You don't anymore BECAUSE this system is in place. Before, when it wasn't, people did it ALL the time. Which is why there is now a 2 hour penalty

You got the XP because that is awarded as the mission progresses, not in a lump sum at the end of the match

I still maintain that it is unreasonable this nonsense is applied to PRIVATE matches, where everyone agrees on what the correct behavior is and do not need some arbitrary external standard applied to a private game. The entire point of a private game is so that we can play the way WE want, not to have arbitrarily rules of play imposed by whining morons.

so basically you are an inconsiderate jerk who thinks going afk in any sort of scenario is acceptable. all you had to do was close the damn game so you would onto incur a penalty AND open a slot for another person in queue.. but noo, it's all about YOU isn't it. are you one of the jerks who just run point to pint in Dyson to get credit for captures you don't participate in?

as far as leaving a match, stuff happens. I don't really do long term events because our comcast connection randomly brainfarts and we lose connectivity. you wanna know how annoying it is to get the damn borg command ship to 5% and then poof! you get the dreaded disconnect from the server message?

Doffing brings up my next point, we are unable to open up our OWN private matches with that team for 2 hrs, again, a penalty nonfunctional.

Annemarie, condescension will get you nowhere. Also exiting the game/match would still incur the penalty to my understanding. If I'm incorrect please correct me on this.

That was the AFK penalty at work, stripping the AFKer of rewards. Working as intended, love.

It'll get you farther than pounding your chest about being a paying customer and demanding refunds.

They can use that time to think if its worth going for that soda or what not next time.

If your going to queue for something get your s*** together before you queue

It would incur a leaver penalty as opposed to an AFK penalty.

It depends on what point you leave a match.

If you are the first or second to leave and it's before 15 mins since it started, you will get a 1 hour penalty

If you are the third to fifth player to leave before 15 mins, you will not get a penalty

If you are marked as AFK (no moving, buffing, creating damage to NPC opponents), you get a 2 hour penalty

If you private a match, you do NOT get a leaver penalty, but you can get a afk penalty from what I understand ( I have not ever seen anyone AFK in a private match, mostly cause the players I form private matches with aren't douchebags)
