Seriously, it's bad enough when you're thrown into a losing game with >2:00m left, but I am FREQUENTLY being thrown into the end of games. I join just as everyone is leaving a finished game and I'm basically alone on the battlefield until I manually quit the warzone.

Bioware needs to understand that some games NEED to be aborted like the aboninations they are. If someone is leading 5-0 with 2:00m left in Huttball DON'T refill the opposing team, just save everyone's time and let it end! Sure, I've been sent into a few great comeback matches like that, but more often than not, it's already decided and nothing is going to change it.

I've joined plenty of 5-0 matches with 2-3 fresh players and we've managed to turn the tide of battle and win the warzone. Not just on Huttball either but I think Civil War is the only match that can't be won if there's a significant lead for the opposition. Regardless what your post is saying is that you're bad and cba with an easy win. Harsh truth but maybe you should try a little harder and you may see the results you want.

I'd kill to get into a losing huttball match with two minutes left and get decent enough stats for 50 comms.

Sure, I'd lose and never get my weekly done, but seriously, 25 comms a minute is ridiculously fast!

If you get in there with 2 or 3 good players fine when you are thrown in there as the only person with any decent gear it is bend over and grab them time and a total waste of my time. Plus I have been thrown in so late that it ends before I get down to the fight. Which is I guess ok unless you are trying to finish out the weekly then it is back to the queue

Word, it's not my loss so why should I have to deal with it? I insta-quit when it happens.

Not the first or last game to have a piss poor system like that.

Where did I say I give up and don't give it my all -oh wait! That's right! I didn't! I play 100% in these matches and usually obtain a decent amount of MVP points. I'm just saying I'd RATHER enter into fresh matches or matches that aren't 80-90% complete.


As the rational people have already stated, when you enter a game of Huttball down 5-0 with 1-2 minutes left. . .And you're seemingly the ONLY person on your team playing the objective. . . it's near impossible to comeback -not just based on time- but because the team isn't even trying to win (Medal farming, AFKing, whatever).

I already conceded that comebacks are possible, however, when a team goes up 5-0 in the first 1-2 minutes, that's usually the signs of a Good Team playing a Bad Team. And just because some rage quitters allow the Bad team to cycle-in new players, doesn't mean those all-stars on the other side of the ball are just going to rollover after going up 5-0 in record time.

Now, going back to the basis of this post: ^THIS!^ It's not just about opportunity comebacks but time management. I have entered matches that re literally over. Not figuratively. Literally! I mean done; scoreboard's up and everyone's going home! I join but the game doesn't give me the scoreboard option to leave and I have to manually leave. . .Or I can just run around and gain capping medals that I can't cash-in.

I would love the option to choose wether ot not i Back fill a match, there is no real reward for those that do if they come in real late in the match. either reward players that do come in real late or give us the choice to play fresh games only.

Ya I extremely hate backfilling, to the point where I'll usually just leave. A way to fix this is to just give any backfillers a certain amount of medals dependent on when you backfill (joining later gives more medals). This way people will be less likely to leave. Also there should be a cutoff time where the game stops backfilling because there's been way too many times I join a game only to see the scoreboard pop up. So I guess, stop backfilling if a game only has under 1-2 mins left to go.
