Yes, and in a matchmaking system put rage quitters with other rage quitters.

Rockstar did something like that with Max Payne 3. Anyone caught cheating/hacking would be put into a separate lobby, and would only be allowed to play with other cheaters indefinitely. Having something like that could easily work for ragequitters too.

The only problem would be discerning who actually rage-quitted and who had genuine connection issues.

Probation

They do it in quite a few games.

I dont think it should be punished though as it also punishes people that get disconnected etc. Also, when you buy a game you should be able to quit as much as you want.

It should simply depend on frequency. If you DC only once every x games, you would be fine. If you did it far too many times, you account would be flagged.

I have no problems understanding there are people who legitimately disconnect a lot. But it ruins the fun for the other player(s) when you do it.

My view is strictly this... If you have a good reason for quitting, then you should not be punished for it. Like, getting tired, you suspect your party is playing unfairly, things like that. You shouldn't be punished because your party members are acting like a bunch of douche bags. If people are going to be punished for rage-quitting because their party members are acting like morons, then it is only fair for developers to punish people for tea bagging.

The thing about online most gamers need to understand is not everyone is going to play the way you want.

Called Adapting to them, however some developers make near impossible online trophies and don't punish D/Cing gamers, I think that wrong on both accounts.
