What the hell with all the quiting

Okay so I finished a game that left me rubbing my head for no reason other then I called it.

I saw my team mates leave one by one when we lost one round barring one guy, (so that person, respect for not just sticking it out [ wouldn’t have blamed you if you left after a triple quit ] but for not leaving me alone with the other team, much respect.)

I even made a post about doing something about the quitters / willing discontents in the beta and people kind of laughed it off, and seeing how people get forced out now. ouch, just ouch.

Today was brutal for me with the Quitters also. I pretty much only play Koth for Xp. Played alot and 9x out of 10 had a quitter. Just a bad day that’s all. Let’s see what tomorrow brings.

I see posts like this very frequent. Is one of the reasons due to people wanting to keep a high k/d?

We have so many (too mamy?) threads about this subject. It certainly is bad, I have tried to come to terms with it.
I have mentioned before that if I get a team (team mate, that is a laugh in its self) mate quit, I will quit. I play KOTH almost exclusively and I just can’t be bothered not only fighting the awful matchmaking on an almost game by game basis but then going 5 v 4 or even worse.

I have game chat on and I do apologise via that, I will never quit first but I just can’t be doing with all this shitte.

I did get a message a few days ago after I quit…AFTER a team mate quit. It simply said “reported” I answered why ? I didn’t quit first and if he wanted to stick around, good for him. I’m “allowed” to do this on Gears and I would rather find a new match.

Bare in mind usually I am the only one talking, spotting, call outs ect. Even then I will get a team mate on occasion telling me to shut up…you can’t win. :hushed:

With all that said, last played on Monday afternoon. 5 x KOTH, 5 victories (I mostly was carried) with NO quitters, it was rather lovely :+1::facepunch:


I only quit out if I had a team mate quit, but I can’t stand a quitter. They are literally the worst.

This happens in a lot of games but is particularly bad in F2P and Gamepass games because of the amount of casual/non-committed players. The only way to stamp it out is harsh quit penalties but the devs are often scared of that as it means they’re turning away customers.
