  • What is the point of decline button?

    Hi,
    Annoyed by too much "A player declined the match.." message too much. Thought about why that button is there..
    Consider the scenario:
    1. I want to play a game through matchmaking.
    2. I select my regions, gametypes, and click "Find match".
    3. At any point during the search , I have the option to "Cancel Search" , due to whatever reason- sm friend came online/ call/ etc till the match hasnt been found.
    4. The whole process of accepting the game after a game and server has been found take what - "30 secs - 1 min" after which you are automatically dropped If you are afk...(again resulting in "a player has declined....." )
    5. So why is there a Accept and Cancel button at all??? If i want to cancel, i can cancel while a game is being searched...., If i dont want to cancel search, means i dont want to decline a match either (As the ui gives no info at the moment who am i matched up against util i actually press the accept button and game goes live).
    6. Removing both the buttons would also solve the problem of people mis-clicking the decline button.

        Agreed, it is completely useless. If you've been looking for a game for a good 2 to 3 minutes already chances are, you're gonna press accept. Everyone who doesn't is just /quote/ trolling /unquote/ or laughing his ass off with a bunch of friends when he declines as the last one, getting kicks for that for some weird reason.

        The cancel search, as mentioned, is all you need.

          Yes it is totally unneeded.

          Both accept and decline button are useless. You either want to find a match or you do not. And you can cancel the search anytime before a game is found.

          You can't even see who you are matched with/against. Why do you need to decline when a game is found?

            Well... let's look at it in a positive way. Instead of waiting for the timer for accepting to run out they can still "cancel the search." So, in the end, it's faster for you.

              guys pls think... premades... tada... it's a f*ing check of who is rdy. This option is great. And if you miss that huge button, that pops into your face, then i wonder how you aim at sth during a game.

                yes, instead of 'a player declined the match', i would like to be brought into a game and subsequently, into character selection, where i will happily play a 4v5 for the entire duration since you still don't get abandonment (as far as i know) in character select

                and even if you don't get abandon in hero select anymore, it would still be ten times more annoying to go into a game, wait for someone to abandon and then start the whole process over.

                  I usually press find match and then I may sonder if I will have to leave house or PC for some reason. If I see I will have too I stop searching, and when it has already find I decline ( happened once ))

                    I think that is needed, if you have any problems during the search (maybe you are away and forget about search) you won't cause a free loss for your team.

                      You can evacuate after you finish your dota game!

                        You know what i have a great ideea: under the accept/decline messaje there should be a checkbox that should read - "auto accept match when found".
                        Because i'm so pissed that i can't have a smoke while finding a match.

                          Decline button is unnecessary but Accept button is needed. Imagine someone queue than goes afk, if the system is auto-accept, there will be a lot of matches with afk people at the start of the game

                            Solutions to this:
                            1. Still play the loud ass sound when match is ready so that afk ppl can hear and come back.
                            2. There are afk f***ktards in matches anyhow who go afk after playing for a while and ruin game. There should be a stricter ban on such people , not just go into low priority to discourage abandonment, maybe a full day ban from playing games.
                            3. Should be a system - which detects that no inputs from player are coming for a definite time = afk = ban.
                            4. And still , When you click search,when you are here to play, y go away at all (for whatever reason- click cancel search n go.)

                              +1 for this.
                              Most of the time I start searching for match and then go to the toilet.
                              In (un-)lucky times a match is found within 30 seconds and I cannot click accept
