Thoughts on an option in game NOT to join matches that are already in progress?

I find it hard to get into a match when I join it halfway through to find the team I am on is losing ridiculously badly.

I almost always exit back to the menu and try again.

Not to mention just appearing in a random spawn almost always near an enemy and getting shot.

I'm not worried about the loss on my record. I just find it disheartening and a waste of time.

What's the alternative? Playing in a losing game?

There is no other choice, unfortunately.

That word I crossed should be removed from your vocab, using that word to describe a losing situation in a video game is wrong.

I agree. I'd like to be able to set my options to avoid being shoved into a match where one team is getting obliterated and half the people have quit. Especially in modes like Domination, when you get put in a match where the score is 178-50, there's a lodestar circling, and you have to spend between 2 and 4 minutes running around doing basically nothing.

we cant have this option .

lets say im in a game and my team backs out its 6v1 and no one joins.

league play does this and i hate it iv played about 15-20 league play games and all but 5 my whole team left.

the cons by far out weight the pros.

Exactly this.  If you make this an option, then everyone save for absolute noobs who aren't aware of the option will choose it.  You'd never finish another match with a full lobby again.

There is already a timeout penalty for leaving multiple matches. They could just strengthen it.
