    Post Offer draw to self to cancel waiting for opponent (3.14)

    I found that offering draw for ourself while waiting for opponent doesnt work anymore (at least for me). Dunno if its intended but i guess not. Just sayin, not that important.

    it doesnt matter if you can leave an unstarted game without it being considered a loss... if that still happens, then it does matter

    Yeah, that exploit got fixed. Thanks to everyone who reported it to us.

    @Caitlyn - This does indeed mean you can't get bored of waiting for an opponent and quit out with no penalty via this trick anymore. Once everyone is on the same version, there are about 30 games every 5 minutes, so really you should not be waiting long.

    What about if we start searching for a match accidentally and want to quit? Can we get an option for that?

    If you offer draw but wait until an opponent arrives before accepting, you can still leaves safely. It lets you get out of heroes you don't want to face on ladder.

    So we can't exit the long waiting without losing score? Why can't we keep the option to quit the game without losing score when opp hasn't shown up?

    I just got punished for having high rate and getting no opponent. I waited for 5mins and I couldn't play anymore and lost my score. Not that I care about the score and rating but this is going against easy play experience any mobile game should aim for.

    OK, well this is a difficult one to decide on. Score loss is meant to punish you for leaving early and stopping your opponent from getting a proper game. There is one perspective to say that waiting in the queue and then leaving is also preventing some as-yet-unknown person from getting their game as well. What if someone just left the queue before you joined it? We don't know.

    My advice has always been to hit Battle only when you are committed to playing. And I would assume as this is a new version that you will need to wait longer. Sorry I can't give the score back, but hopefully this policy will lead to quicker pairing in the end and help everyone.
