    However, I do see your point.

    A forfeit feature may be good, but I'm kind of 50/50 about this. Maybe in special circumstances.
    I'm for ff, because something are #&[email protected]* players who buy not right items for hero and their stats 0-11, I wouldn't play with these players.

    Sorry if my english bad.

      Yes. So what's your argument against it? Why do you think that does not matter?

      • I can definitely see why Valve would be hesitant to add a forfeit function, I have won several games where we would have forfeited much earlier on. I have also lost many games the other team would have forfeited.

        There needs to be a happy medium, I would probably move the earliest forfeit time to 25minutes and make it 5/5 entire way.

        • How about adding a forfeit into game option.Those who want to play a game with forfeit option can just join those game or else stay and play or just leave game.

          • Conditional forfeit is the closest thing we'll get to a compromise, and it's a pretty good one, actually.

            I rarely like to give up early, but sometimes victory really does seem possible. A lot of the time, we end up losing. But sometimes, even I get surprised by my team's ability to man up and soldier on (and the other team's cockiness leading directly to their defeat).

            We'll need the feature. No one is going to want to stay in lost games. This game without a forfeit function becomes an obstacle sitting between the player and their next game. You never want to hinder your players from starting a new game (to that degree, obviously you want to give them motivation to stay in the current one as well, though).

            • I think we should make it a selection feature like french mode or a whiteflag, so that the people who like to give up early can do so, while the men play on until one of the ancients explode.

              This would probably be best.

                • with mass invites the absence of forfeit will be more felt than ever, hopefully valve adds it with this patch.

                    Honestly, you seem to take everything personal.

                    • I agree that need add a forfeit system, with a leaver system(the best kind of anti-leaver is HoN system in my opinion) and the only stats that Valve need have avalaible is Elo points.

                      1>Forteit funtion: 20 minutes +, 5 minutes cooldown between votes, 5 votes required.

                      2>Anti-Leaver system:5% leaver, more than that you are banned from MM, if you leave a game, you will unable to join another MM game for 10 minutes.

                      3>Stats: Only Elo points, for people can play for win and not for farming stats, K/D, or don't want dead in a teamfight because will decrease his K/D.
                      With the mass closed beta comming, I think will be good implement these 3 points above already.

                        I would like to have that, but I doubt that this would be possible (or at least I can't imagine yet a way how this could be make possible that it does not have any relevant downsides)=

                        You wrote "how blind you are". So why did you write it then when it's not meant to be personal?
                        If you wrote factually texts, then there wouldn't be any implicit insultings, reproaches, or any other of that kind that just suit the need to harm others in it.

                        You know that forfeiting is only a legalization for leaving? If you don't beleave that, then bring arguments against it (instead of flaming me...)
                        No wonder why forfeiting works so good against leavers. Because it just allows leaving.

                        • I personally like this option, just because I've seen many games where one team gets completely slaughtered but the winning team cannot finish it, and no one wants to be the first to leave.
                          Doing a great job Valve!

                          • Sad, every game I play now has a comeback. I guess I'm doing something wrong then...

                              You do know that even if there was a Forfeit option you could very simply just say "No" right?

                              • The ONLY argument I've seen against the forfeit is: Games end too early when they could have tried to win.

                                If five people on one team decide that the game is over and they want to leave, should they be able to? Yes. Why? THEY WANT TO.
