But only if they're playing the same character as you.
And if they're in the same League Division as you.
And if they have the same amount of League Points as you.
And only if they play exactly like you.
And if they're an exact clone of you.
But surely at the shop or something there could be a method to say you wish to leave a game, then it appears to people searching to Drop into a game around the same MMR.
Then, once the replacement - who already knows about the state of the game and who they will be playing - has loaded in they can return to base and make the switch.
Sure, often you won't be able to get anyone who wants to, but it is an awful lot better than being so heavily reliant on other people internet connections. Of the last four games I have played, there have been 3 individual DC's. two on my team - which we went on two lose, and one on the other team - which we won.
Every game we have been off to a good start, then suddenly there are more of them than there are of us and we get caught out in 2v1's because there is less money to go around for wards etc. I'm sick of who winning being decided by who gets lucky on not having people disconnect rather than skill.
