Possible Solution To Prevent "Quit" Games in "RS"

I agree with the dumb idea side.

You may as well just take the entire quit option away. Agree with let them take the L, get RS points deducted and move on

Op, it's not a bad idea. But you have some excellent players that disagree with you because they don't care about quality game play and just want to get to WS asap. You also have some terrible players who quit all the time and they also don't like your idea because it will affect them. I could be wrong but it's just my take.

Your probably not complaining about quitters who quit down 7 or more runs. Your probably complaining about the chumps who quit down a couple runs and yes, it's poor sportsmanship and I wouldn't mind seeing a stiffer penalty for those players.

But it's probably hard for them to implement and they probably won't do it. But again, I wouldn't mind seeing something implemented for excessive quits/disconnects.

Why? Games take upwards of 45 minutes, if someone doesn’t want to stick around and get their teeth kicked in for 45 minutes why do you people care so much if they quit?

They've implemented something for getting your teeth kicked in, it's called the mercy rule. I'm talking about guys who quit down 1,2, or 3 runs. I don't want to play 5 innings then have someone quit when I hit a home run and score first. That means I have to enter another game and I may not have another 45 minutes to spare. That's my beef with quitters.

So what you want is that these people that have already conceded that they will lose the match, they should instead prolong the game by letting you score a 10 run lead in order to get the mercy to kick in? What a fantastic solution lol.

Lol how should I understand your post then? Please explain.

what a stupid thread. absolute hot garbage

skep and thinkgr you guys have the patience of saints lol dont know how you do it and keep it going for so long with some of em

If you ban someone for 3 hours for quitting a game that they paid 60 dollars, many players will just stop playing the game. Really bad for business, they can get points taken off but not 3x as much that’s just absurd.

It's unfortunate and really sucks, but you need to deal with it.
