I hate when this happens. Like someone said above, add in a Reinforcement medal that gives like 20-30 comms. It's not much, but it's something to compensate for getting into a dead WZ.

anyway, how much would you like to be rewarded for joining a WZ that ends right after you enter?
When you are in a PvE queue you can pve while you wait.

When you are in a pvp queue you cant pvp while you wait because the wpvp is nonexistant.

Something like a flat 10 comms bonus for backfilling, awarded at the end of the WZ, would be great. Nice little reward, but not so great it would make people quit and requeue in the hope of getting it.
I support this idea. I don't rage quit and I don't mind backfilling. On my Sorc, it's easy to get one medal for healing, but not every class has that ability. I joined a Civil War match last night after the other side had gotten a triple cap. It was hard to get that one medal in time! On other occasions, I've backfilled with not enough time to get that one medal.

Backfillers should get a small base reward for sticking it out.

Just add the option to queue for new WZ games only.

Yes... because so many people will be jumping on the option to "queue for war zones in progress". I'm sure any disconnects or leavers will get backfilled immediately with all the people jumping at the opportunity to join a Huttball match at the 6 minute mark.

Not trying to be completely rude... but that's a really horrible idea.

And after all that compelling reasoning for why it is such a horrible idea, who could disagree...

I think it only has happened twice that I zoned into a warzone in progress that my team actually was winning. Most disconnects have to be from people living in the outback on a satellite connection or people too chicken to press the leave warzone button. Neither of these players are going to make a difference anyway and you would have won without them. If people leave in droves there is a reason for it. Just let that match end prematurely. But what do I know. I'm a pro-quitter thanks to that inspiring thread a few months ago.
