"The game is safe to leave"

#1tote_allPosted 3/15/2012 10:14:44 PM
What is it safe for, exactly? I wrongly assumed it simply wouldn't count towards score or MMR, but apparently it still does to both. Is it just "you won't get an "abandoned" game on your profile"?

What are the downsides of abandoning a game?

Is there a FAQ or guide or something where I can read the ladder rules?

If you abandon a game you get put into a "low priority" queue for 24 hours. Basically meaning that you only get put into games with other people who have left, or who have been reported for something or other.

The game being "safe to leave" means you wont get put into low priority for leaving it.

Safe to leave? MORE LIKE GOOD LUCK SUCKERS.

When the game is safe to leave, you can leave and you won't get a loss or win either.

Do you have a source for this? Because, based on my experience, this is wrong.

I think you have to stay until the ancient dies for it to not count, oddly enough.

That would make the message completely nonsensical and again, wrong in my experience.

when you leave after its safe to leave, it means you get a loss instead of an abandon.

This seems accurate.

And kinda disappointing.

MMR changes in the exact same way, though?
