Would you reccommend the multiplayer?
My friend keeps bugging me to play but from what I've read here these sort of problems are throwing me off.
My instinct keeps telling me to stick to SP for now.
EDIT: I probly should have mentioned, that yes this is apparently common and occurs as a penalty whenever you "unrightfully" leave a game. However when lag-outs, Freezes, and host-leaves occur, it happens.
