  1. I think the feeding part is handled well, they get the punishment. But with leavers, I totally agree that it is a huge problem! If the game ends before their disconnect timer runs out, they don't get punished and it does not go in the stats as I remember (correct me if I'm wrong, not sure about it). That allows people to just feel when they don't like it....... Also when game is remaked then they get away with it too... edit// I forgot to propose a solution lol I believe if they can make those situations punishable somehow, it'd be super nice. I thought of proposing to decrease the dc timer but then it's unfair with people who really have a connection issue, or needs to restart etc.
  2. I agree, also it's a good way to invite them for the next game, including the ones in the opposing team. ^^
  3. yeah^ if you don't wanna deal with changing the settings you can just: right click where you want to take it, then press SHIFT+H this will put the commant at H (Hold by default) in queue after walking action, so once the creep reaches the destination, the next command (hold) will be applied, and it'll just stand still.
  4. I won't discuss the decision made further, as I explained you again in a message, I still believe it was correct. I believe the SGM responded the points you mentioned in your appeal. He did not respond in a long and detailed way like I did since they have limited resource and time as they need to reply other players too, but he explained the actions which led to the decision. I don't agree with your comment where you are saying "you have done wrong and hence you are suspended, you don't need to know why". You have done the same in the original post too: I can see that in every message he had sentences where he explained his point of view while giving an example of an action you did, so I think you're exaggerating the whole thing in the two quotes I mentioned above. If he made a human error and called a non-carry hero a carry, or even wrongly said your GPM was higher, these still would not change the decision. As I mentioned in my PM too, there were many points and you had a diffferent excuse for each of them, which may have lead him to think you may be lying. So I understand why he thought that way, but would I use the same words he used? maybe not. I have a corporate background but this is a game and the written language here is less formal, so when I look at the whole sentence I see that he does not mean it to harm you or insult you but says that simply because of the reason I mentioned above. He even starts with saying he has respect for high rank players (such as yourself, as you mentioned you are a high rank player). I think I have given more details than I should have, but I'll end here, I really don't think this case needs to go further than this :<
  5. That's right! If you would like to compare further: All the stats here are for your team, not the opponent. 50% is denoted as .500 60% as .600 ..etc. source: https://sabr.org/journal/article/probabilities-of-victory-in-head-to-head-team-matchups/
  6. I totally agree with Vodoo Jester Succubus is pretty good too, for the obvious insta heal with true dmg and quite long sleep skill. I'd also add Plague Rider maybe.. you can just spam Q and harrass the enemy very well. Every Q you use after level 3-4 has a chance to be followed by your W + your carry's skills, so it's kinda frightening. Q already has an OK slow and on top of that if you bind them where they are for a few seconds, there is a chance of kill. If you have a carry which is not too dependant on farm (like Ravenor, Swiftblade, Corrupted, Calamity, Gemini.. basically any hero that deals good skill dmg - unlike TDL, Scout, magebane without any skill/brust dmg) then Polly is scary too. His Morph has a decent range and you can follow up by the tongue, or if you are against a double lane can use them on each while your carry/ganker gets to work. Rhapsody is not too intimidating alone but she is sustainable and his stun can be useful in ganks and harrassing, especially against heroes which have high cast time skills, as you can keep interrupting them or use it to maintain the safe distance Engineer still does good if you play well with him. Bombardier can be useful if you manage to play safe, good dmg in mid-late game too.
  7. I'll just mention some general stuff here and then talk just a little about the particular case briefly as it's not allowed to discuss the decision in detail. I have asked Kei to send the screenshots and he forwarded them to me. I also found the game and watched the replay. I have been in the GM team for a while and many of my decisions were overturned (mostly due to human error or lack of experience, never intentionally banned ofc), so I have a bit of a first hand experience from the other side. I also played with Shattered in the past too, so I tried my best and hopefully succeeded in keeping this without any preconceptions. I have also explained everything very detailed in a private message I sent you, which I hope would make you understand the decision better. I still wanted to post this message in the forum to not leave this unanswered. There are more to the way GMs review cases than known which I obviously cannot disclose, but I agree with the things said above: that the GMs don't simply ban someone without enough evidence that the action is against the rules and the values their processes are based on. There are always disagreements between players whether an action is bannable or not, but those processes within GM team are set to prevent those decisions from being subjective. In general but especially in appeals, they are very careful about that there is no conflict of interest, no human error or anything which may cause an unjust situation. Also that another person taking a look at the case might provide a different point of view. All of this is to ensure that the case is not reviewed in favor of the GM and the actual aim is to conclude it with the right thing to do. As they are still humans, and mistakes can rarely happen. However, in this particular case, I am afraid I won't be able to say you have been wronged. The information you provided after the decision does not justify your ingame behaviour and I believe they do not align with what you did either. I understand that you thought the game is already over (which I kinda agree, the difference was quite high between teams), it still does not justify intentionally dying. You have presented excuses for every point of the decision but ultimately some of them are either subjective, wrong or irrelevant from each other. It would be understandable if you wanted to avoid fights/stood behind/went jungle to farm/did not engage with pushing enemies due to the huge level and gold difference, but it's not ok that you would let yourself die multiple times -which looked like intentionally, just because enemy team are dominating the game, your team plays very bad and the other reasons you provided. I understand you are particularly offended about being called a liar, but I believe what you mentioned here is only one part of the conversation and not the whole thing. While I absolutely respect that you felt offended by it, I don't believe it was used to insult you in any way. I am trying to give as little detail here as possible so far due to the rules, but I have sent you a PM with a further explanation as well. The GMs can't go around and ask whether players did something intentionally or not, everyone would of course deny their intentions in order to avoid a ban. So maybe you have not done it intentionally and you believe it, but there are many and enough evidence that points to the violation of the code of conduct. ... I'm sorry about the ban, but I hope my PM was able to explain it to you a bit further.
  8. I agree with that turning his E to only slow will make him useless as he can't do much in laning phase in terms of harrasing etc. Wouldn't it be nice that E skill would throw his sword to an enemy, the sword stays on enemy for some time, causing DoT bleed on enemy and (maybe tapering) slow aura around him it can be a low-mid damage skill with low-mid mana cost which can be used for harrassing and would not be too powerful
