Idle timer too short

What is the new time limit before being kicked for idling? I got up to go to the bathroom for 60 seconds and all of a sudden I’m kicked from an hour long CS match

    In the 60 secs you spent away from the match, in HvV, that can cost your team at least 3 valuable points. If you leave your team in a 3v4 for a full minute, that can cost your team a victory. Don't join a match if you know you're going to have to take a break halfway through.

    That's nice and all, but the OP specifically mentioned Capital Supremacy, where the matches go a lot longer than HvV.

    This exact thing happened to me today OP so I know how you feel.

    Agreed. It's ridiculously short and one of the many unneeded changes they made in these most recent patches. It needs to be reverted, badly.

    That's absurd. I can pick up a lot more points with an empty bladder than I can sitting on the title screen, while my team is left a man down for an indeterminate amount of time. Think about how many tickets you're losing with no 4th teammate, rather than a teammate who was gone for a brief amount of time.
