  • Scumbag unpauses

    I'll be the first to admit I'll unpause a game at the first chance, but I always, ALWAYS ask two questions when there is a pause:

    1) What is the reason? (in case of no DC or something obvious)
    2) Do you know the person (in case of a DC)

    Result: I give about 2-3 minutes for a random with no contact in that game to reconnect. If there's a good reason given, I'll just flip to netflix or something and wait.

    So why is it when I start hitting packet loss and huge lag spikes from the crappy servers, and send 4 messages of "PAUSE PACKET LOSS" and spam F9 trying to get the game to freeze, immediately I'll get some asshole who unpauses (and generally only speaks Spanish and says "noob").

    Seriously, you guys NEED to calm your shit. There is nothing more obnoxious than someone who unpauses the game and gets a free victory because of network issues. And then to harass whoever it was who had requested pausing? Christ, there's not enough reports for this.
    Petition to remove Single Draft. All Random is more balanced than Single Draft.

    Some people are like that, it's quite unfortunate.

    When the time comes don't unpause the game and encourage others to show some manners.

    What comes around goes around.
