Meddler on Surrender Timer

In a boards thread inquiring about the possibility of lowering or otherwise changing the surrender timer, Meddler commented:
"We've been looking at early surrender options a bit recently. There are definitely some games it'd be good to allow people to get out of quicker. At the same time we don't want to create a lot of extra games where some of a team chose to give up too early, when other players are doing well enough it's still a winnable game they want to keep playing. What we're thinking of as a result is testing out an early surrender option, but only if the entire team unanimously agrees to surrender. Something like 100% agreement between minutes 15-20 and then normal surrender rules after that. Ensures that no player gets forced out of a game they want to keep playing, while giving an option for things like the 2 people DC'd for a while case, or the 24 to 0 by 14 minutes game that's effectively decided. 

Again, that's something we're interested in testing, probably just in a single region to start with, not a committed plan or anything. There are likely other improvements that could be made to the surrender system to, that looks like one of the clearest wins though, hence work on it being tested first."
