Bad idea. Then no one will join late meaning rage-quitters would not get replaced
Naughtydog, you must bring back Charlie Cutter in Uncharted 4.

@tap I totally agree. Make it worth staying for.

How about you only get a loss if you quit. Stick around and get no loss no matter the outcome. Plus the other rewards you mentioned for staying in a likely lopsided loss.

I would be much more interested in an option to turn off the stats of statistical headgear. Then I could wear the cool loking hats on my favorite skins without worrying about the dumb stats

WOW.
You know because rewarding someone for losing totally defeats the point of COMPETITIVE multiplayer. Anyways everyone would try to lose so they could get a rare treasure. The uncharted community would become people wanting to lose and noobs being the best players

Tell that to ND. They implemented a welfare system Powerplays and they also give you a miniscule cash bonus if you lose (around $2000). Who said that UC3 MP is Competitive? It's a casual game.

Do you have any better ideas to offer? At least I'm trying to think out of the box. Instead of "ZOMG ND WE NEED A LATE JOIN TOGGLE NAOOOOO!!!!!!111oneone" I am trying to be productive and make late joining a pleasant experience for everyone. There's nothing wrong with that in my book.

Btw, do you realize that more people would be willing to play solo if ND implemented more rewards for late joiners? Less parties of 5 -> less frustration for lone wolfs. Try to see the big picture.

You guys do know that all you have to do is set a tournament ticket right after you search for a game and it will automatically put you in a fresh unstarted match.You just deactivate the ticket before the voting starts.Thought everyone knew this by now Cat Indifferent

I'm surprised nobody mentioned the old trick. Just go into profile. If it suddenly backs you out with a bunch of players found, leave quickly. Or party up. Even with a party of 2, it won't let you late join. Tip 1 is sure fire though.

worse game in progress join? TDM. 45-8. When I joined we made a comeback and won the game. Not. We still lost badly.

See you in Uncharted 4!
