This is a solution to all the rage quitters.

This is a solution to all the rage quitters.

Before I rant, I will start off by saying I have played every COD game online and I am considered to be well above average gamer, a king of pub stars if you will. Anyway read this if you want a solution, it may come off a bit too much for some people, but it would work. Also if you are going to post a comment about how stupid this would be, take a second to think if you're 15 and this is your second COD game ever. If that's true do me a favor, pass this thread by now and just keep looking for quick scoping videos. This is all IMO and I do believe this would help most, besides wanna be trolls.

They should de rank people for rage quiting. I'm sorry but if you leave a game I don't care what the reason is you should either get lowered a rank or have a good amount of already earned XP taken away. If you don't like it, don't back out. There are plenty of chances and time to back out during the match making process so do it then. I understand people get lag, but it's not every game. Lag isn't the main reason for people backing out, the reason usually is bad team mates. If you are playing against good kids that are just dominating you, you back out. It's only natural that people do that, but there is a simple solution that works for me every time. It works especially if you are playing by yourself and you get into a lobby with high prestigers or a clan or if they are all in a party chat and on the same team playing. That's your sign to back out. Don't let pride get in the way, I play with people who are good, we have randoms join running their mouth and halfway through the game they back out. I'm not saying everyone runs their mouth I'm just saying people back out when they are being destroyed.

If you start heavily punishing people for backing out such as de rank or lowering half of earned XP in a LVL then people will start staying in games. Me personally even if I get into a game and I am losing and having killstreaks called in on me I stay. I get XP, I manage to go positive and If I am going to get the lose I might as well get my match bonus and other XP as well.

If any one wants to add to this idea and or has a better one, comment.

yes derank them all if they disconnect due to network problems...i mean if people are so cheap to have a crappy internet connectioin and havent followed all the instructions to the letter on how to set your router properly they should be severly punished.

Well 3arc already gave them a lag advantage for having the bad kid connection so why not? LOL

If you have a bad connection that disconnects you every game you should probably get it checked out. If that was me I would be more worried about not being able to play a full match then being de ranked. Even if this happens a once every five games I would still get my connection checked out. If you have a bad connection you shouldn't even try playing COD or any other online games due to the lvl of frustration you will have. So complaing about being de ranked should be the least of your problems by then.

It's obvious your not that bright so I'll cut you some slack, go ahead and derank me, I play domination, my k/d sucks and I don't care in the least about rank. Blame treyarc not me scrub. As soon as this game is fixed I'll stick it out like I always have, but now I'm not going to stick in a game where bullets don't work....

i dont really see what the big deal is......people quit, than the game finds others to join back in...if they all quit and forfeit, than you get a W.

the only time i find quitting annoying is when the host quits and everybody in the game "loses connection to the host," making the game abruptly end.....but thats more of a CoD server problem.........

The game doesn't always find someone else to replace them nor even quick enough. There are times when people on team back out, and even though it is a quarter into the game, will not add people making the game uneven and lopsided. You can't always carry the slack for 1-3 people, let alone the whole team.

This will not stop rage quitters any more than any other system. Plus this has been suggested many times before and never was considered a valid method.

Rage quittes will quit no matter what punishment is given to them. There is no way to completely stop rage quitters ever.

Horrible idea. Considering the problems with connectiviy, this would a more hated idea then the probation system. I really couldnt care less because i dont quit many games, but to lose level because there servera diaconnect a game is almost insulting.

I believe the loss of match bonus is designed to discourage folks from quitting abruptly.  I have had to leave games I was dominating in as well as team winning due to family matters at that particular time.  For those that don't have those responsibilities, then I can see why you would think no one ever has a reason to leave. 

Now, are people raging out of a game where, on their screen they clearly had the jump on a player and put 10 slugs in his head, only to watch the kill cam (because they died instead) and notice that they didn't even raise their weapon before dying, then I can't blame those folks at all.  Lag doesn't allow for competitive play if you are on the wrong end.

Chill a bit and just enjoy the game.  All you have to worry about is what you do, not what others do.  People are coming and going out of games all the time.  That's the beauty of their current system.
