    Exclamation Quake Live Anti-Quitter idea

    You should do this - When someone quits midgame he can't join any games even training match until the game which he quitted ends. Please add it because its annoying.

    [edit : only for CA/CTF/TDM/A&D/etcTeamgames.]

    So yeah, I start a ctf game and in first minute of playing my connection breaks and I drop out of server. 30 seconds later my conn is back but NO!! Let's wait 30 minutes to play again. Brilliant!!!!

    EDIT: OP quits 26% of his games.

    Well for black ops 2 it's 5 quits, and you get banned for 5 minutes not untill the game ends. But I don't really care which games use it, I just need it.

    Well, when your connection breaks and you timeout it will let you join again, but if you timeout more than 10 more times you will have to wait because you could just restart your PC from the ON/OFF button.

    That`s why team game types should be played with your friends or at least with people who you know well enough - otherwise it`s disappointing result in ~80% of games...
    I`m back in quake after very long break.....

    QL counts connection timeout same as quit, unless you somehow manage to rejoin and resume the game before your spot gets taken. I'd still love to hear the reason why is "punish the quitters" so needed when you yourself quit 26% of your games.

    ..... You scored 4 quits in a row today. All in CA. Total duration of those games is roughly 110 minutes. So, you should have been locked out of any games for 110 minutes, and that's only today. You still think it's a good idea?

    im all for quiters being punished 5 min ban or whatever good idea.. but better idea 30 mins or so ... allow option for person to reconnect to the game if timeout... for them not to be punished...

    Quitters ruin pub games and the vast majority of quits are due to people going 1 or 2:0 down early on. Rather than stick it out and try to make a game of it, they take the easy route out and look for another game that they can win. It's pretty pathetic.

    Why start a game if you don't mean to finish it ?

    OP's idea has merit. reconnect would let you back in if you really did have some sort of connection issue.
