    Shouldn't surrendering in 1v1 matches be available the second the game starts?

    I mean really, who the heck wants to go into a 1v1 match like the game mode of the day today and know they're going to lose but have to waste time because you can't surrender before 10 minutes.

    I'm just saying, it's only one person, it's their decision, and there's not really any reason to not allow two people the option to surrender the second the match starts.

    I agree. You should be able to surrender in a 1 v 1.

    That attitude, only having fun when you're clearly winning. *rollz*

    I disagree.

    I disagree.
    That attitude, implying that's what I meant, matches can be anti-fun regardless if you're winning or not, taking someone's right away to do what they want is a bit much.

    I think surrender should be an option sooner if they have a substantial lead like a mercy rule, but having insta surrender would be abused by people to get gods they are good at.

    I was thinking that exact thing, haha.

    dumb idea imo, because a game can change from even just 1 kill if you are behind a lot.

    This.

    I watched Divios' joust Awilix v. Herc.

    Divios was Awilix. Got outplayed the whole match. Then he gets one kill and wins the game.

    Yep.

    This. I played a 1v1 against zapman once, and he outpushed me HARD. Took my tier one very quickly. Eventually I learned his aggressive pattern and countered him. He made a move and I saw it coming and killed him. He surrendered after that I'm sure because his time slot in a stream was ending or something, but still. I waited. I was patient. And I LEARNED. Who knows how that game would have ended if he stayed? Maybe I would have come back from that terrible start.


    You guys just need to stick with it, stop giving up and LEARN. If you're SUPER impatient then you shouldn't play a MOBA.

    1 v 1's should be removed to be honest. It's a team game, not a fighting game. Far too much imbalance once you remove the team element.

    Me: ATHENA DOESN'T KNOW THE MEANING OF RETREAT!
    Friend: Well she better freaking learn it!

    Me: OK, I retreated back to base... Just wait 20 seconds.
