But when it's a team effort and you can't even be bothered to try to play better for the sake of your team... man, fuck those guys. At least when I was running Source servers or playing on the UT2k4 servers I had admin rights on I could ban them for a few hours until they had a chance to think about their priorities in a team game.
Because WoW is the only other game I spent a significant amount of time and energy on, which also has the fucking stupid decision to implement game mechanics which remove players from the game. Dota then exacerbates it by making you sit in time-out, which just makes deaths even more frustrating. Counter-Strike shares this, too, but even flashbangs don't prevent a skilled player from reacting.@Pizza, AGAIN another post from you where something is OP. And comparing it to WoW also. I just.... don't know what to say to you at this point. If dota is simply a matter of who stuns who first, then I imagine you should form a competitive team, pick 5 heros with stuns, and faceroll to victory? The more and more you speak about dota, the less and less I think you have a clue what you are talking about. Though now it has spread to WoW also.

Granted, I accept that those automated systems need to be in place because regardless of reasons, abandoning a game is dicking over the other nine players... but, christ, that kind of frustration shouldn't be in a game. Aren't games supposed to be fun?
