Every single match I’ve played (and I literally mean every single one), there are at least 2-3 quitters within the first 5 minutes. I am typically being left alone to fight 4 people.

I wouldn’t mind this as much but when I try to quit, I get warned with a bull**** message that I’ll be penalized.

How come I’m being penalized when everyone else quit? Why doesn’t this game allow me to quit without penalization?

Damn, I have the same problem, but not as often as you. Its very frustrating to fight 4v1.
Penalties for quitters must be MORE severe
