i do not agree with this at all. i played 3 games of dominion yesterday and had a DC on my team in each one. lost 1 won 1 and on the 3rd the player returned when we were behind 400 to 100 and he came back and won. its hard yes but not impossible to win 4v5... same as with SR.

One thing to keep in mind is that Dominion is supposed to be a quicker map. If you have a guy that DCs every game for a total of 2 minutes at the beginning, it will most likely affect Dominion games more than 5v5s just because of length of Dominion.

Consider other online multiplayer games like MMORPGS. If you DC there for even 30 seconds you could guarantee a wipe.

Although, maybe making your champ be auto-played by the comp would help alleviate this problem.


While I understand the reasoning behind the auto-play suggestion, the feeding this would cause for the other teams benefit would be astronomical. For that reason I'd vote 'no'.

they'll never instate team buffs upon a d/c because that will create a dynamic where poor players would be pressured to just leave the game instead of participating. It could also be used as a tactic to win which is not a playstyle that Riot values.

Disconnects ruin MOBAs?

STOP THE PRESSES!

I can't imagine they're going to have a 'ranked' dominion mode but if they did perhaps a short pause you could vote your way out of when somebody DCed would make sense, but nobody is going to wait around for 2 solid minutes in a 20 minute game mode for somebody to figure out their connection issues.

Well, DC's completely ruin ANY game mode.

At least even a 10 minute loss is worth more IP than a 20 minute bot game and almost as much as a 40-50 minute loss on SR. =)

Agreed, a way to pause the game is needed more than ever.

Just had a Kassadin d/c on our team with a 200+ points lead, the moment he went d/c the other team was 4-capping and inevitably 5-capped before the game ended.

So yeah, I'd say disconnects are a huge ****ing issue in this game. But they have been all along, regardless of it being SR or Dominion. Riot's too clueless to implement a DOTA-esque "buffer"; I guess they think players enjoy being punished for another player disconnecting (regardless of the issue) and being unable to do anything about it other than - 9 times out of 10 - get their ass handed to them promptly.
