Man, I've been playing this game since 2006 when coh 1 just launched, whenever someone starts whining about droppers and matchmaking in coh 2 I know it's a simpleton who is used to the modern "MOBA" netplay where you just click and play asap, but people whine even more and are also used to have the luxury of denouncing people to admins(sometimes even getting somebody punished under false claims).
You know how netplay was back then? You had to queue in or dig for a long time before playing, people could even judge you because you played on low settings as your rig performance was displayed for the sake of knowing who was likely to drop, and even then drops occured.
Yea, I also played CoH1 back in 2006. I've got my old box somewhere with the 6 CDs and everything. I'm well aware of how MP worked - and if you repeatedly left (or DC'd) matches back then, you'd just get kicked from future lobbies when you joined. The same thing would happen in even older games, like Rise of Nations, Age of Mythology, etc. Joining games, only to ruin them by leaving a few minutes in (either intentionally or not) wasted everyone's time, and gave that person a bad reputation.
Now you have randomly selected players based on their ELO ranking(whenever possible) and faster match making, still with the option of inviting your friends, you can hop in, click search and play in just 1 minute, and you still complain?
I can never understand why some people go nuts and heat up their nerves for some random dude they will probably not see again in their game.
Tldr: Get over it, keep playing and have fun.
Yes, I will complain. Wasting 5 minutes is wasting 5 minutes. I can understand if someone crashes, or needs to leave once
; but this is about OPs problem where a person is leaving 10 games in a row
. Even if it's not intentional (it almost certainly is, in hopes of lowering their ELO), it's still incredibly inconsiderate.
Even comparatively, other games with skill-based match making almost always have "leaver penalties" to prevent this exact thing. It's usually no penalty for the first leave (in a period of time), and then increasingly long periods of match-making bans (10 minutes, 30 minutes, hours, etc.). That's all I'm asking for.
