I am unintentionally testing the low priority queue. 2 things need fixing!

  • I am unintentionally testing the low priority queue. 2 things need fixing!

    Now before i say the 2 things that need fixing here is why i am in the low priority queue. I don't troll nor do i get reported. My computer Is blue screening like once a day and i cant fix it, i just have to get a new computer and i was just laid off from my job. so before i get a new pc i need to find a job and save up a bit.

    It takes my pc longer then 5 mins to blue screen, memory dump, reboot, start steam, start dota 2, and reconnect(it takes about 6-7) I always come back in to the game and fight till the end but no one pauses it so after 5 mins it says i abandoned the game. this has happened about 15-20 times out of 150 games.

    Anyways

    #1 once you pick a character and start up the game it says "you are in low priority queue you will not get points or items blah blah" But it spams it like 10 times and fills up the screen. I don't know if this is working as intended or a bug.

    #2 my low priority que times are longer then 24 hours now. I have been in this queue to often, but it is such a fun game I cant just stop playing it for a few months while i wait to get a new computer. Back to the problem. When i click play it tells me how much time i have left until i am out of low Priority queue. But this time never says more then 1 day when in fact I am in it for more. I click play it tells me i have 1 day in low priority so i go to bed and when i wake up 8 hours later it still says 1 day. After a while it will start counting down from 24 hours. Again i do not know if this is a bug or not.

    PS. i am not sure if i posted this in the right area or not.

    Haven't seen it, but this is good info for Valve so they can try and fix it for those low priority people.

          I know what you mean, I was in LP once cause of familiar reason.

          To 1) I think the multipost of the message is intended so that nobody has the chance to miss the facts. You could discuss about the design though...

          To 2) I read about people having the same issue with the displayed time but also that your LP time expands if you leave or get a counted report while you're in LP. May that happend to you through your instable system?

            No that would not have happened to me because when im in LP i don't play the game i just wait for it to end. So I don't get leaves while in LP because i don't play.

              Just a tip for you: at hte start of the game, tell your team mates about you problem, so they will try to pause for you. And the spam have occured to me back in months, but now stoped. Looks like they only happen because everyone receivied the mensage of each other or something like that.
