if u get a BSOD and u have to log in on steam and then load the game to see that the dota 2 network is on drugs and u have to restart the steam for no reason and then the game to finally spend ~50 sec for the preload to complete and see the message that you have abandoned the game and it took like 5 mins to come back but u still got it because there was no pause
            Just a lil demo of when i disconnected then
            Also a early abandon counts as a abandon as far as i know and i was referring to the OP with the "no 5 min rule"
            If it wasn't for LoL, there'd be no Dota2.
            If it wasn't for DotA, there'd be no LoL
            If there was no AoS, there'd be no DotA.
