View Full Version : People who abandon shouldn't be able to find items

I mean, I guess it doesn't matter that much - but I don't see why people who abandon should be rewarded with an item.
Just had a guy who left get the only item at the end of a match.

At least "reward" those who stay in I suppose

You won’t earn rewards or Battle Points if:

- You are in the low priority pool.
- You abandon a game / trigger a leaver penalty.
- You are in a practice lobby.

Item drops should be completely reworked.

They should only happen at the end of the match, and only for people who have not left the game, instead of just dropping items randomly while people play and announcing them at the end of the match.

I once had a Niax ragequit in the first 15 minutes, and then a RARE dropped for him at the end of the game. I was so pissed that assholes like that get items when I was on a 8 match item drought.

They fixed this yesterday; leavers won't get items anymore.
