  • Pause and Abandonment Timer

    If someone dcs, and the game is paused the abandonment timer should tick for them and NOT be paused and be paused ONLY if they've clicked on reconnect (this excludes dota loading time) with a message saying they are RECONNECTING

    else this happens

    pause for 5 mins they're still not there
    with mass unpauses/pauses inbetween +2 minutes
    unpause for another 5 minutes
    they get abandon then people can leave
    so 10+ minutes are wasted instead of just 5

    so the time wasted can be reduced by half.

    if they cant get back within 5 minutes, chances are they're playing on a unstable setup in the first place.
    FIX MM.

      So you want to punish ALL players that cant afford a good internet connection/PC? What about server crashes?
      If you find spelling errors, you are free to take them.

                    I think this is okay. Perhaps raise time from 5 to 6 but let it go down while pause...
                    Yesterday we waited 6 mins for 2 russians (no joke) who both dc at the same time. after 6 mins we moved on and after 6mins (so 12mins in total) they reconnected both... 12 mins?? As today most games take 35mins that is almost an third of playtime.

                    And yes they sure said: Thanks for w8 wtf no we loose noobs omfg!! Dicks syka blyke or what ever...

                    Who the fuck need 12 mins to reconnect...
                    A slow pc needs perhaps 3 that's okay. So 6mins is IMO good becouse you have a puffer time. But 12mins is just funny. IF you need so long there is something not write with your PC/Connection/Layer 2/3(or 8) or what ever than you are not to blame.

                    Perhaps also make it so that if you try to reconnect but you get no Connection to Dota Network you wont get a loose. (This happend to a friend of mine: Dc no network but he was online in steam teamspeak etc)
