    You need to be careful with this kind of penalisation. Sometimes things happen and you have to cancel/quit. I'd rather this kind of thing was tracked a bit over time so if you abandon a few games in a small time period, you get penalised.

    That only happens if you click LEAVE in the pregame lobby. If you leave the game while playing... dunno what happens.

    That's effectively a forfeit. If you disconnect and reconnect in the timeout, you can keep playing, but if you're abandoning the game, then it's a loss in terms of ranking.

    What if I do play myself with 2 instances of PA and 2 accounts and leave the game while playing with both of them within seconds, and click abondon in the search after that?
    If that affects my ranking I hope you will reset the rating for stable or have them separate in PTE in the first place.

    This does not affect your ladder rating - only victories or losses do.

    Yay, Uber!

    But Uber, I don't get why there is a Leave option pre-match? and the only penalty is just a 5 minute cooldown. You can just leave the game everytime there is an opponent who you know can beat you... I think there should be more than a cooldown of 5 mins, something like you lose points, or, you just take out the leave button...

    How are the maps? Can someone post them? Can't play for a little while, my anticipation is peaked.

    I can't post them, but I can tell you they are rather bad and only 3. Basically this is a test not about the maps.

    Sometimes you have to leave for urgent reasons, so the penalty starts out at a meager 5 minutes. If you keep your "leaver" behavior up, your penalty increases significantly.
