  • Abandon/Leave button missing.

    I've been told there is an abandon/leave button if I switch to the main menu while in-game. However, the only thing on the main window (under the "play" tab) is a loading bar with "Connected to game." displayed below it. Thus my only option of actually leaving a game is to hit the power button and exit out of Dota 2 completely.

    I'm not sure if it's a problem with my resolution (1366 x 768) or client but this bug doesn't seem to affect other people I've spoken with in chat.

    Doesn't it have a "disconnect" button below the "Connected to Game"?? I'm quite sure about that

    Or maybe, Valve may have done that intentionally because you know, abandoning/leaving a game would be of great nuisance to other players... So the only way to leave a game perhaps is to exit out of DotA 2 so that you'll be havin an inconvenience yourself.

      There is no disconnect button indeed. However, you can close the game and restart it, then you have the option to reconnect or leave the game.

        That seems rather roundabout and I know I've seen something like a leave button in some streams.

          Concede option?


          • #6
            sounds like a stupid reason to take it out

              Disconcerting has become a problem to me! Make the Reconnect time longer! And stop this dumb low priority stuff! It is really unfair!!

                It actually punishes disrupting players, which I find to be very reasonable. If you have connection problems, that sucks for you but I stand by the mechanic.
                Rules to be a good beta tester:
                • Don't bring Warcraft III limitations to Dota 2.
                • Be an example. You are not here to play ALL games for fun. You are here to test so we can have a better game.
                • Don't say that something is working as intended just because it was like that in DotA. Things have to make some actual sense.
                • Being a better player than someone doesn't mean his argument is null and void.
                • Use the search.

                  It only appears if the game is safe to leave.
