Dota 2 Official FAQ's Out

Now if you haven't heard about Dota 2 then chances are you're really not that interested in this post to begin with. But if I still haven't lost you then I'm pretty sure you were playing DOTA before taking a break and stumbling on my blog. Anyway Icefrog's collaboration with Valve to develop a big budget DOTA sequel is well underway and the official blog has been gracious enough to answer all the lingering questions fans had. I think the most interesting one is this:

Q: Is there reconnect support for DotA 2? (by Vanes-UT)
A: This was actually one of the very first things we added early on, before the game was stable, in order to help with testing. You’ll also be able to have a friend of similar skill level substitute for you in case you have to leave. Players that want to improve their reputation in the game and community will also be able to help out by joining ongoing games that are missing players.

The capability to reconnect to an ongoing game would really be great because nobody would call you a leaver if you come back right? Plus you wouldn't have to explain that you were disconnected right when it looked like you weren't having any fun because you always died. I'm really hoping this would be the easiest way to determine which people I'd ban and kick off the games I serve. Check on the source link for the full FAQ.
