We're not talking about TK kick-outs here, btw. Like, actual game removals for no reason.

Also, your idea would suck unless you never experienced the ND-approved No-Reason-Kick (patent pending).

Look, I know that my idea may not be the smartest and most fool proof idea but Im sure that for Uncharted 4 it can be expanded upon. The removal of stats might make many players get bored of the game quickly, not because they can't noobstomp in parties but because of the leaderboards many players (Including myself) try to set goals for themselves. 

 

Many times I have said that "Ok Im going to try and get to this position on the leaderboard, today I want to beat this person on the win leaderboard". Coop players like I have said before are probably proud of how many crushings and hards they have beaten. 

If you think something is impossible, you’ll make it impossible.

Mabye, but only maaaybe it has something to do that Uncharted never had a proper mercenary playlist.

 

I could be wrong and my 1ooo+ quits only became of my stats and NOT because the game is pile of **bleep** if playing as lonewolf.

 

This whole thing getting really really old guys.

 

 

 

 

 

A multiplayer is supposed to feel the same as the game before it. You made that mistake with Uc3 but it was manageable. Now with Uc4 this is just ridiculous.

Anyway, game's pretty old, so the fix would be on the next game anyway.


As long as we don't do quit penalties. The game's bad enough as it is, so why punish players who get the kickglitch with even more BS to deal with.

I don't know how you can really fix this, seeing as how even if ND does manage to fix all the ways of quitting out of the pre-lobby if someone wanted to quit badly, they can always rely on sign-out,pulling out cord, or quitting the game...

 

You can't blame ND on this one, as it is the players caring too much about their stats or not wanting a challenge.


sure you can, people are **bleep**, and as a developer you should prevent the **bleep** from being **bleep**, so what they can do:

- have no leaderboards and statistics, like in the Uncharted 2 good old days

- give a loss and a few deaths as a penalty for quitting, now when you quit before voting you don't even get a loss, just give those guys a loss and 5 deaths for free, that would teach them (of course this would be annoying when getting kicked out of matches, party splitted or spinning ring, but whatever, you shouldn't care about statistics)

 

I think the statistics on your profile are the biggest problem, because you didn't have those in Uncharted 2, and I did not see anyone quit in UC2 before the match started, well, maybe also a reason is that Uncharted 3 is meant to attract the CoD-crowd, so we have 10 year old kids now that quit for their statistics...

^ I'm fine with the quit penalties here.

I mean, jesus, if I get kicked out for no reason, the last thing I'd want is to have to wait for x minutes because **bleep** me.

This game isn't getting another patch. FACT. All the problems it has and any future problems just have to be dealt with by getting a gallon of ice cream and eating till you hate yourself more than the game.

Re: The pre-lobby quitting is out of control.

Honestly, the only reason someone should get punished in-game is for using any form of glitch that gives them an unfair advantage.

 

Anything else is fair game, whether it's using the UBER HAX0R cheap weapons, to pubstomping in a party, to quitting in a lobby... You really shouldn't get punished since that's is how the  person chooses to play, I mean would I care if the penalty is given, not likely, but it will add up considering the amount of times I quit before game or at the very beginning. With things like school, invites, real life stuffz , getting kicked, etc. it will be unfair quite a bit. Quitting is entirely up to the player(well besides the random disconnects) and there upon not ND's responsibility to punish them for simply...quitting the game.

 

I will agree on that, they do need to fix matchmaking quite a bit. Here's to hoping they have this settled in TLOU MP and later on in the UC4 MP that may come. If the matchmaking is fixed and has properly balanced teams, then people may quit waaay less unless they have a legit reason in doing so.

Oh, I'm just leaving. -Best Uncharted character ever
