    I think that If the player abandons early game (~10 minutes or less) you can leave without getting loss, but only if you leave shortly after the game becomes safe to leave. If you play, say 10 more minutes, and leave, then you get a loss.

    I think what fiftho suggested should be implemented

    The message should be much more informative about what will happen.

    Something like:

    "[player name] has disconnected for more than 5 minutes. Leaving is no longer Abandonment."

    The following properties should take place:
    -Winner gets a win
    -Loser gets a lose
    -Leaver gets an Abandon
    -Additional leavers are not considered Abandon

    You're still encouraged to try to win, but you will probably lose. That's okay cuz the guy who screwed you over gets a negative mark that will increase his game search time.

    (For server shutdowns)
    Abandon should be counted if YOU execute the leave command, or pull your connection. If the server gets shutdown for some reason, then it is not the player's fault.

    (For bad computer hardware)
    It's your own fault if your own equipment fails. However, abandonment should be a per/month rate. If you reform your ways (or your hardware) you should be able to earn your way back to the good graces of fast queue.

    started a topic Early abandonment - safe to leave - get lost game

    Early abandonment - safe to leave - get lost game

    Since last patch i keep geting losses when i leave even though i only leave when i see the message "game is now safe to leave".
    Does this have to do anything with me probably playing for like 5-10more minutes and then leaving?

    If i posted this in wrong forum just move it if you can mods, thanks
