Maybe it’s my innately terrible luck, but with the addition of Public Advanced Story Mode, I’ve continually run into a slew of players who purposely and repeatedly toss themselves over the edge of a map and respawn before anyone can revive them, essentially depleting the teams extra lives, then leaving the game.
What makes this irksome is the lack of anyway to prevent/stop players from doing it. There is no kick mechanic aside from the inactivity kick, and there is no punishment for said actions. So what do I propose? I’ve a few ideas, none of which I sincerely believe will solve this problem:
-Introduce a kick mechanic, with 50% player agreement needed to kick (because the player in question will not be able to vote for themselves)
-Introduce a “flagging” or report system, to catch “repeat offenders.” After being flagged, they:
-Are matched with others who’ve been flagged similarly AND/OR
-Have a visible flag icon to show they’ve been naughty recently (as a sort of heads up) until they’ve completed several games of any kind without being flagged AND/OR
-Timeout of 10-15 minutes after being repeatedly flagged, with increasing timeout lengths for each consecutive flag thereafter
I hate to even have this as a topic but if I can’t enjoy PvE for trolls, I feel something ought to be done. I could play PvP, sure, but that doesn’t solve issue, it only delays it.
