    So lately I've done some 4-4 matches on Bnet so I can get better at human, but EVERY single time I go on a 4-4, someone, if not everyone, leaves the match, leaving teams fully disbalanced, like 1-4, 2-1 :slp:

    Why do people even do idiotic actions like that? It doesn't seem that much fun to me, those people fail :angry:

    On the other hand, I can't even find decent 2-2 these days, the ally leaves, leaving me alone against 2 players, on a race I don't even play good. :bored:

    I don't get it. Why must they do such imature things? Can't they just enjoy the game? Is it THAT fun to ruin someone's match? :thumbs_down:

    That is kind of sad. But there's nothing we can do about it. It sucks.

    Ruining people's matches must be fun for them, but it just makes me sad. I keep seeing decent matches out there ruined by idiots.

    To be honest people who insult everyone that does something useful on this site, deserve to have every game of theirs ruined, as for the other people, it's a sad thing.

    This is the truth. They just suck at melee that hard they'd rather ruin other people's matches. I love 4-4 and 3-3, and seeing so many leavers/afk-ers :cry:

    Some people leave because of disconnections or lag. Others leave because they have nothing better to do and like to ruin other peoples experiences.

    actually a lot of people leave to get on a loss streak so that they get into lower ranked games. apart from that, i never had this problem very much when i played melee

    its a way to abuse the match making system

    but tbh who really cares about 4on4 anyone is capable of training 10 wyrms and autoattacking with them

    Some people leave because they think their allies suck; happened to me a few times. I've been going for a strategy a friend taught me(apparently not a 'pro' strategy) and my ally was all like "ALLY NUB. BB" and quit.

    Asides from that I really do suck at melee.

    A lot of players use it to smurf their account (get a lot of losses so that they get matched up with bad players and can just laugh at them) and to balance out their stats.

    For example, Darkness.RT on Azeroth was ranked #1 in FFA/RT for like a year and he constantly had to leave games because he couldn't find a matchup (once you get to a certain point, it'll only matchup you up with people that it deems are your skill and that means 4+ hour wait times for 7 other players at your skill level to want to matchup)

    probably because those people thought beforehand that melee MIGHT be somewhat fun, but once they are actually playing it they realise, fuck this slow paced boring shit.

    the match making system fails so that;s why many people are converting to garena

    I like melee :D (but because of reflex, I zerg rush with ghouls instantly)

    More people play on Garena becuase BNet is filled with hackers than because they don't like the matchmaking system...

    There's several reasons for it, i'll explain some of them.

    First: The player gets a DC/Crash.
    Second: The player needs to go for some unknown reason.
    Third: The player gets scared and runs away.
    Fourth: The player just trolled you and forced you to create a stupid thread like this.

    You got the point.

    failure of matches has tons of explanations during in the game and I'll rate them as neutral failures, like these for examples:

    Beginner's Fail-since they can't coup with Pros and Legends(even Beginners as such), they quit several missions for them to have a chance to win the game

    Serious Whelps-these dudes and doodads are too impatient and rude when they fail or loose while in the game, instead of accepting there failure, they intend to quit the game and find another one for them to get a chance to win (same example from the Beginner's fail)

    Blame the Internet!-these people had a hard time using the internet because they connection's getting disturbed, extreme lag, or resulting of low speed in the internet they use

    Passing the Time- they know the game, there good, not bad but! they use it just to pass there time without excusing the players that will be involved with the unbalanced match, for example a guy played a 4v4 match only to wait for his lunch to appear, when the time has come, he quits and head on to his meal(just an example)

    I have experience all of it for over 6 years from now, and still going on forever

    1. They gtg
    2. Someone else left, so they might as well
    3. They think one of their team mates are noobs and just leaves
    4. They are trolls
    5. Their dog/cat/cookie is on fire
    6. They are about to lose so they leave
    7. They see your/the enemys huge army, leave
    8. Ragequit
    9. They want to play a custom match
    10. They want to play with friends

    Thats ten reasons for someone to leave a match not finished.
    (I didn't say they are ten GOOD reasons ;P)
