Just got quit out on by Wistler (again) so I thought that maybe it would be nice if this client had a feature to prevent people who get fed up and quit a game because they losing, ruining the fun for everyone.

Not really sure what it would be, since you can't stop people Alt+F4-ing, but maybe if there was a count of the number of times someone has quit out, so people can see whether they are likely to have a good game, or a short one ruined by someone quitting.

Obviously this would sorta punish people who genuinely crash or lag out. However, perhaps a count would be good, as you can tell how likely they will crash out, too.

I don't know if it is possible. Just an idea, but it's something I'd like to see in the client, so I thought I would post it.

That feature would be great but it will be difficult as warg said to work. The problem with this is that if someone who's not quiting just because they are losing but needs to go to etc. That will disable them to quit the game. But it don't think you can stop player quitting except in the game, they can 1/. shut down their pc 2/. force quit the game 3/. quit the matchmaker. Also the player(s) that quit with lose points anyway the remaining players get points so if they to lose points just keep quitting games but if you want to win points play until the end.

Hey we did look at his post.. It is possible though. The way i thought it can work is that you can select and option on the host panal to enable/ disable you from quiting the game just like turning the cheats on/off. But as warg said it will difficult to make it work but is possible.

Yea...idea was to count number of times quit, not stop them lol :p (not that stopping them isn't a good idea...it's just impossible)

Well if your talking about making a count of how many times as quit like the way you can tell how many loses/wins a player has. I'm sure warg do that if he can be bothered to. but by the way if play alot of players like I have then you find out if a player quits or not. This is common in new players because they don't know that quiting is bad.

warg didn't program the mm, koen did. and this feature is intedted to PREVENT people from quitting, as in teach them that it is a bad thing and to warn others if they're playing against a chronic quitter
