Solution for players leaving mid-game?

10 replies 283 views Edited Jan 19, 2013

Often when I play team modes in the beta, somebody will leave during the game. Since teams can only be up to 4 players each, one missing player is a serious disadvantage. Is it possible for players to join a match mid-game? If not, is it possible to replace a lost player with a bot? Something needs to be done to keep teams balanced.

@iamsochill I Agree, Those **bleep** Need To Be Made An Example Of !

 

Maybe If A Teammate Leaves Either In The Beggining, Middle, Or Near The End Then Just Grant That Team With The Fewer Players 50% Magic ?

 

And Yes 3 vs. 4 Is A Big Difference, Unless Player 4 On The Other Team Is A Noob ! .Lol

 

And Joining Mid-Match Is Fine As Well As Long As They Aren't Noobs .Lol

 

I Was Kidding About The Noob Part . ; )

Perhaps double points? Or some kind of point increase.

People joining mid-game is needed. I don't get why it isn't an option in the beta. Hopefully in the full game.

I'm sure final version will have some kind of answer to this problem...as of now, I tend to try harder to win when my team is low on players lol So makes it interesting sometimes, although frustrating too.

This would make perfect sense for team games, too. Joining a team game mid-game gives you no disadvantage. The only disadvantage woud come to you joining Favor of the Gods because you start with a lower score. However, Favor of the Gods is just fine when a player leaves.

Something also needs to be done about the players who are part of the match but do nothing. For example, they just stand there at the zip line and never join the battle. This is just as bad if not worse than those leaving the match.

Are you reffering to inactivity? I think players should be booted after 3 minutes of inactivity. 5 minutes seems like too much, especially in Team Favor, and 1-2 seems much too short.

Yes my good sir! These players are worse in my opinion. And it happens too much. Seems like they want the XP, but don't want to work for it.

Tell me about it. But I agree, it needs to be dealt with for the final version of the game. I've gotten kicked for inactivity before, I forgot to leave the lobby, hahaha. I think I was booted after a full game though, which is clearly not acceptable. I felt bad for my teammates, if they even noticed, that is.
