Quite often I see people disconnecting when they die,I always try to rescue my team mates, sometimes you even kill the whole enemy squad but now you have to play the rest of the game with 1 or 2 fewer team mates simply because they disconnected as soon as they died, this game need a serious time punishment to keep people in (if you disconnect you cannot start a new game in less than 10 minutes for example), so people stay and gives you the opportunity to always have a full squad.
Yeah I figured out that too, if you find someone to play with it is much less likely to happen
You can always join our Apex Legends Community Discord
The community is quite new, but im sure youll find someone to play with
NO no time punishments....... it is no ranked and that would make alot of people quit playing and i mean ALOT.
As much as I hate when my random teammate solo drops ASAP, fights, dies, then leaves; I don't think we can do a whole lot except wait on solo or duos so our squad size matches our friends' size. The gunplay is smooth and fun, which makes people play hyper aggressive. A LOT of people love the early drop and fight. They don't want to wait on respawn and find gear all over again. Yeah, it screws us over, but some people just want to shoot each other. Start match, blast everything moving until you're dead, restart. It sucks for us less aggressive players, but I just don't see how we can properly implement a system to punish them.
in this case you are playing without them anyway...even if what you say is true (and I doubt it) I don´t see the problem of having the people who disconnects quitting the game,that just look like a plus to me, they make the game harder to win for the ones who remain, making it less enjoyable and wasting a full game just because they don´t want to wait 2 minutes to be resurrected, this is part of the game mechanics, it was´t planned to have people happily leaving to join a new game.
do you have any idea how many of us crash becouse this game was bad and is bad? they still dont have a fix for pc crashing issues yet , if they added a time block i would have hours allready id delete the game and so would alot of other players , how about you learn to be understanding of others situations weather its mental or software and deal with it huh? but that requires actual effort on your part.
Hi Apex Family,
I think a good solution for this issue of teammates leaving prematurely would be to put in a new "ping" command that would inform the downed player that his or her teammates are coming to save them and to please not leave.
Example: The teammates still alive can ping the downed teammates coffin and the downed teammate would hear a voice that says "Your teammates are coming to save you please stand by until the timer is completely gone."
I think between this suggested feature and players remembering to send friend requests to any good teammates they meet randomly will help with this issue greatly.
I've been in games like this myself and can relate. Frustrating! I'm not sure if the developers want to implement anything that makes players feel "punished" for leaving the game if the option is available. There is currently an incentive of 5% bonus to survival time XP while joining games with friend(s), so definitely take advantage of that when you can by friend requesting players you enjoyed playing with.
We have a Friend A Squad board for those looking to group up with others too. Check it out!
Are there any suggestions you have in mind for encouraging players to stay alive to be revived/dropped back in aside from giving them temporary cooldowns before joining their next game?
