Forcing people to play is dumb

So someone disconnected from our game before it even began. Five minutes in, still nothing. Ten minutes, nothing. It's pointless to play a match like this.

But of course, you can't surrender until 20. And you can't just leave the game because it will keep trying to force you to reconnect.

I'm as much against dodges as the next person, and I think people who dodge frequently and indiscriminately to grief other people should be punished. However, when a game is clearly f*cked, it punishes the players to force them to play for at least 20 minutes.

When a person has been disconnected for at least five minutes, the surrender option should become available. Some of us actually have to work for a living and have limited time to play this game, and I'd rather spend time playing an enjoyable match then a stupid lopsided match.

This would be a good idea before the 20 minute mark. However, I once played a match where my teammate yi left before the game started, came back at the 20 minute mark (we were losing pretty bad), walks into the jungle, kills everything, continues to jungle until he is the same level as everyone else (around 16) and carried our team and we won. If we had surrendered earlier we could not have won.

Out of 20 games I can only see that happening once

The guys is giving an idea, maybe 1 player disconected ain't that bad but I've been in games with 2 even 3 or 1 dcd and 1 feeding intentionally and the variables here are endless, so surrender option being avalaible before 20 min mark would be a great option under specific circumstances.

Srrry for grammar. xd
