Don't know about the 1 hour ban time for quits, Because if your just trying to have a game and you disconnect, come back just to see a 1 hour ban that is probably going to drive away a lot of players as well. I remember disconnecting at least 4-6 times before turn 10 when trying to reach that 30 duel thing for set 11.

It doesn't matter what the penalty is if they ever choose to add one. It'll always be applied to people who dc, regardless. This can't be helped aside from getting a more reliable connection, which may or may not be a possibility for some people.

Implying they are not actually considering this, and working on a solution.

Stop asking for penalties. They game is already penalizing enough as it is.

I agree. I'm not sure charging people 1 penny per quit will really curb this behavior. I think players deserve the right to quit a game at level 1 if they want to. It's not an enjoyable experience to play a match you know you're going to be crushed in and I don't think you should necessarily force players into such a negative experience.

Would a better suggestion be to further reward a player for losing, but playing through anyway?

Something like an xp bonus? I don't think there is any room to play around with gran rewards at this point. Is there any other way someone could suggest to promote better sportsmanship? Maybe the xp bonus could kick in by a certain turn or by full lp loss?

I am just searching for possible answers to an issue that keeps arising in the forums. One that seems to be putting a damper on regular and irregular events, such as underdog and 5 of 7.

Yeah I like this idea a lot. You could give players who play at least 10 turns extra experience or something. It would incentivize players trying to compete, but not directly punish players who just don't want to play a certain match.

You have played world of tanks, you have seen an incentive to play better even when guys on your team is dead drunk and drive their tanks into trees!

If it was alteil for each match you lost you would've only gotten 1 exp instead of few hundred!

I have gotten as much as 1299 exp in a match I lost, If I won.. that would've been like 4k exp but eh, consolation prize is far better in wot than it is in alteil.

Here's an idea:
5 xp for playing 10+ turns and loosing

+ 10 FM for loosing at 0 lp

Is winner takes all mentality. Bad idea but an idea at least.

Now I'll prefer something like -v

No. lvl 1 unit is 10 exp, lvl 2 unit is 20 exp, lvl 3 unit 30 exp, lvl 8 unit 80 exp. You get the idea, each time you kill a copy of them, you get exp. This is a rough concept. Haven't decided on value of grimiores yet.
