    If waiting 1 or 2 or 3 or even 5 minutes doesn't matter AT ALL, then not waiting 1 or 2 or 3 or even 5 minutes doesn't matter AT ALL either.
    Never go full retard..... Obviously being afk 5 minutes in a game matters alot more than having it paused 5 minutes.

    Seriously though, why are all the "I unpause erry time" people coming up with all these bullsh!t reasons as to why they unpause, trying to rationalise their behavoir? If you are man enough to unpause, atleast also be man enough to state that you simply are a d!ck doing it because you want to get some easy rating.

      Paused or not, after 5 minutes of inactivity an abandon will occur. So technically the outcome is the same.

      Your individual perception of someone who unpauses the game is just that, your individual perception. I could replace "unpause" with "pause" in your comment above and then argue that is how I feel when someone has the audacity to pause on 9 other people who simply want to just play the game.

      Easy rating? I unpause on my teammates who pause, I could care less if that leads to a loss.

        Any pause in the first 15 minutes = automatic unpause

        If someone dcs or asks for a reconnect generally I give them a few minutes, unless while waiting I check their steam and there not playing on the right region, can't unpause fast enough

          Assumptions make an ass out of you and...




          I disagree completely, for public matchmaking there should no pausing at all. I don't play the game to sit paused. I don't care if it is someone on my team who dc's or goes afk. If my team loses because someone is afk/dc'd, I move on with my life and hope the next game it does not occur again.
          SN1 you are the only one defending unpausing, from all the pages its just you and few new accounts that are probably you as well. Just admit that you are a lifeless noob who just wants to get an easy win and easy battle points, so instead of waiting 2 freaking minutes you'd rather ruin the whole game. Even if the game has been played for 40 minutes and one dc's you'd rather ruin the game and not wait, because you are lifeless noob and want to get a free win.

            Actually, I am defending removing pausing from public matchmaking. But judging by the fact you simply attack me because I disagree with you, it is no surprise your reading comprehension is non-existent
