  • Prevented from matchmaking for x:xx (show in small window)

    When you were too slow to click the accept button when a MM game is ready, you are prevented from matchmaking for some minutes as a response to a minority of people abusing this and constantly denying in queue.

    When you were too slow to click the accept button when a MM game is ready, a small window pops up informing you about the fact that you were too slow to accept the game and where you are asked if you want to search a new game.

    I suggest to show a small notice of the prevention timer in there as well, since it doesn't tell you you are prevented from matchmaking in the small window and the text on the main screen is covered by the pop up. At the moment when you click on OK (search me a new game), it just plays a retarded sound and shows no other reaction.

    Also I'd like the punishment time only to come in after the 2nd fail to accept within an hour, or at least not when someone else declines and you get to accept a new game 5 times in a minute.
