  • Lets talk about the ACCEPT button

    Am I the only one experiencing really weird behavior of this button? It simply doesnt work like 25% of the time. Sometimes I just click it, minimize the game, only to find out that I´m still in the main menu later due to the button not registering my click. I know it doesnt work if you click, move your mouse elsewhere and then unclick, but sometimes it doesnt work even if I click it as precisely as I can....

    Using windowed mode.

    Yup. It's been bugged since the big balancing patch.

    Happens in Fullscreen too.
    To avoid LPQ:

    Don't draw attention to yourself
    Don't use voice or chat except for 'ss'
    Mute all at lvl 1
    Only play in parties
    Get alternate accounts
    Limit your usage to one or two games per day per account
    Don't play too well
    Don't play on Sunday or Monday
    Wait until the developers reset LPQ status

    If you're getting matched with trolls or feeders:

    You may have been placed in a hidden pool. There is no known way out of this, apart from moving to a different account.

        I've had it happen to me once or twice, but not only from this patch. It's annoying sure, but nothing huge.

          Yep, it's one of the few reasons I accidentally declined a game.

            It happens to me almost every time. It started about 1 month ago, if I remember correctly.
            A Dota player and a LoL player are in a bar. The Dota player says: "I think Dota is way better." The LoL player couldn't deny.

              This. Now whenever I come to accept I just spam it like 5 times

                Same here. I simply click until it goes away.
                Funny that i have the opposite bug with accepting party invitation - clicking more than once causes error.

                      I've declined a number of games by mistake because of this. I can press the accept button and it just completely ignores me. I can press 5 more times and nothing happens, then it decides I declined the match. The last time it happened I spam clicked 30 times 2 seconds before it declined and it still did it.

                        Might be a feature, tbh. I mean, sometimes we are in the middle of something while the Find Match is running and we:
                        - Click accept, alt-tab
                        - Go take a piss, get a drink, finish forum post, finish flaming those irc noobs
                        - Alt-tab back to start the match

                        The second step might take longer than expected and we might be first pick in random draft. So the accept button requiring more focus, might be a good idea to get people focused earlier.

                        (Even thought everyone just idles during loading and waiting for players anyway)
                        I'm sorry Valve, but the only way I know how to coach players is with tough love.

                        We all play for fun, try hards are just WAY BETTER than you. Read this.

                          This happens to me too, and I've also noticed that I have to queue several times to get a game.

The matchmaker also will raise your Elo and try to put you in players of equivalent skill, which indirectly tries to get the win rate to 50%. However, it has never looked at your historical win rate and put you in a game where it knew that you were expected to lose.
                          Is every post on this forum about the Dunning-Kruger effect?

                            I have this happen to me almost once a day since I alt-tab quickly after hitting accept. Trouble is the accept button doesn't always work.

                            The worst part of this bug is that I waste 9 other people's time!!! I'm not so concerned about searching a few extra minutes, but this bug has gotten me so many times that I just had to come here and voice my opinion about it.

                            Thanks!
