  • Bad leavers pool system right now

    While yes the new system has made leaving almost obsolete, its ridiculous sometimes. I've fallen victim to it three times even though I never purposely leave.

    When the server crashes, sometimes I can expect to log on and I'll be in the leavers pool.
    Or sometimes when the client crashes (total lock up) I cant get back in enough time.

    but I think the problem lies with the duration, 24 hours is absolutely ridiculous, especially during a beta when leaving can not be your fault. It should add up in hours (reducing over time).
    This leavers pool system does work, nobody dares leave a game, but it annoys the hell out of legit players too (Well, at least me. I don't know many other players so I cant be plural but I assume I'm not alone)

    First leave, +2 hours in pool
    Second leave, +4 hours in pool
    Third leave, +8 hours in pool

    Reducing the leave count by 1 every few days to avoid ridiculous pool hours.

    Purely a suggestion based on how frustrating this is getting. I'm stuck in the pool yet again due to the server crash this afternoon and decided I should say something about it.
