Personally, even if my team is losing I wouldn’t initiate a surrender or vote yes if it’s a fun match (which most are!)
I think I’ve only voted yes once and initiated a surrender once and that was because in both of those matches we were getting absolutely demolished and it just wasn’t enjoyable when galiliea and miko could 2v5 us with their marquis cheesing our sentry (incursion-overgrowth).
Having the option to surrender is healthy for the game so I’m glad that GBX added it. The main complaints that I’ve seen about it are the fact that the community loves to initiate surrenders when the game isn’t completely lost yet. Which, out of my 56(I think) matches in pvp I’ve only had 1 or maybe 2 matches where my team surrendered prematurely (I play on PS4, maybe it’s less pervasive there?)
