People who bail early don't realize you can grind out a podium finish (or even a win if you're playing with +2 hazards). It's actually beneficial for the rest because it narrows the field and increases your chance at a podium (especially with 18H tourneys). I tend to play with characters that aren't maxed yet, so I always stick it out until the bitter end for the loyalty increase, however meager it may be at times. As for OT2, I haven't played online yet because the set up doesn't seem as intuitive as OOB's. I'll definitely try it sometime (with username, "Optimus").
