WHY DO PEOPLE QUIT GAMES?

I really honestly don't understand as to why people quit games? Lag I can understand, but in the last minute when they are loosing half the team quits? Do you not want your match XP? I can not understand why you would leave early, get a loss anyway and loose all your hard work?

 

Can you guys explain why you leave games in such a fashion...

 

At least 3/4 of the games this happens.

 

I've also noticed people leaving when stealth bombers come in...

 

Such a pathetic and selfish thing to do.

    The Stealth bombers I can understand. Either it was a piece of trash gamer running Support, and being deeply negative, or someone camping as I have seen, running Support

      I've gotten a MOAB and the other team left leaving me 2 people. I was host so I didnt have to worry about the migration.

    Simply because they forget it's a video game

  • Re: WHY DO PEOPLE QUIT GAMES?

    People quit because there is no penalty against quitting. I've been in favor of temporary 1 hour bans for quitting too often.

  • Re: WHY DO PEOPLE QUIT GAMES?

    People mostly leave cuz they are tired of getting owned by lag compensation and not by the players who are under the illussion that they are beast .. Last time I stated this, I was banned .. It will be interesting to see if it occurs again .. I'm already feeling the hatred from above - that would be the forum mods - not that I care, if they going to hate anyone, might as well be me

    • Re: WHY DO PEOPLE QUIT GAMES?

      I know how you feel. i'm hit hard by the lag comp. there are time when i'm killed and i didn't see any body but the kill cam shows them right in front of me. or i'll let off 5-7 shots, they kill me with one shot,  the kill cam shows me not getting a shot off and they got off 4 for the kill.

    Host lag, the only reason I ever leave a game. I have to find games that are mid way through otherwise I get host and the game is unplayable. I don't care if I join a losing team, **** happens but getting host is so frustrating. I have to quit every third game on average just so I can get into a playable lobby. If I play with my clan I suffer even more. All I want to do is play the figgin game but it seems to want to punish those who can afford a great Internet connection. Bring on Blops2

    I have rage quit once when a MOAB was called as i was 16-0 and was 1 off my osprey.

    I think why should i die when i have played good all game and have not been killed by an enemy. What did i do wrong to stop me getting my osprey? Yet some guy who is on a 25KS gets to kill me, even though he didnt manage to do it directly during the game.

  • Re: WHY DO PEOPLE QUIT GAMES?

    I like when your whole team decides to back out just as the game starts. So it leaves you and one other person to take on 6 people (TDM). Thats always a good time. Camp it out, make them come to you, hear them whine like babies when they die.

      They'll say because they were host blah blah blah, because of the lag, or because of the team mates, or because they had to answer a phonecall!..

       

      It's just because they were being killed a lot! Just that!

    • Re: WHY DO PEOPLE QUIT GAMES?

      I remember a game a while back .. Host on our side quit and took the rest of the our team with them .. That left me agaisn't 5 other guys .. After about 3 minutes, it was still me agaisn't those 5 other guys .. I guess the game must have thought I was good because it didn't bring any new players in on my team .. But, I'm not that good so I quit .. I get a whack of messages shortly after complaining about me leaving and the other team got kicked .. Turns out I was host .. Moral of this story, I'm not gonna let myself get dominated so other players can get good scores ..

    if i'm the only one playing the objectives while the rest of the team is farm killing i quit. if the game is lagging so bad where it looks like people are skipping arouind the map i quit.

    I think that quitting out of a game should impose a 2 minute penalty for entering a new game.

     

    This way anyway with legitimate reasons like phonecall, etc. would not have a problem with the delay but people who intend to hop back in immediately are impeded and therefore discouraged from quitting out of games.

     

    Their "bad" habits would be "trained" out and people would only ever quit when something in their real world comes up, often finishing their entire session for that time.

     

    In summary, any quit should give no XP, automatic loss, 2 minute delay for next game.

    I quit under two conditions:

    Horrible lag which makes the game unplayable
    Getting spawn killed 3+ times in row/Spawn trapped

     

    I've also been known to bail when someone gets a MOAB in 2min of gameplay. Obvious boosters, they don't deserve my death. That's only happened once

    - Lag(dis)vantage

    - Unfair matchbalancing (happens constantly, helped by split screeners of course)

    - Host stuttering (hosting especially 3/2 bar players sucks in this game, makes sense being out of sync of the game you're hosting)

    - Saying it again F@g screeners

    - Final stand & Dead man’s hand

    - None objective players

    - Commando lunge & end of a high specialist streak

                                                    

    I rarely leave a game I started but sometimes I will as this game is full with nonsense

     

    I would be in favor of deranking people who quit a game they started if there were no split screeners and hosting didn’t suck and thus people do not lag on purpose to get an advantage, rather they try to optimize their nets (playing wired and on an open nat) to get better hit register.

  • Re: WHY DO PEOPLE QUIT GAMES?

    I will quit due to Lag, or getting thrown into a game on a side thats losing by more than 2000 (in tdm) or there is suspicious activity, (boosters, lag switchers, etc) or when i'm thrown into a game thats just abut to end.

     

    Its a game for gods sake its not real. I don't care when someone else quits as the majority of times it goes to host migration and the game starts again. No biggy really, especially when there are so many other things wrong with the game.

     

    If the devs fixed the major problems instead of spending their time putting in new game modes, the quitting would be less noticeable.

    It kinda shows the mentality and age of a lot of players, that they are all so happy about new game modes. When the existing problems are the same or worse. Can't they see its all a smoke screen designed to try and placate the masses!! Instead of dealing with the problems.

  • Re: WHY DO PEOPLE QUIT GAMES?

    1. Lag, when I'm on a 2-3 bar and everyone's on four and I die before I see the guy.

    2. Campers

    3. People that are like, 'Yeah buddy! Step into that corridor, go on, go on! -he dies- Oh great! Poof, you're gone. In these games I usually go like 20-19 or something because it keeps happening, I even run assassin and silencer, they just follow someone so they die and they can get the kill and "avenge" them.

    3.1. Type 95 and MK14.

    4. When I get into a kill confirmed game thats going 7/52 and there's the Death Star shooting at us like little ants.

     

    I only enjoy MW3 when people are moving around (not recklessly) with lots of gunfights. Doesn't matter if I die alot, its just how I like to play.

  • Re: WHY DO PEOPLE QUIT GAMES?

    Interesting. Thanks everyone.

     

    Once again I can totally understand people leaving for lag reasons.

     

    But from what some of you guys wrote you are admitting to leaving because someone uses a weapon you don't know how to counter or because someone is camping or using Final Stand or DMH.

     

    This is gutless behaviour. Not only do you loose your xp but you potentially ruin the game for everyone playing legit. We shouldn't have to be punished because you are **** at COD.

     

    I am all for RobbieRocket's 2 min ban. Maybe even make it 5 min. Just like life there should be an equal and opposite reaction to this rage quittting.

    People back out at the end so their win streak does not get impacted, it will still count as a loss in the barracks, but the win streak will remain intact. Another chicken sh!t way of stat manipulation if you ask me.

     

    I used to get upset when people would leave both on my squad or the opposing team until I started remembering being on the bad end of lag is just awful and having many of those same issues myself at times I actually understand the frustration that some may have had when playing.

     

    Most of the games I quit is when I am thrown into a mid match slaughter where I start off down by 70+ in dom and triple capped etc. I just back out immediatley. If I am playing with my clan and I draw host or am on major lag I will just camp it out and stick with the game.
