GAME BUILD #: 101.101.54684.0 7486483
GAME PLATFORM: Steam
OPERATING SYSTEM: Windows 10
During ranked RM MP game, my teammates resigned within the first minute so I did too. I was then issued a 5 minute queue-rejoining cooldown because I had “left the queue early”
FREQUENCY OF ISSUE
Only seen once and I don’t want to test it in case I am hit with more cooldowns.
Here’s the steps to reproduce the issue:
- Join ranked RM MP game
- Resign within the first minute
- Attempt to join a new RM MP game
No cooldown should be issued in cases like this.
Apologies, did not take a screenshot in time.

Cannot upload savefile because I am a new user.
Some people have proposed that only the first Alt-F4/resign player should receive the penalty. I suspect the devs did not take this into account, because they assumed arranged multiplayer teams would just rotate through having someone resign early until they got the map they wanted. I don’t think this will actually happen, because the whole team will now need to wait for the resigning player, and the whole team still gets a loss in game and Elo.
I assume they will address this with a future patch.
In the meantime, if someone resigns early, you can:
- Practice your build order
- Try a crazy all-in strategy.
- Go to the bathroom (AFK)
I recognize that ultimately this acts like a penalty to you, even though you didn’t resign. However, the system is intended to reduce early resigns and it just might take some time to be effective.
Hi @CambridgeCircus !
Thanks, we are already tracking this issue!
Got the same problem here.
One of my teammates resigns within a couple of seconds. Me and my team then resign of course, and I get banned for one hour? Maybe there is a chance to optimize the penalty system.
Thank you very much.
