  • Punishment for leavers

    I didn't know where to post this so I post it here...

    At the moment nearly in every game I participate there is a leaver. And this results into 4 more leavers so the game is in fact over as soon as the first idiot left.

    So in my opinion there should be some kind of punishment for leavers like a 4 hour ban or something like this.
    Ofc this is just a Beta but I don't see the sense of a Beta when every second game finish after 10min because of a leaver....

    If im not wrong, leavers are moved into a leaver's only matchmaking pool for 24 hours if they leave 2 games in a short period of time. At the current state of beta, supposedly its impossible to get a match from this pool since there are too few players, not sure since ive never been in it.

    But yes, leavers are punished.
    Always read and follow the forum rules. If you need help from a moderator, use the report button ()
    Before posting new bugs:
    -Check the Known Bugs List and search the forum for an existing report.
    -Make sure its a bug (test in WC3 Dota, visit playdota guides and adv. mech, etc). If you're still not sure, post in Mechanics and Gameplay Bug Brainstorming instead.
    -Read the Bug Posting Guidelines on how to report a bug properly.

      There is a punishment in place. You get dropped into a low priority matchmaking queue which means it will generally take much longer to find a game, like 30minutes to 1 hour.

      Also, there's plenty of threads floating around on this topic. Just use the search function (top right of the website) next time.

        Leavers are punished enough.

        Also, we don't need new threads with the same arguments over and over again.
