After playing this game to level 25 on the PS4 I have played a lot of multiplayer matches. While doing this there is nothing worse than playing a 5 v 5 match and having 1 player leave. Now this should get the remaining 4 characters more experience which gives them a better chance for a while. But as soon as the remaining 4 players cap out at level ten there is no where for them to go so the other team will eventually dominate them. This totally ruins the game especially when you have to finish the match before you can get into another one. The only choices therefore are to stay in the game and play even though you know you’ll lose or quit and go do something else for 5 min.
One simple way to fix this is to add a leaver percentage to the game. This is a system the Hero Of Newerth uses and I think it works well. Basically every time a player quits a game early it gets recorded and is used to calculate a percentage out of their total games played. If this percentage ever gets over a certain amount like 10% they get automatically get put in games with other leavers until the percentage drops. This helps give people a reason to stay even if they don’t do well in the first 5 minutes of the game.
Any thoughts on how you feel about the leaver situation would be awsome.
