          no, its only a temp denie to queue/ find games as long as you sandbox. If you stop doing it for ~2-3 days, your client will be back to normal.
          If you find spelling errors, you are free to take them.

              As fletcher already pointed out: close your sandboxing tool while running dota2 and you dont have an issue again ^^

                    I always have Sandboxie run in background. Infact I often run 2 Steam instances but I never have 2 Dota instances open. My queue times are still normal.

If you think you have been segregated merely for running multiple instances, then stop running multiple instances for a day or two, and then try to find a match again. You should find that you are back in the ordinary matchmaking pool with the rest of the community.

                        Running multiple instances of Dota 2 on the same computer is not supported. We certainly regret misidentifying adorable married couples playing together or fans watching multiple games as bad actors. We can try to tune our detection heuristics to better discriminate between malicious players and ordinary players. However, please don't interpret anything I've said in this post as sanctioning any particular use case for running multiple instances, or as a description of our policy that you can depend on us to follow in the future. While we will try to exercise judgement, we cannot promise any player who runs multiple instances that they will be free from negative consequence.

This would, in fact, be much worse than the solution that Valve has come up with.
                          How about people who are running multi-instances wont get put in opponent teams and wont get put in same team either unless they are in party?

                            Their solo mmr's would reflect this anyway.

                            Obviously, you can trash an mmr then use it to raise another one, but this is most effective in party matchmaking. Nothing we've talked about in this thread affects that in the slightest. This is all a bit of a grey area anyway, teaching a friend to play in a party has the same effect. You both benefit from their skill improvement. If they happen to play better in a party with you than in other parties, then your party rank will go up more than their party rank, potentially indefinitely. That's just the way the system works.

                            It's all irrelevant to the thread. The issue that were discussing, is the poorly concieved fix, for one person using two accounts at once to gain an advantage, either in mmr or cosmetic items.

                            There were two invalid assumptions, that caused problems:

                            * One machine is only used by one person at one time
                            * Two accounts at the same time on the same machine must be engaged activities negative to the community

                            It's been clearly demonstrated in this thread how these assumptions fail.

                            To avoid LPQ:

                            Don't draw attention to yourself
                            Don't use voice or chat except for 'ss'
                            Mute all at lvl 1
                            Only play in parties
                            Get alternate accounts
                            Limit your usage to one or two games per day per account
                            Don't play too well
                            Don't play on Sunday or Monday
                            Wait until the developers reset LPQ status

                            If you're getting matched with trolls or feeders:

                            You may have been placed in a hidden pool. There is no known way out of this, apart from moving to a different account.

                            • Thank you for your answer, I'm not in the use of multiple instances,how long can the normal game?

                              • I can actually find games again on my account after not using sandbox for 2 days.

                                //Well, actually i can find games but the games i found are only bots. Like i need to play 1 low prio game and i only find games with 9 people who dont buy any items, dont talk and just feed.
