Remove late-join

21 replies 66 views Edited Dec 11, 2011

I just joined a match in TDM that the score was 13-40... The whole other team was using FF3, FAL-SS, and having a circle jerk together... against players all under level 40 besides myself but I joined late so I couldn't do anything but I stuck the match out because as I've said before it the quiting threads: I only quit when I have a legitimate reason.

Removing late-join whilst keeping no-penalty-quits would S.U.C.K big time!

 

Either modify late-joins so you cannot late-join a game that is pretty much decided, almost over or w/e AND/OR

punish quitting players (punish = the stats will still be recorded; + 10mins timout or whatnot) BUT DON'T

remove late-joins without doint the latter first, please!

I'd prefer it completely scrapped.

The less people that are in the game, the less lag there is. I'm sure you all want this.

Plus, you just get dumped into games that are nearly over and you are losing. Not fun. Whenever I find all the people to fill a game completely, I back out to avoid a late join. Silly.

No it didn't, it would turn into hide and seek once too many players on the other team quit and the match would take 15 minutes. I'm glad they added late join, it keeps the action going.

 

Maybe they should just change the max point total for either team to 30 instead of 40 when late joining.

It's a necessary evil, I'm afraid.

 

Either we have matches where the whole other team quits/only 1-2 players remain and it becomes a tedious game of hide and seek (which happened countless times on UC2), or we have situations like you described.

 

If they could just put a simple "Do you want to join a game in progress?" option in, it would be extremely appreciated.

True. IMO, there should be no late join in FFA. The games end in no more than 5 minutes, anyway.

Be thankful for the late-join in plunder and objective mode. Otherwise, you will lose without much support anyway.
