    Player intentionally ruining games doesn't mean you have to break the game and make the non-ruiners suffers too (and the gameruiners will just find new ways to ruin games instead)
    So limit it to 1 courier per player. The game ruiner will only have 1 courier to kill.

    We were beating an opposing team, 22/3 and 5 mins later 4 of the 5 enemy heroes sold all their items and bought as many couriers as they could, which was ~60 total. They fed us so much gold, I went from 1.4K gold to 5.6 in a matter of minuets. It was funny.

    Based on this anecdote, I'm almost tempted to say this is now the unofficial "Forfeit" option...

    Your opponent stalling because they're still missing 2 more Divine Rapier on each of their heroes? Send them a bunch of couriers! Now they can shut up about not having farmed enough gold and push!
    Every time someone make a false report.
    Making people's losses feel worse with just my name (don't ask me how it work, I certainly don't)

    People who cry MM isn't fair: Maybe you're not as great as you make yourself to be.
    People who wants surrender: It exists, but I'm not teaching you how to do it.

    Revert courier changes. It was a stupid idea to remove invulnerability from courier.

    Could limit the global bounty instead. Max 150 gold when a courier dies, -50 per courier death, +50 per minute. Something simple like that would prevent abuse and not really effect normal games since it's rare to see teams with more than 2 legitimate couriers and even rarer to see 2 legitimate courier deaths within a minute.
