Good to know. Hopefully it will come before people leave the community because they have no way of getting "LOLIHATEINSERTRACEHERE" banned.

Read up, I edited my post when I saw the reply. This thread moves too fast. :/

In short: Yes, Demigod had 5v5 matches and full auto matchmaking ranked matches, and met all of your other criteria (your leave rate was publicly displayed, I think, but besides that there was no actual penalty for leaving while queued or after being matched up.)

You're higher, but I'm still pretty high up there

And doesn't have a massive leaver problem?. I have a feeling there's some piece of data missing from your holy grail here.

I'm not sure, I haven't played in a while. From what I remembered though, no, most peoples leave rates were generally low (because they would be dodged outside of ranked matches for a high leave rate anyway), and the leavers in Demigod were no more of a problem than feeders/morons/cowardly players (the worst kind, because they go something like 3/1/2 in a game and think they did great when they just picked up a couple of easy ganks and never helped push) are in League of Legends.

Also, it seems odd that, when the original question simply stipulated I name a game that fit your criteria, you are now nitpicking on features not based on the criteria. I like LoL more, there's no doubt about that, but Demigod happens to exactly fit your criteria, even if it has it's own problems.

Also, as a snide response, about every FPS ever fits your criteria, but those aren't really in the same genre, nor competitive for random matching.

EDIT: Also, how long are your queue times, anyway? Maybe I just feel less affected by the leaver issue because I'm relatively low Elo and have queue times of anywhere from 40 seconds to three or four minutes; my record isn't amazing (hovering around +30 w/l)

I actually was wondering this myself. What about people who don't pick a champion at all? Do they get some sort of penalty or are we forced to go with someone who doesn't have appropriate masteries/runes for their character and shows a blatant disregard for team synergy?



..and anyone complaining about Clarity Revive Mundo will shortly realize there will be less reason to do that. If those Mundo get into games then they will hate themselves for it just as much as you hate them (they waste just as much time as you). The "QUEUE DODGE ME!" people will shortly realize that their tactics just punish themselves.

FPS games don't really have 30 minute sessions.

To be fair, one of my criteria was "Players are happy with "
