Low Priority Question
Is there anyone I can speak with about being on Low Priority, and maybe getting off it? I ended up getting kicked off due to a power loss not because I left the game...I really don't feel like being on Low Priority for 24 hours because my house lost power :(

i have the same problem here, my idea is that Valve should make an "Excuse" button and tell your excuse and take you out from Low Priority

So then there's no point in having Low Priority as a feature at all.

So in other words - I gotta wait the 24 hours -_-

You don't get Low Priority the first time you get an abandon. You get Low Priority after a history of abandonments and being reported.

No I understand the way of getting into Low Priority BUT their are other ways of getting it other than "Abandonments" ex: internet connect, family emergencies, power loss, ect..I don't abandon my games - This game was in the beginning of the match and with my friends.

But then how is Valve supposed to know whether the disconnect was accidental or on purpose?
And either way, the result is still the same - your team mates are one man short.

And it's not like the punishment is even severe - it's just one single day and you're still able to play the game. I really don't see what the big deal is.

But it still doesn't justify why I should be "Punished" for honest mistakes or misfortunes :(

Today while i was playing the lights were out , i reconnected in 8 min but they put me in low priority. This system sucks!

10 min to reconnect would be ok!

Well, either every leaver is punished or no one. I don't see any way to implement a middle ground, unless Valve hires a massive group of clairvoyants to find out whether you rage quitted, pulled the plug, had a power loss or your grandma had a heart attack and had to be brought to the hospital. And I'd much rather have a punishment system in place, even if that means getting into LP myself due to unforeseen circumstances.

And no, nobody is going to pull you from from the LP pool. Just wait it out. Play something else, do some laundry, whatever; it's only one day. Again, what's the big deal? Or do you get power outages every single day?

In 10 you would be so underleveled that you might actually be more of a burden to your team than helpful, unless you're really really good, playing a support with little need for money/items or lucky.

seems like the first abandon you do is like a grace, and any after that you get in the low priority, right now I'm in the low priority pool because of me not wanting to deal with the russians, I think valve should make it anytime after 5 abandons you should be put in the pool
