  • Disconnect, accidentally "Leave Game", get sad :(

    If this happened to someone else, I'd probably just say they're an idiot and it's their own fault. But it happened to me and now I'm empathetic.

    So I started a new game, picked hero, started playing. Looked like it'd be a good game. All the sudden: disconnected red text of misfortune!

    Ok, ok, not a problem. I open the console, type 'disconnect', close the console and hit the big 'Reconnect' button.

    It takes a half-second to realize that the screen hasn't changed. Uhh...what?. It takes another half-second to realize I hit 'Leave Game' instead of 'Reconnect'. FUCK.

    I'm an idiot, I know. Shit happens and it sucks. I just wish there was a confirmation dialog on that evil little button so you don't hit it by mistake when you're speeding through the UI trying to reconnect to your game.

    That or make a bloody 'reconnect' console command so you don't have to lose 30 seconds of game time waiting for the red timer.
