"Manages" to escape?? Do you suppose they seriously mean you shouldn't get a win if someone "manages" to hit a button? It's one thing if that slippery druid manages to elude you and you don't get a kill. Where is the skill in hitting the forfeit button, exactly?
I saw a suggestion on the o-boards that if having fights go at least a minute is so important to them, they should just make the forfeit button unavailable for the first minute of the match. This seemed like an obvious answer to me. It solves their insta-win "problem" (Was it really that big a problem? Bigger than this?) but real players don't get all the frustration of trolls forfeiting constantly and clogging up the queues with nobody getting wins.
