So today I’m doing my frost mage elite set and 4th game in I match with a priest who played round 1 normally, but when it put him with me on round 2 he sat afk in the room. I then get shuffled against him the following round and he was playing again like nothing happened. Is there any hope for people like this to get punished since it’s literally hurting others? I almost feel like there should be a system that detects this kind of griefing and deploys some sort of safety net to stop it.
Also on an off-topic I was watching a pika video out of boredom the other day and noticed he outright called a dude a lobby griefer who seems to be known for his leaving antics. He gets into a match with pika, takes 2 seconds, and leaves.
With this situation and the one I experienced I’m curious if we’ll actually see some sort of punishments and clarity from blizz on what they’re doing to curb the behavior. With Solo que RBG’s releasing in 10.2 potentially i’m gonna dread leavers in that.
Aside from all the ranting I have completed basically all my goals I set out to do this season. I achieved duelist for the 2nd time to get the pretty enchant, I’ve farmed several of the elite sets I wanted, and overall outside of these tilting experiences I’m loving this season.
Blizzard can’t even create a somewhat useful system that detects bot software or abnormal keystrokes. How are they going to create software that detects the inherent malicious intent of a player to undermine a teammate they dislike? I swear Blizzard Tech Support couldn’t tell you how to reset a router at this point.
People are only calling for harsher punishments for leavers and griefers because they are annoyed about sitting an hour long que to get screwed over. What we should really be focused on with all this is the que times which blizz could help fix by cranking healer mmr up. If dps and healer ques equal out a bit, people won’t be so salty about a leaver. And people who get off on griefing other people cuz they don’t like the lobby will only be hurting themselves and have less of a reason to do so.
