    I dont think afks need punishment because nobody leaves a ranked match on purpose. Other than that its quite a negligible thing.

    I want to live in the same world as you do.
    I have had people rage quit because we lost the first point.
    Battle doesn't need a purpose; the battle is its own purpose. You don't ask why a plague spreads or a field burns. Don't ask why I fight.

    I've had games where someone was a bot from the very start of the match, and never returned. Whether they left on purpose or not, it seems pretty intentional (and damaging either way) to just never reconnect.

If they win, they receive the normal amount of TP.
    Jea, I will add a warning in the thread description.

If our team does poorly, the smurf goes afk at the first sign of defeat so we don't lose as much TP. After a few matches, my friend plays on his main and I use a smurf account, and we repeat the same system.

    This is the main reason I hesitate to support any proposals like this regarding afk teammates. I'm all for creating a huge deserter penalty, or even a large TP penalty, to anyone found to be afking in ranked matches. But I don't trust the thought of softening the loss for teammates of the deserter, even though I am aware of how much it sucks to realize you're trying to play with a bit on your team
    This sounds like a whole load of abuse in my eyes. Well, for going AFK multiple times in comp, this is why it should be investigated when someone does this multiple times, but yes: there is no solution to this, except for investigation.

    You should be able to report someone for going AFK in comp, then if someone was in a party with the AFK, suspicion would be raised. Since replays are available in comp, people can go back and look at these matches, possibly even hire volunteers to do so (BTW Hi-Rez, I would do that), to check if it looked like it was a loss. This investigation would be performed, if an AFK, was in a party and left the game every time there was a sign of defeat, and did not leave when they were winning. Upon performing this action, both the members of the party would be banned, resulting in the effort being a waste, since the main account was the one which wanted the TP.

    A type of quick play, to replace bots? It could work in casual, but in comp, not really.

    Sometimes it is a true disconnect, so that would not work. I have added in a reply to this counter, which I will add to the original thread.

    That is why I said it is not often, bot sometimes a kid who still lives at home needs to go eat dinner, and can't keep on playing. This would have to be punished so people make sure when they eat so they don't have to leave a game when they have to eat.

    I think AFK's should get something in their screen saying:

    Are you there?
    Yes

    They have 20 seconds to answer, selecting Yes will give you this Question:

    Are you going to play?
    Yes/No

    Again, 20 seconds to select. Selecting No will kick you and shut down the game with this message:
    PLAYER LEFT: SERVER SHUTTING DOWN.

    Selecting Yes will give you 30 seconds to move out of spawn.

    Why I should be penalized because HiRez servers are shitty? Many times my BF gets disconnected, while I am still on line, or vice versa. It's a HiRez problem, I already loose points for LOOSING the game 4vs5, on top of that, I have to earn a penalty? Are you serious?

    Sometime you are able to re-connect but chat doesn't work. I know because some friends wrote me on STEAM saying "I am here, but I can't type in chat...".
    I've finally found it!
