Add a single player legend, Stalker, that is able to stun and take out enemies without them being able to ping a warning to teammates. And give him access to a high power sniper rifle able to take out any enemy with 3 shots.
If a player is abandoned by teammates leaving the game, he/she should be given the option of Stalker qualities.
I agree with this, although there should at least be punishment for quitting before your feet hit the ground so that at least it will hinder people dropping out early, no one likes their time wasted with resorting to a two-player squad. That way there is little excuse to quitting prematurely. Maybe there can be a threshold before punishment where, say, if you quit prematurely 10 times in the space of 1 hour then you get like a five-minute minute ban (possibly with a bunch of warnings beforehand so at least they were warned). There could possibly be a minor guilt system where your teammate is tagged for leaving too many games, that way it isn't EA that decides completely but rather its a preemptive tag that belittles annoying players who leave early way too often. I feel like a best way to know what people want is to send out a quick survey to see where the gamers are at on this issue.
no penalty , hell no . i usually leave during the game when there are idiots in team who rush so hard and then call for help when knocked down , and surrounded by enemies. so its better leave instead of wasting time with those who dont know team work.
I agree that its not fair to have to go into 2v3 or 1v3 all of the time, but they couldn't implement that just yet because of a simple reason. Crashing. Many people are still getting crashes that have to do with their game and not their internet. I used to crash every second game up until last patch, but now i don't at all. But i know that some people are still getting crashes, like some of my friends. So if a leaving penalty mechanic is ever implemented it would have to be in later stages of the game when all or the majority of the crash problems are fixed.

I just play this game for a few days. Many times I ended up playing alone or with only one team member. Players with high kill count bail as soon as they notice their team mates lower kill or win counts. Some players can't stand if they don't get their legend. Some even leave if the jump master does not land on their suggested spot.
As a negative solution, I would also recommend a 5-minute "recreation" time for players, who bail out prior the first two minutes after landing. This certainly helps conditioning players to stay.
For a positive solution, make a solo mode for players who prefer to play alone or are not able to team up with others.
I too vote for a 5-minute rejoin delay in team mode.

Since this game has a big quitter problem right now, the introduction of an automattic, escalating penalty system is a must; the game being F2P does not hinder this at all, League of Legends is also F2P and has also a penalty system in place. And since some champions and skins are behind a grind/paywall, it will be quite useful as well.
It should start with a 10 minute block for joining the next match, then 30 minutes, 1 hour, 4 hours, 1 day, 3 days or something like that; including a XP penalty as well, which only goes away after playing X games without leaving.
