sorry to repost again i've seen SOOO many threads about this i know, but i was wondering if there has been any developer response to this at all? i havnt seen anything in the dev trackers not sure if this is just a problem for the bastion server or if it is going on in all the servers? Not sure if this is working as intended or maybe its just me qq'ing about it because i find it annoying.

Just curious what can be done about it because i think if they put a major debuff of some sort on the leaver then who will que for the next warzone? we have to wait for a warzone as is ,not on peak hours, so maybe a buff to people to who stay the whole match maybe? But that could lead to afking again in warzones which is just as bad if not worse.

Any new ideas or maybe i could just suck it up and qq to myself I just find it a little annoying and i can't get geared very steadily because of the constant loses.. thanks for your time and as always flame on

Sadly there is nothing that can be done. If they implemented any type of debuff, the leavers would simply just sit at a node and go AFK. By the same token, I don't disagree with leaving WZ's, as sometimes you get peeps who completely ignore objectives, and make it miserable for those trying to win. The coin indeed has 2 sides. Either way, I don't see any change to the mechanics that would curb the issue, it's just one of those things.

The only reply is that they made 1.4 back fill warzone when player leave faster so you will always have more player's replaced then one's that leave.

There should be a punishment for leaving.

Players that always leave if its not going their way are the people complaining at 50 that pvp is too hard blah blah gear too big a factor.

Gear is a lot smaller factor than knowing how to play, not ever battleground is going to go your way even if you're in a pre-made.

I mainly agree with this. I would think a debuff would cause more harm than good.

To be honest sometimes my graphics card does a nose dive when I get in a WZ. I'd hate to get punished cause i had to reboot.

Kaylee: Well, how can we be sure, u-unless we question it?

Hey everyone! I talked to Senior PvP Designer Rob Hinkle about the issue of players leaving normal Warzones. This is something that's important to us, and if we introduce any changes to the system, we want to make sure we do it right. To that end, we're considering several options, like applying the deserter debuff we have for Ranked (or another penalty for leaving) or the possibility of additional incentives to stay in the Warzone. We'll keep you updated on any changes and appreciate your feedback!

Incentives to stay in the WZ would be preferred.

We don't need any more reasons not to queue.
