  • Exiting the game to reconnect mistaken for Abandons - FIX ASAP!

    When you disconnect from a dota game and you exit the game entirely through the power icon in the top right of the lobby screen, it asks if you would like to abandon the game. Normally a few patches ago it would just let you exit the game lobby so you could reboot it and then reconnect to the game WITHOUT ABANDONING BEING AN OPTION. I have done this twice now abandoning two (2) games that I have no intention of abandoning because of the poorly engineered way of how this is set up. That also subtracts -500 behavior score per abandon which in low behavior score is extremely difficult to get back up, and since I was successfully climbing back up, is a massive punch in gut to my positive initiative.

    Please fix this to how it used to be as I never had this issue with past patches.
