Post Surrender problem.
When you surrender, or reclaim, nobody else can do so until a certain time limit. This script could be exploited by a troll in the near future, and I will explain how.

When someone surrenders, like I said, nobody else can until a few seconds later. However, if that same person keeps surrendering (or reclaiming, it doesn't matter which one), they keep other people from doing so. We can all see how that can be considered an exploit, as it is an abuse of a given feature within a game using the flaws of that same feature. Besides that, it will also spam the screen with the surrender text, leaving precious focus unavailable. It's like an alternative to spamming chat messages, but worse. What makes it worse is that if the team actually wanted to surrender, they would be hard pressed to do so.

I suggest a short waiting time before being able to surrender again, like 10 to 30 seconds. That should give enough time for the rest of the team to recover.

Isn't this prolonging the problem you are reporting...

Well, I don't know a better solution, but I do know the problem. Maybe a restriction on how many times you can surrender maybe? I don't know.

Limited to 2 surrenders and one reclaim. You can vote again if someone leaves.

Don't I recall saying stop calling every single thing an exploit?

Yeah, that was a laugh, wasn't it?

I'm not even looking at this bug report, or any future bug report from you that has the word "exploit" in it. Learn to make proper bug reports.
