Ok this is REALLY annoying.
Y usually play on LA or Brazil, since I'm from Uruguay. Queue WAY TOO MANY TIMES goes "couldn't find a match", so I just alt-tab after pressing OK. However, the game does not notify you you finally join a match (after what? 5? 10 tries?) so It's just normal to forget to check the game before select-god-countdown would end.
And now I'm not just getting 24 hours ban but 125 hours ban!!! WTF!!! I hate too to not be able to play, but it is just boring to stay with smite on screen when u know that ull probably not join a match...
