Max number of deaths before you should just leave a game?

Postby somen00b » Mon Mar 28, 2016 1:45 am

Regarding public games, sometimes I think "If I die X times, I should just leave". What should X be? Also, is that rule of thumb really a good idea or are there other factors to consider? I want to hear people's opinions on this.

edit: Alternative title: "When should you leave a public game to help your team?"

edit2: I mean this as advice for people to follow if they want to, NOT as some sort of kick feature to add to the game.

Deaths is not a good measure of being useless.


I think being X levels behind is more accurate, but i doubt we do something like this. First off it adds ectra triggers to check, 2nd it would boot observers in IH (if levels). 3rd, there are scenarios where the numbers lie on contributions. I have go e like 3-15 with lurker but set up dozens of kills for someone else. FB can easily have a lot of deaths while helping your team a ton

I in no way intended to advocate an auto-kick feature with my post. That would make it impossible for people to learn when they are new.

Good advice thanks.

There's no indication of how many deaths it takes to leave, it's a numbers game and although there are obvious situations where your team would benefit from leaver bonus more than having someone who feeds even someone with a lot of deaths can be helpful to the team if they are supporting as in spreading detectors, buying base d, expo, helping clear farms, and even early upgrades at times. You should consider your level and whether you can catch up and should consider if you can help out the team in some way. I prefer having more teammates if they are playing the supporting role despite their number of deaths; however, if they're just feeding and not helping with the other stuff I'd rather see them leave for the extra leaver bonus.

hmm... whatever the number is when John reaches 350 statups with Raven lol.

(But in all seriousness any drone, raven, queen etc turtle game where they're defending 1 building for 2 hours, I will throw in the towel those games. I've been on both sides over years, but it's miserable on the flip side. I still think Base Ult should go unlimited range after 4 enemy buildings go down, I always did agree with Dark that HA should be a <1 hr game)

Do they play Heroes of the Swarm? I never see them online at all.
