Implying servers have anything to do with patches.

Its called so many people got on for the patch on the main client that their servers crashed.

Yep they need something similar to what league has that puts excess people in a que to get into the servers.

That's one thing but I believe it also has something to do with the dota 2 inventories being taken off the marketplace and then putting them back. The test client doesn't have hats that are linked to the Steam main server.

Saying this because when I could still access my inventory on steam without starting dota 2 around 2 hours ago I saw a lot of blanks in my inventories for certain items

Cheer up guys, for those who havent read:
"Changed low-priority penalty metric from time-based to games played"
Now you cant simply sit out or play with your smurf accounts.

Whoever is in charge for this...our thanks.

More buffs to punishment are welcome.

that means instead of waiting 20000 hours to get out of LPQ for instance, now you have to complete 200 or maybe 2000 full games to get out of LPQ.

Which means whenever you turn off Dota 2 when you are in LPQ the timer will pause and not continue, unlike when it was time-based.

Afraid and scared now ? Yes you should

This is typically Valve. Just when when you think everything is fine and the update is out they screw something up and it's not quite there yet...

ROFL? Are you serious? I'm curious to see how many games need to be played for a standard 24 hour LPQ. Let's be honest here, I think we've all been in LPQ once for whatever reason. If we have to endure 30 minute queue times, for maybe 10 games, then this will get very annoying. With no concede option and harsher punishments for LPQ, there might be some backlash.

I think it will be like 3-5 games. 10 Seems pretty harsh, but who knows.

Not too bummed because I had fun with Rox Spirit and BBQ Spirit just playing against bots. Never bothered reinstalling WC3 to try them out, pleasantly surprised by how well their kits work.

Don make blind assumptions here, that everyone is like you. If you put in the effort you can probably have only 1 abandon out of 500 games at least. I've played over 1000 games and never been in LPQ once. I was mute banned two times though , and I have dced around 5-10 times but always managed to make it back before the five mins is over n because some ppl were kind enough to wait for me.

And yes of course it's supposed to be more annoying , if not what's the point of even changing it in the first place ? Maybe it doesnt scale like 10 hrs = 1 game though, that was just an example . some ppl would still feel this punishment is still not severe enough
