    What's with the Smite match accept penalty?

    Why Smite is the only existing MOBA that punishes players the very first time they don't accept match? I simply don't understand the logic behind this and why Hi-Rez thinks it's good idea, when all the other MOBA developers only penalty players after they declined joining the match lobby several times.

    It's not wasting anyone's time, but mine. All the people that were queued for this match that I dodged are just gonna find next one in the span of 30 seconds. Meanwhile I have to wait 5 more minutes, because I went AFK when the game was searching for the players. You seem to not understand how the queue and lobby in MOBA games work, and neither does Hi-Rez understand that

    And since when being AFK when match accept pops ups equals to being AFK the whole game? Explain that

    That's quite the disregard of your fellow players.

    If it takes you 30 seconds to find a match then why did you go afk in that short amount of time.

    Now realistic it probably took you a few minutes to find a match and you went afk. Sometimes another one pops right away and other times it doesn't. And if 9 people have to wait an extra 30 like your example because of one.Then that equal about 4 1/2 minutes which is about equal to a 5 minute deserter penalty which is more then fair.

    Because you make 9 other people waste 4-5 mins of their life.

    Besides, the penalty for queue dodging is only 2 mins for the first time.

    Meanwhile those 9 people who waited 4 mins total 36min wasted.

    IMO not accepting queue is only fine when a technical or Smite issue stops you from accepting it IE queue pops but you can't accept because the screen darkened but the queue window isn't showing.

    There's are a tons of reasons why I had to get up from my PC and go somewhere and sometimes they just come up unexpected. It's called personal life, and one can never expect it if there's gonna be knocking at the door, an important phone call or any other circumstance right at the moment the game finds players. That's why leaving for such a short period of time only to find out that I've been penaltied to wait another 5 minutes is completely unfair.

    No I don't. They get immediately requeued for another match and don't have to wait for anything. Only I waste more time because of this stupid penalty system

    The first penalty is always 5 minutes, so I don't understand what you're saying.

    How exactly according to you a person can waste 36 minutes in a queue, simply because someone declined to join the match lobby? Those numbers don't add up no matter how you try

    The first time offense penalty is 2 mins.

    At least on PC, idk it may be different on ps4/xbox.

    Maybe if you own the paid version of Smite with all of the gods unlocked.

    I play on the free one, and it's always been 5 minutes
