Actually, I think I only quit 1 unranked match. I played against a guy a couple matches in a row and he always beat me. I didn't mind that, it was that he obviously was being a jerk. Like T-bagging and when it was him and I left in a stock match, he was the good Cole and would hold me in the air with his level 1 special when no one else is around and then kill me. It's like, "What's the big deal?" I just avoid those types. And then I sometimes quit when they do the random switch if I want work on a character. Other times I don't care.
Then stop playing FFA? I guarantee Sly level 1, Kratos chains, Sackboy corner spam, etc are defeatable in 2v2 and 1v1. Yes, I know 1v1 isn't ranked and 2v2 is only ranked if you already had a partner going in, but who cares? Ranks don't mean much in this game anyway.
I mean, don't get me wrong, those strategies can still be annoying in 1v1 and 2v2 (BD vs a good Sackboy is not fun at all), but they are all beatable if you're better than your opponent/know the matchup.
I agree with you but in order for this to take affect the "change your character right before the match starts" thing needs to be fixed first. There have been quite a few times where I would quit the match simply because the game made me be another character that I didn't pick. It would be messed up if people were penalized for this, for it would be like double penalization for them.
Whenever someone uses internet at my house, I get a 90% chance to disconnect from this game (never disconnect from any other game...) and last night I ran into a 4x jak and a 4x sweet tooth...I died once on accident and a little bit later disconnected from the match.
**bleep** off I just quit the game and told my friend I'd catch him later and got hate mail saying I was a pathetic noob for rage quitting...
