  • Suggestion: Make leavers heroes swappable

    Just had a game where our carry got dc:ed and didnt recon wich after 5 min made us lose game since a dc:d players heroes gold is split to entire team.
    My suggestion is that you make dc:ed players heros control swappable so after 5 minutes the control can be swapped to another player.
    This makes it possible for (in my case) me playing hard support Lich to take control over the dc:ed Nightstalker and continue farming/playing with him, instead of our team losing our only farmed hero and auto lose the match.
    Thank you for taking the time reading this and taking it into consideration

      I like this idea as well. I feel it would keep people motivated to play after a dc, especially in the situation that you are playing a hero like lich or CM.

          In the very first post about dota 2 Valve stated that there will be ability to pick up other players' heroes or replace them with bots (I don't clearly remember now, but there was a thing).

                    An interesting proposal. I wonder how it would affect game recording.

                      for game records should count the hero you played the longest time in the match
