Oh, I didn't even pay attention to it.

If it's QM? Can't do anything about it. Don't play QM if you can't tolerate the odd comps that can happen.

It's not a guaranteed loss though. You have different win conditions and should try to press that advantage instead.
Help me out here, I'm having trouble figuring out which team is at the disadvantage......

I usually don't agree on such posts, but in my last 5 games, three of them had afkers. What amazing about them they don't just do nothing, they stand in a bush near a wave minion so that they don't get afk status. Right now I'm so frustrated that I ask my self, is it the forced losses that people keep mentioning or is it just I'm really unlucky?

When I look at match history, out of last 12 unranked draft games I won just 4 games. 3 of these 8 losses had afkers like mentioned, 1 some one refused to take tank, 1 took Chen as main tank (It pains me to say this, he had rough time), 1 some one picked Aba in not a right comb, 1 some one took Tassadar with no aa hero in the team and also didn't do well (again it makes me sad saying this about Tass). Only one lost game that I actually had fun playing even though we didn't win and even though it was a bit snowbally (Alterac Pass).

I'm sorry if this sounded like a rant. At the moment I'm really frustrated because of this and it feels good just letting it out!

Back to the subject, I can totally understand the reasoning behind asking for a concede button, especially in these 3 games with afkers, we wished we could have spared the time gone wasted.

It's Alterac Pass. Specialists suck in general on that map because of the objective.
On a map like BHB or Cursed Hollow, it would be reversed, with the assassins at the disadvantage due to the better split-pushing capability.

I want to know how that Li-ming did more pve damage than Azmodan.

I think this is a l2p issue (maybe not yours per-say).

3 specialist vs 3 assassins

So?
Junkrat and KT have great wave clear.
Gazlowe and Murky can definitely build to output single target damage, and Azmo and Gazlowe can build to output aoe damage.

I agree with the surrender button, but mostly because of people who think composition determines if you win or lose, rather than how you should approach the game.

So what you are saying is you looked at the team comps and gave up? Sounds more like you fulfilled your prophecy to lose instead of actually trying.

And speaking from experience, you probably knew from the loading screen that this was going to be a bad game.
Blizzard just won't do the easiest/simplest thing ever and just keep roles mostly mirrored. There should NEVER be a team with all assassins versus all specialists unless a 5 stack makes that choice.

I've literally been saying this for 2 years now.
I really don't see why there's not a surrender option; at some points it becomes obvious what's going on (when you're at a 10 kill disadvantage) and its not dishonerable to throw in the towel.

Just make it not usable till 10 minutes in or something.
Surrender would be pretty nice, 90% of matches are over before they begin because you have a bad draft or a known afker on your team.

Like my last match, had a Zeratul that died 21 times intentionally; spawned, ran into the enemy team, died, repeat. All match long.
