It’d be difficult to believe that you were never in a situation like this: You’re playing a match of nearly any game and your team’s performance isn’t the best. You can probably come back from it, but there’s at least one person getting upset. They decide to say a rude remark and leave, putting your team at a disadvantage in numbers and allowing them to play another match or even without any penalty for abandonment! This leads us to our latest point of discussion…
How should Planet of Heroes handle players disconnecting from games?
To be more precise, we want to know what your ideas are regarding players leaving the game, players losing connection, and if any penalties should be applied. For example, allowing or even forcing players to reconnect back to the same game if they leave is a method used by some MOBAs. We're aiming to provide a great solution to parts of this issue by replacing the disconnected player with an AI, a computer controlled unit until the player comes back. But what if someone rage quits? What should happen to them?
Keep this line of thought in your head and let us know what you think!
