Why do people leave games when they're winning?

I just dont understand this at all and it has to be the most frustrating thing to be on a team of players that do this.  I was just in a game of raid and we had really good team chemistry and we got a nice big lead with in the 1st round.  Then at the start of the 2nd round, 3 of the players leave, leaving 3 of us behind and making the game a 3 vs 6 situation to which the enemy team comes back and beats us.

Why do they do this?  And I dont think any of them were going negative, so it cant be because of their stats going down.  So, why do they insist on leaving games they are winning? What is the logic of this?  I understand if you're losing pretty bad and you dont want to be a part of it any more, but what are they thinking when they're on the winning team? "Oh, I hate winning. I cant believe we're doing so well! I better leave before we get the victory!"

Ive never understood this at all. I can be negative by 10 kills and lagging like a mofo but there is no way I would win a game I am winning.

If I am in a game that just started and lag bad for a couple of minutes I will quit just to be fair to my team to have a chance to get someone else in there that can help.

Yeah it's very annoying. Sometimes they leave because they get timed out or just disconnected all together.  Sometimes even though they are winning they will be going negative and they will leave. Sometimes if there is something annoying going on in the game they will leave (that actually happened to me. I was throwing smoke throughout the game and one guy kept complaining that whoever was throwing smoke needed to stop because it was annoying. I didn't stop and eventually he just left and we were winning).

Some people have to leave due to real life guys.  Things come up. Your child is doing something they shouldn't be. Your gf or wife needs you. Think.

Exactly. The real life possibilities are infinite IMO. Just keep an open mind that it's pretty much impossible know exactly what may be happening at any given time with any given player. BO2 is still just a game vs real life.

Of course. Im just thinking more in terms of someone gets pissed because the got killed by some BS and rage quit even though they are winning. It happens quite a bit.

I'll be honest I don't pay enough attention players coming and going from matches, it's too much for brain to keep up with. LOL! It does seem weird that people would do that but it definitely doesn't surprise me too much.

The most anoying this is when you spawn traping the other team and the host dash boards and the game just ends

I can be on a nuclear streak, or any streak, but if somebody's camping with ghost and a target finder I'm out. It doesn't matter if we're winning by 100points, it doesn't matter if I'm 25-1. I'm not hanging around in a game of domination for somebody on the other team to be 3-25 with 0 caps and I'm one of their kills.
