  • Muted players getting captain

    Being the captain assumes you will use communication with your team to coordinate picks/bans and form a strategy. More then once now I have had a muted player fast pick captain and then just totally boof the drafting process due to not being able to communicate

    it would be a simple fix and i think this would have been implemented originally if the problem had been foreseeable

    It makes as much sense having them as captain as playing with them in the first place or deciding captain by a clicking contest, it's a way to directly affect the balance of a match and ignoring any mm calculations. They could look back that mm fails people more often when people can't speak the same language or just not allowed to speak at all, and if they deserve real punishment this is not it, only the guys who got him are punished for no reason.

    But we clearly don't care about that, since they are such fun to play with giving moral support. Not like you have some place like i don't know LPQ to put them there where they play can with other abusers.

    Well played!

      makes as much sense as having "the community (of griefers) decide which behavior should get punished".

        they should add a new report called "Incompetent Captain" that doesnt mute you or put you in low priority but adds a delay to you being able to select to be captain for a certain period of time

          I'm not a fan of the "click-to-pick" captain feature in general. When I'm not queued with a stack it seems like the person who wants to be the captain most and thus quick-picks captain is the person you least want to be captain. Often it's just someone who wants to ban some specific pet-peeve hero or get their own odd pick.

            WTF? Why did you create another topic with the same name in Community tab?

              I suggest a funny solution:
              -roll

              Who has the biggest dice wins the Captain and is able to give it away to anyone, anytime. Funny and useful

                i dont know where this should actually be posted so i cross posted with the hope at ANY visibility

                this is something that obviously should be fixed but isn't something you would think of until the problem arises

                  Captains mode is made for Teams not solo que. So this problem isn't so important for them. You should play captains mode only with a 5 man stack.

                    you should be able to play cpts mode outside of a 5 stack. it isnt easy reliably having 4 other friends online and wanting to play every day at the same time. or what if i only have time for 1 or 2 games it cant take 15-20 minutes to complete a stack that can be nearly half of a game's length right there

                      And then you make a complain Thread exactly like this saying you hate muted players and feeders...
                      Solo que => AR, AP, SD,Least played. Not all modes.

                        I solo queue CM just fine and frequently have enjoyable games. The concept that you should only queue CM if your in a 5 stack is like, your opinion, man. It's also nothing that anyone complains about(the fact that non 5-stacks queue CM,) but it is something that could be improved on with some consideration to how the captain is picked.
