    I think 5 minutes issue should be more tolerate, especially to a "Party". I meant, if a player from a party (consists of at least 3 players) got disconnected, the time waiting for him to return should be lengthened.

    Furthermore, there should be a voting system (like how RGC works). Being more democratic doesn't hurt anyway. So in case if a player got disconnected, the others (in the same team) through judging can decide that player is "abandoning" or not. Voting should start after 5 minutes.

    This is retarded, I have tried not to be too offensive: If you abandon a game, you will get a loss, even if you come back, finish the game, and win. This logic is impossible to comprehend. I would rather not having the reconnect issue than bearing with this "logic"

    Current Abandon Logic

    If you are disconnected for more than 5 minutes cumulative you will get an Abandon. This includes multiple instances, like 3 times for 2 minutes each.]

    The time should be lowered to 3 min( 5 min is too much) and when the timer reach to 3:00 , a vote kick interface will start , so his teammates can know if he is really afk or he is avoiding afk detecton with 1 imperceptible click every 5 min. In the second case, the team could report the afk abuser.

    Current Win/Loss Logic

    If you abandon a game, you will get a loss, even if you come back, finish the game, and win.

    If there is a server crash (not just your system crashing) it won't count as a win or loss for anyone.

    If there is an abandon at the beginning of the game then the game will not count as a Win or Loss for either team. Still clarifying when the exact cutoff is.[/QUOTE]

    If you disconnect more than 5 min, you will get 1 loss and 1 abandoned and the server should exclude you from that game(making impossible reconnect in that same game)

    No idea what RGC is, but it would be nice to have an option of extending the abandonment time, particularly if the clock still runs while the game is paused.

    In several games I've played a guy has D/Ced only to return about 10 seconds after the abandonment clock has run out.

    Ranked Gaming Client AFAIK...

    I just had experienced that, however I still continued the game 'cuz I was playing with my friends. That match turned out to be our team's amazing table-turning, despite our noob Traxex who only got a BoS, a Glove of Haste at min 25 and also feeded a Dominating to enemy Batrider in the first 8 minutes. He also pooled my Perservence (lol).

    Beside, it should judge how long the player got disconnected over total time the player had played.

    I totally agree with this. A voting system will not hurt and I can't think of any way it can be abused. I created a thread for this suggestion: http://dev.dota2.com/showthread.php?t=23611

    Nope, got an abandon during the fix for server instability a few days ago.

    If it's only preventing reconnecting the system still stuffs you with an abandon. Far as I've seen it only disallows games where the match servers went down.

    ----------------

    Anyways, seeing as how pausing pauses the abandon timer I'd like to be given some actual freaking information about WHY they disconnected. If some idiot running a WC3 server can get some basic info about why someone disconnected, I'd at least like a game built with this stuff in mind in the first place to give some basic info on why the guy left so I can judge whether I pause to give him time or not.

    Right now, the system could easily tell people:

    Disconnected.
    Timeout.
    Lost Connection.

    And would be nice if it could tell them:
    Crashed.

    Nobody deserves an abandon if the game crashed and they were 10 seconds late rejoining and I'd be more than happy to pause for extended periods if I knew WHY they left.

    One more thing, the timer keeps counting down while they're reconnecting back into the match. Changing it so the timer stops before they're fully in would be a boon for people sporting older CPUs (judging by the load times I've seen, that's a good 25% of participants).

    Connection timeout thingy that a lot of people complain about is not a issue with their server, it is with you making a connection TO them. It's not like the server is preventing you from reconnecting. Well, it is. But not because it wants to.

    In that case you cannot even try to reconnect as there is no game to come back to.

    I have a quote from zoid to back up on this:

    It wasn't a timeout. The "reconnect" button was literally gone and find match did nothing. Ten minutes after it started it finally allowed reconnects (many people in chat were experiencing the issue too, so it wasn't an isolated issue with the hotfix).

    So either they did something different for that patch or the system isn't working as it should.

    Current Abandon Logic
    I like it. The only problem now is that plenty of people are idling at the fountain and are moving their hero every minute, so the system won't count them as leavers. Something needs to be done for that.

    Current Win/Loss Logic
    People who leave after this point will not automatically get a loss like the first leaver but will get a win or a loss based on the outcome of the game.
    Horrible! People who are leaving at that point shouldn't get a loss from the game, even if they lose. They doesn't deserve it at all. The winners however may get a win, because it's not as punishing, but it's not that necessary.


    If there is a leaver before any action has occurred then wins/losses are not recorded. The exception to this is if the team with the leaver manages to win 4v5 then the game will still count (this doesn't happen very often and when it does those guys deserve the win).
    Oh wow, that's bad. First of all, the system should tell you more what's going on. It's impossible to tell what counts as a loss or not for a new player. More messages please in the chat!

    Secondly. it shouldn't matter how the teams are. 4vs5, 3vs1, etc etc. If someone leaves before it starts, then no one deserves a win/loss. Everyone should just be able to leave safely and search for a new game.

    Here's a link with my suggestion (see my replies):
    http://dev.dota2.com/showthread.php?...l=1#post134403

    What I was talking about:

    (About adding an "abandon" or not...)
    There might be a sollution! Something like a hidden process (like duplicating the "svchost" processes' name, since there are a lot of them and if you kill the wrong one, you get your pc shut down ) which comunicates with steam and determines if the computer still has access to internet (for those who attempt to leave) or if the pc has been shut down/crashed (by creating some hidden log which detects what happened?)

    What do you think???

    ......
    ......
    ......sometimes (quite a few), unexpected (and totally unpredictable) events tend to happen.
    About ripping the modem: "it" should work, since I suggested having the process record what's happening with the pc in the meantime while reporting what happened when connection is re-made. Still, there is the problem in the event of a power failure: how do you know if someone had his pc powered off (due to failure) or if he manually turned off the computer, although I don't know if it's possible to detect the press of the "power off" or the "restart" buttons. Let's see what turns up...
