Suggestion for leavers solution

If it happens in FFA, the player is disabled (their line does not appear at all and players don't get points for them (because if somebody leaves the ones in lead have adventage, since they are always getting at least one point)
If it happens in Team game the short handed team has the option to terminate game as long as they are not losing by more than 2, and the leading team doesn't have 5 or more points (game is about 50% done at 5 points for 1 team), terminating the game does not earn them coins, but ranking deduction is halved or there is no deduction, whichever you think works better, while winning team earns ranking (full or half, I don't know exactly how ranking system works)

Another solution for team games would be that game turns off controls for last of the other team, and next game for 2nd from the back, and then last, and so on.... I don't like this solution because I like to play game, and not wait because somebody who doesn't care about game left...

For FFA, it would be a mess with the points to calculate if the players don't get points for afk players. If the first to 70 wins, what do we do next with a leaver? First to 60? Overall, the leaders would be even more advantaged. Moreover, using afk players is actually a bit strategic, you can use them as new walls, and they even may kill players. (Example here.)

Besides, it's already hard to play with a leaver since the radio space/player gets higher and then the game turns into camping fights: it's already the case with an afk, it would get even worse with a "disabled" player.

 

I'm not sure how your solution for teamgames works, but just this:

Quote:

ranking deduction is halved or there is no deduction, whichever you think works better, while winning team earns ranking

=> free rank, people will eventually play teamgames and win by turns. Win +20, lose -10, win +20, lose -10..

 

As for this

Hello.

If all hosts of rooms don`t let 2nd accaunts to play and will kick them there will be no leavers. In some cases players lost connection and leave the game but most often leavers are players logged in with 2nd accaunt and they don`t care loose they rank or not.

We do first to 70, not reducing it because of leavers, I know, I also use it for strategic reasons, it defends one side of my camp while I take care of the other, I don't like camping battles, but it usually happens, the higher rank, more camping, it looks like that to me...
Maybe winning when other team withdraws should earn half points than you would have, and loosing decreases half points, of course, the conditions from first post apply, that way ranking system is balanced.
About that link to post you gave me, I know, I read it, that is why I would only disable last and second from last, best players would always play (except in 2vs2, but it would be boring for player waiting the whole time)
