You are trolling. You are demanding that other players be forced to conform to people that lack skill. If the game didn't push a "win the warzone" mentality, the problem may or may not go away.

A punishment will be answered in kind. If you bads find a way to convince bioware to reward your poor playing with punishing players like me who enter intending to compete to win, I'll restrict myself to my nightly premades, and in the morning when I'm forced to play with you bads, I'll happily find a corner to sit in and press the space bar every minute and a half while I sip my coffee and read your QQ about the problem you created. Vote out makes no difference either. The chances of you replacing me with a player in poor gear are much higher than the chances of you replacing me with a player in equal gear. Meanwhile you bads will continue to lose, and you'll cause the good players to only play premades.

Whatever floats your boat, bad. Trolls and crybabies like you have to have something to cry about or life is incomplete.

I think my new response will be sending emails to all the quitters after we win the match without them.

Just last night I won 3 matches after 2 - 3 people quit each time. Face it quitters - you often have no idea what is going to happen in a match after a minute or two. And by the time a loss is assured, you might as well get the commendations so you can buy heal kits to help your quitter self next match.

Losing a Warzone grants one of the 8 people in your group a Champ/BM bag. So you have a 1 out of 8 chance to get a bag every time if lets say you have 4 or more medals. Done! The Warzone commendations are just not enough.
Forcing them to stay, with a debuff, is also not good enough! It will just create a AFK problem.

This is the best approach. What they have done is made it beneficial to quit, when they tie matches won to character development. If they simply changed it to X matches played or X won, then quitting a warzone would be a hinderence to character development. Plus they could add in some bonuses for playing on an undermanned team, increase valor and credits while your team is out numbered, medals for playing an amount of time short handed, etc. That way, if someone quits, they would only be hurting their development time, while giving bonuses to the people they abandon.

Most likely they quit due to some of the reasons people have been talking about, ie bad connections, real life, a call from guildmates to join them...etc.

How about BW first gets rid of the extra man exploits and the afkers and botters?

The extra man exploit is extremely easy to do. (I am shocked it is not more common)
There are also known speed hacks that make huttball a futile undertaking.

And when people report someone afk it is very easy to find them, they are the guys standing in the corner somewhere and hiding in boxes in huttball.

Solve that problem and then we can consider leaver penalties.

All I know it should not take me 4-5 hours to complete my warzone dailies because the exploiters, afkers and bots are not being dealt with.

How can you prevent that?

Punishment.
If a team nosedives because one person left, chances are they were going to lose anyways. I've had quite a few wins with 1-3 people down at start. Heck, as rep on my server, that's how most games start.

Who cares if you can leave or not, then you will just afk until game is over. Taking a step or 2 every minute or so, just not to get kicked.
