Yeah I have always wondered why NO game penalizes you for selecting "Quit Game". I can understand worrying about those with poor internet getting dropped as a result but physicall selecting Quit should be an easy code job for penallties. 


Possibly because then they would get complaints from people who were penalized for leaving the game for other reasons. Some people seem to have a tendency to think all people who quit only do it because they're mad they're losing, which just isn't true. Sometimes something real happens that you have to deal with like visitors, family, friends, pets, emergencies, etc. and since you can't just pause online games, you can either quit or leave your character there to get clobbered.

Even if that happens, it's ONE GAME where you are penalized for a real life reason. I would imagine people would likely take the penalty without too much of a problem with it since most other games they pplay won't contain a penalty. I know I wouldn''t mind it. So my Mom drops by...okay, quit game, take a loss or whatever other penalty is employed, and that's that.

^By quitting, you lose everything gained in that match (favor, xp, shards, armor, labors). How people take it would depend on what form the penalty took. Since there is already the aforementioned penalty, I figured you meant something more severe.

Didn't WoW have a penalty for leaving the battlegrounds? If you left early you couldn't join another for 5 min. Then if you left again it increased to 10 min. So on and so forth.

The penalty for leaving a battleground in WoW is 15 min. If you leave a dungeon group within the first 5 min you get a 30 min lockout.

Good idea but you guys act like all these drops are people quitting.. Seriously how can you think someone rage quits as often as this game drops players. There is no way that all these drops are rage quits. NO EFFING WAY and neither should any logical person. Sorry to sound rude but I'm tired or this argument

^Yeah i have been disconnected quite abit of times, so it might have happened to many ppl aswell. So rage qutting is only part of the problem the other part is probably poor server connections or something idk.

Lol WoW, that brings me back. Used to play untill few months after cata. I still cant believe all the wasted work on my warlock back wen 70 was elite & now u can just enter dungeon ques from a convenient menu. Remember wen u actually had to group up & go to the dungeons lol. Those wer the days. & on the topic, doesnt cod have penalties for quitting? I thot wen u quit it counts as a loss and u loose ur match bonus. Big whoop tho, thats the only penalty I would agree with on gowa, like others have said not everyone quits cuz there mad. Sometimes real life happens & u need to stop playing. Take it from me I have 2 children & a bitter x-fiance.... Life happens suk it up
