Try queuing solo in a cruiser/science vessel against premades running 3 wells and 2 JHAS chaining 3x TIF, 2x AMS, 5x Subspace Rupture along with extend shields circles. Then on top of that you have to deal with "lol noobs", "Your team sucks lol", and similar comments from the premade. You don't honestly expect us to believe that such a match would be enjoyable. Adding a leaver penalty would only serve to hold people into said matches, allowing for the premade to continue trolling and brushing their own egos. Leaving a match like that should be permitted.
None of you know this, but there are premades on ground that will lay minefields on the spawn point if it looks like there team will lose the match. To put it into perspective, a single minefield kills a medic though all heals. If a team with two engineers makes it to the enemy team's spawn, they can set up a bunker there, making it impossible for anyone that dies to respawn. With such matches the only thing you can do is beam out to find another match. Naturally this is considered foul play, but there is nothing to prevent this from happening for the same reason there is nothing to prevent camping in space PvP. Before we even think about banning players that warp out/beam we need to ban premades from the public queues and make it impossible to sit on another team's spawn point.
