People quit constantly anyway. I have almost never finished a ranked koth match in which there was not a quitter. Any tdm blowout also has quitters.
AT LEAST remove it for games that have not yet started - as in, while the lobby is still forming. I’m often banned because a backing out of a game that fails to ever start. (I’m writing this during just such an occasion.) - - this seems like a huge bug that has never been addressed.
At the very least I should ALWAYS be able to rejoin any game I am penalized for leaving.
With the new ranked system, you could put a big point penalty on leaving resulting in a demotion. (the higher the rank the higher the penalty - or it could be a % of your points. )
This would mean that people could sacrifice points for what is actually valuable (time).
I have very limited time, I dont care much about my rank, but I want to have fun against good competition.
I don’t get to play that much these days, and when i do its with my brothers who are spread out across the country. We might set aside two hours, so when we get banned for 20 minutes because of a design flaw in your game it becomes pretty hard to justify coming back to play again.
It’s a terrible experience to have to wait 20 minutes because of a flaw that exists in your game.
