  • Player card farming in compendium matches

    I'm pretty sure this issue is widely known but couldn't find it posted anywhere. Basically when all 5 players on a particular team leave simultaneously, none of them get an abandon and everyone in the game (including the players who left) get cards.

    As a result over the last day or so many of the compendium matches I queue for result in:

    1. One team comprising of a 5-stack that immediately leaves as the game starts, or
    2. Players discussing before the game and one side deciding to leave

    In some games where I decided not to leave (despite 4 other players on my team leaving) those 4 players simply waited for 4 minutes, and rejoined the game after so that they wouldn't get an abandon. Needless to say that was even worse because we then ended up losing badly and it wasn't a 'no-stats' game.

    Don't get me wrong I like the idea of the compendium player cards but in the current implementation it seems like it is just best to queue and leave 80-odd times to complete the collection.

    Hope this is somehow rectified.

      I second this thread. I can't play a Compendium Matchmaking without everyone disconnecting just to farm cards.

              Kind of undermines the value of these cards and the whole idea of collecting.
