Included in update 54480 is an initial measure aimed at discouraging queue dodging. Players who Alt+F4 out of queues will receive progressive timeouts and their ability to rejoin the queue will be affected depending on the frequency with which they disconnect to work around the matchmaking system.

Well , i m ussually using the alt+ f4 thinghy . I m at 1800 elo , there are 2 guys who always ban arabia . They literally dodge evey single map besides islands/ megarandom and arena . So i m alt+f4 ing too , cuz i wanna have fun with the game , i don t want to be forced to play a map i don t like . Why should i get banned ? cuz i m trying to have fun with the game ? Really ? There should be an option for every player to ban how many maps he wants . if u want to play only arena , u ll have to wait more in the queue , but u won t get dodged . same for me , instead of waiting 4 mins as ussuually , i ll have to wait 5 mins , but i ll only get arabia . This is the best way to solve the problem imo . Also , if a map gets queues longer than 10 mins , that map shouldn t be in the map pool .
Here is my first impression, i got 3 strikes in a row.
I got a team where 2 guys dropped just starting, so i got punished cause of them, yeas cause i resigned lol, second game one guy wasn’t playing so we resigned, so second strike 10 mins cause of strangers and lastly i dodge the same guys cause i got them on the MM again so my reward was 3 strike +20 mins punishment, logged off to switch nick but i am feeling this is going to be more about the same, oh and i forgot to add once you get the stupid window notification the game freezes so you can’t even spec or play SP, literally you get banned from the game.
My hope is that in a couple of days the instant resigning will also decrease once players realise the queue delay applies to these actions too. But, it is really bad that this wasn’t mentioned anywhere in patch notes. In fact, there should have been a in-game message about this.
It’s not been a day yet. As such, people haven’t yet adapted to the new system, and are gripping hot irons they didn’t know are now hot.
Give it a few days, natural selection will weed out the (very few) people who lack self-preservation and shall continue to induce this self-harm and the rest of the players will relatively smoothly adapt to actually playing a game outside of the one true map every once in a while.
Now i m pretty sure i ll just insta resign on maps like archipelago , socotra , arena , acropolis etc . I m not a pro , i only play this game cuz i wanna have fun . arabia is the only map where u can actually play aggressive , so i wanna play only arabia .
i really don t get the point of asking for bans/ time outs . This is just a game , we all wanna have fun . i m really not having fun on any other maps besides arabia . why should i be forced to play archipelago ?
