so before 5v5 dropped, a lot of people on the old forums claimed that it is way easier to win a 4v5 than a 2v3 and thus an afk player wont impact the game as much in 5v5 as it does in 3v3.
thanks to the starting bugs, a few of you should have encountered afk players already in the game. how did this turn out for you?
i personally think that 4 players only from the start make it nigh impossible to win the game. you simply cant split push or defend as good anymore. there is just too much on the map to cover.
i had two games with an early afk, they were both losses, but i am unsure how much of that loss is due to the afk player, as i won every game where my team won the early game and i lost every game where the enemies got it.
