  • Increase in Disconnects / Abandons

    Im not sure if its just me but over the last few days nearly every single game I play has at least 1 that disconnects forever and then abandons.

    Is it cause of the rise in new player or what? any one else experiencing this?

    Well ofc when low priroty is broken and they can leave it in 15 minutes (you need around 5 min per game) of playing co-op in 5 man party,so people don't care anymore about low priority...
    Thank you IceFrog, Valve and Dota 2 team for everything you doing for Dota 2 community.

      1) tons and tons of people are slowly realizing that some games just arent worth playing out.

      2) after slowly removing the many ways people can dodge before the game starts in order to avoid a game worthy of abandoning, the end result is that these people who would try to avoid games that they find abandon-worthy in the first place end up being forced to play games that they end up abandoning anyway.

      3) changes to the way the abandon system works in regards to mmr rewards means there is zero incentive for a leaver or anyone on his/her team to continue a match after any of them have received an abandon
