Placing this in the salt-mine because I think it’s the best place for it.
It was 3v3 ranked. I don’t quite understand what happened, but needless to say I’m a bit miffed. Maybe someone with better knowledge can explain. This is the first time I’ve ever experienced this, and the first time I’ve ever heard of it.
During a team fight in 3v3, our captain went AFK mid-battle. Stopped moving, obviously got targeted, killed. Was away for about two or three minutes - not sure if it was a true AFK or if they were in-game whilst this happened, but the ‘deserted’ announcement never went off.
After we got pushed pretty hard, our captain returned, though my teammate and I were pretty overwhelmed at this point. We (teammate and I) tried but ultimately we were overpowered by the other three opponents. My captain then dove in between them all, and died - this is where my captain went AFK again. We were about 10 minutes into the match.
Then, I see the “Need 3 votes to surrender” pop-up on the bottom-right of the screen, but my option to surrender was still on a timer. Confused, I made attempts to tap it, to no avail - and then the third tick went across. The match ended.
The end-game board appeared, and apparently I was the one that deserted.
Now I’m in LPQ.
With anyone of any knowledge of this scenario be able to help? Does anyone have any idea how this happened?
Some extra tidbits:
- I didn’t hang out at base, I tried my best to 2v3.
- I didn’t leave the app, lock my device, etc.
- I didn’t idle in any one spot for too long.
Pretty frustrating, and disappointing.
