The match lasted 2 hours, with the score 13-7 in our favor, and before we could get the last 2 kills, one person logged out, and then 7th Core turn tail and ran. They then proceeded to leave the match.

It was such a long game that one of their team mates had already left and another had just been killed, so it was a matter of 30 seconds before we killed them and won. Had it been me, I would have stayed and taken my licks, said "good game," and continued on having fun. I guess I'm more honorable than some.

My point being, I know it's been asked for many times, but they have to put some kind of system into place so that people can't escape dying by logging off or leaving the match. It cheats people out of their win, out of their emblems, and out of time they could have spent doing something (anything) better.
I think I was in that match too. I got disconnected at the beginning but didn't quit the match until the bitter end. But was discouraging we were on the bring of winning after a very long battle. Felt like like all that time was wasted.

As for people purposely logging off, its really becoming a troublesome technique for people to do that to avoid being killed in PvP. So I would love for it if Cryptic had it that if you purposely log off during a match, you don't return. Then again, not too hard to pull the plug and force a disconnect.

Our side was 5 Cruisers, the other side was 1 Escort, 2 Sci, and 2 Cruisers. And most of them were Sci Captains (talk about Photonic Fleet spam).

Hmm...I think we were in different matches, our whole team had cruisers and the other team had all cruisers and 1 sci. The match honestly wouldn't have gone anywhere if it weren't for our team eventually spamming Hargh'pengs on the poor RSV. Nobody would frickin die!

I dropped today as well (along with my brother) when our internet failed. 2 mins later we were back in, but unable to contribute to the match! Everyone was counted as friendly, and it was automatically booting me in 15 seconds.

Even though I had a last moment to apologize, I still felt like crap for being part of the reason a solid opening turned into what looked like a losing match before I got booted...

One way to help with this would be to have a 30 second timer until logout. City of __ does it.

Rage quitting is a real problem, just ask FIFA Online players.

Along those lines but slightly different, I have unleashed some deadly alphas on a ship and woosh it disappears then reappears 10km away on the other side of the battle. No it wasn't MES, and I wasn't jammed. They just fade away and reappear at full health outside my sphere of influence. It isn't a full log but some how they go from 10% health and right in front of me to 100% 10-15km away.

You wont find me captaining a love boat anytime soon. I don't like 1 hour+ matches.

Seen this happen a few times today in the same Cap n Hold match.

We have person 'X' down to 2% and you see them..vanish, and in the chat window, it says 'X' has left the match..then 3 seconds or so later, 'X' has entered the match.

Is there a glitch.bug that allows you to leave a match while engaged and then immedatly come back in to same match?

You can log out at Red Alert and come back with full shields. That's been going on since the start. I've been filing bug tickets but it doesn't seem to matter. I do suspect that something else is going on, because when you /logout you come back at the same spot. Some people are doing the jump and seem to be returning at a different spot.
