GBX is there anyway to fix it so when a player quits or DCs that a new player can join in the game? It really sucks when your down 4 players against 5 out of the gate, and you know your likely going to lose… and lose bad. If allowing new players to jump in is not an option here are some other ideas:
Minor Boosts to health and/or DPS of the team down player(s). This has to be careful as to not break things further.
Respawn timers for the low manned team are decreased so their can make up for their lack of numbers by being able to recover from death quicker.
Minions of handicapped team boosted (if boosts to players is too risky).
I have had several games with my team down a player, and it feels like its too common of a problem to just ignore completely.
