Leaver Penalty Change in Storm League Season 1

Recommended Posts

36992-player-reporting-technology-improv

Leaver Penalty in Heroes of the Storm has been changed in Qhira's patch and you must now win 3 Quick Match or Brawl games without disconnecting to clear your leaver status.

Players should now think twice before disconnecting from the game because as of the latest Season, they will need to win 3 games to clear their leaver status (as opposed to playing a single match in the past). What do you think about the change?

So, it’s mentioned before but the number of required games for having leaver status doesn’t decrease after playing QM or brawl. I’ve played 5 or 6 games for 3 required QM and brawl and it still says I have a leaver status and I have to play 3 games. Can you guys please fix this issue?

Hey PilotJones!

This season, leaver games now require you to Win the game to clear it and not just play them. This can be confirmed by mousing over the leaver status icon under your profile portrait.

In the games that you have played, have you won enough games to clear your leaver status?

Good thing that will never affect me.
Still, I like it.

...yeah yeah "but what about those that just had a disconnect uwu" but honestly, if the game required normal games played leavers could afk macro through them. And you definately can make sure that the chance of you getting disconnects is slim. Also, if you get disconnects multiple times, maybe you should not stick to online multiplayer games since it gives a negative experience for nine other players.

Only thing that I could see as "harsh" is winning 3 games. Maybe a bit too much for a first leaver offence but aside from that I support it.

lol holy moly Best decision they've made in a long time. Then again QM has a bunch of trolls already but this is genius. Seriously though who likes having a bot in your ranked game? Non-justifiable.

I'd wish they implement something similar in their other games. Though that would be rather difficult in WoW for example. Can't imagine how one would do that. There is the deserter tho, but one can just que or do something else for 30min... so yeah dunno about that solution. NOT that it's a huge problem.

They can do it way better.
There must be an algorithm tracking your disconnects the same way the silence works. If you disconnect lets say once per week or per 5 days - no penalty. Everything happens - emergency, electricity, internet provider, windows updates 😄 . If it happens again - 3 wins. If its tendentiously it should stack 3-6-9. If you leave a QM/brawl game during your penalty it should reset the counter. 

Implementing that in WoW is not hard either. If you leave a M+ before the timer ends or last boss killed you get a penalty and key can't be started with you in the party. If you like to leave keys it should stacks 1-2-3 hours. If you really love leaving locking not only 1 character but the whole account for a day or more so you can't participate in any M+. Ofcourse there should be some timer for leaving after the timer ends. Lets say you are stuck in a key for 40min or even more and at some point you can't go anymore so you want to leave - this should not be punished.

      Lady Vashj Is Not The Next Hero Heroic Deals: Week of March 25th 2020 Ranked Season 1 Extended By 2 Weeks All Heroes Unlocked Until April 2nd
    • By Stan
      The time has come to speculate who the next Hero might be and for now, we know it's not Vashj.
      Players have started speculating on Reddit who the next Hero might be and the hottest candidate was Lady Vashj, as she was recently added in Hearthstone's Ashes of Outland expansion and her Medusa-like appearance would be a nice fit for the upcoming Greek Gods event. On top of that, Heroes including Qhira have voice interactions recorded with the naga.
      Heroes of the Storm developer David Warner responded on Reddit that the next Hero isn't Lady Vashj and that the team has been thinking up funny voice lines for potential Hero interactions for years now, so the recorded interactions don't really mean a thing when it comes to determining the next Hero.

      While it may seem obvious because of the circumstantial evidence surrounding her (like Qhira's voicelines), nothing is set in stone and as much as I'd hate to say it, the Heroes team is not known for their clear and concise hints. You can look at something like D.va's announcement or Whitemane's teasers to see that much. All this hype does is potentially set the community up for disappointment and put an enormous amount of stress on the 10 skeletons still working on HotS development.
      Please hype responsibly.
      I've seen a lot of casual daydreaming and "what ifs" being taken as absolute truth lately. Remember that literally anyone can be writing these posts, and the odds of some forum rando having the exclusive inside scoop on our work is extremely low.
      Our writers have been thinking up fun voice lines for *potential* hero interactions for years now. It's not necessarily an indication of anything but the future proofing process.
      Cheers,
      David
      P.S. The next new Hero isn't Vashj and there's no hidden cryptic messages anywhere in this post ?

      It appears that Blizzard has extended 2020 Ranked Season 1 by two weeks.
      Blizzard has extended the ongoing Season by two weeks after they enabled all Heroes for play until April 2nd due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We now have one month remaining instead of two weeks.

      2020 Ranked Season 2 will likely go live with the recently-announced Greek Gods event which comes with new skins for Cassia, Tracer, a Pegasus mount, and more.

      Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Blizzard made all Heroes free to play until April 2.
      Placeholder for tweet 1241138506744786944 Earlier today, we learned about the +100% increase to Experience gains in World of Warcraft. Heroes of the Storm isn't staying behind and received similar treatment, as all Heroes have been unlocked until April 2.

      Trying to do what we can to make staying inside, working from home, or being socially distant right now easier!
      Have fun trying out the heroes you have never played before!
      This is a great opportunity to try out Heroes that you never owned/played. Don't forget that reaching level 5 with a Hero rewards 500 Gold.
