  • "Reconnect" should not be so close to "Leave Game"

    Was playing a match today where I had to leave and return to dota to fix a lag issue.

    I noticed that the "Reconnect" button is right on top of "Leave Game", and they're both grey.

    It's really easy to misclick and leave the game by accident, putting you into the abandonment pool and ruining an entire day for you.

    I suggest putting these buttons on different parts of the screen, with Leave Game having a red color similar to Decline, and Reconnect with a green color.

    Thanks.

    This is ridiculous. Its not easy to misclick at all - just make sure your eyes are open when you do it - stop complaining about the dumbest things.

      No, it's quite the clear design flaw. If your mouse jitters a bit you'll end up pressing leave game.

        If this were the case, then there wouldn't be a sell option for 10 seconds in Dota 2. This corrects misclicks. Stop being negative and start leaving polite feedback. I see what he is talking about, but haven't had trouble since I haven't had to reconnect yet.

          There's no need to defend a stupid OP. Users need to accept a little responsibility. The buyback for items is understandable as they all have new icons from dota1/hon/lol and the shop layout is different. We do not need big red/green letters and warnings that say , "are you absolutely sure you want to leave the game when you clicked 'leave game'?". As I said, it's stupid.

            No. It happened to me and I've seen it happen to other players many times. the leave game is TOO close to the reconnect button, period. I don't know what you're trying to defend, there's PLENTY of space to separate the buttons, quit posting useless crap.

              Basic design flaw (along with the "leave match you currently spectate" button which if you press twice you will manage to close the game (because you will get to press the Exit button from main menu). To be fixed ASAP (which it's also esay to do - just changing the position of 2 buttons)

                There should be a modal dialogue for leaving/abandoning a game, problem solved.

                  yes you want to leave the game asap without wasting 3s of your life while you are against a concede/ff option i guess.

                    This is a good observation/suggestion. Even if only a few people misclick, it's still a few too many

                      +1, needs slight adjustment.

                          Agreed with OP. Everytime i DC and i want to reconnect im stressed out and want to click as fast as possible. and the leave game button is dangerously close to the reconnect button.

                          A dialogue thingy saying "Are you sure you want to leave the game? you will be put in low priority Matchmaking if you do" would problaby be nice as well. since it not only would help with missclicking, but tell new people what actually happens when you leave. There has been a few "Why does matchmaking take 10 min for me" threads due to people not knowing what low prio is.

                            Leave Game is a serious act and should have a confirmation dialog.

                              The solution is simple, make the buttons both the same size, place one to the left, the other to the right, and leave a sizable gap between them.

                              I don't get why theringisMINE is getting all twisted over the subject. It's a simple gripe about a UI issue that could be addressed without even having any negative affect on the game whatsoever. Honestly, I'd say just ignore theringisMINE, he's obviously a troll that just wants to cause rage on the forums.

                              Agreed, and it should also pop-up a warning telling you the consequences of leaving multiple games. Who knows, maybe it'll deter some more people from leaving, especially if the penalties for leaving increase.
