I know there was a lot of talk about teams surrendering prematurely, but I just want to address this more to players than a plead for devs. Come on people, have some backbone, don’t give up on first small setback. It’s been ages before I saw a match where at least one person from my or enemy team did not try to vote for surrender like less than 5 minutes into the match. Like this
I play mostly meltdown and this is really big annoyance now. You get behind like 50 points and there’s a vote for surrender. And then you have to spend a couple minutes trying to explain, that actually your team is winning, since you all have gear activated and enemy has not, there are a few players out-leveling enemy team and this small difference in the beginning does not mean a thing. And most of such cases, you still win in the end, just that I always wonder, how hard are people actually trying to win after they initiated the vote for surrender? Or did they just surrender themselves and coast waiting for actual loss.
Of course, this could be changed by devs by making that you cannot vote for surrender at least before enemy team has reach for example 350 points (since it’s actually like 3-4 times harder to escort minions through the second phase than first). But it would much better if people just tried to win until it’s actually all lost. And that means that enemies are winning 200 points or something close, and they are so much higher level that they don’t let you leave your spawn for couple of minutes (and even then you can still make it work, but ok I could understand that).
So to sum up people - TRY, you might actually succeed if you do so. And if not, you might actually learn something how to play better from what enemy team does.
