  • Punishment after abandoning a finished Diretide match.

    After the destruction of Ancient in standard Dota 2 match player may disconnect from the game and the game is assumed to be finished. I disconnected and then abandoned a finished Diretide match and received 5 minutes + 50 minutes matchmaking ban. I do not think this is intended.

    The 5 minute ban is for disconnecting from that match before it truly ended or you may have been reported. The extra 50 minute ban was because Dota takes your past disconnections and abandons quite seriously. This means you probably disconnected a few times within the last month. Also while it's true some players disconnect from matches as the ancient is being attacked-this is actually not recommended and other players may report you for it.

    The more you abandon the more longer the penalty for example first time abandon is 5 minutes, then 2nd can be 15 minutes, then 3rd 30 minutes then 4th 1 hour and then low priority etc. I am going to assume you have a very low behavior score because each game you abandon can reduce behavior score by around 1000.

      Indeed, I abandoned one standard Dota 2 match recently. However, you should not be assuming because before that I had more than 100 games finished. I am quite sure I have not lost a single behavior score point for it or the commends I received compensated for it. Diretide matches are not logged in match history, it is possible that the system issued abandon to me for previous Diretide matches.
