Dear Blue Manchu, I took a look at this thread right here, and a suggestion came to mind that'll REALLY discourage resigning Ranked matches early [if it's really that much of a problem]. Me, personally, I only ever report someone for taking too much time if it literally takes them 2 minutes to PLAY A TRAIT/MANDATORY ACTION [C'mon, it's not like you HAVE A CHOICE; decide the order you wanna play them in and THEN think a lot]. I've never reported someone for quitting early, though. When someone quits early, I go, "oh, cool. Easy win for me." If someone resigns in the 1st 5 seconds, I'm not gonna blow a gasket. I get free stuff if that happens, and I'm never gonna argue with free stuff. That aside, though, BM, if you REALLY wanna discourage early resignations, simply permanently erase a random Rare, Epic AND Legendary item from any player that resigns a Ranked match before earning even a single VP. Note that I said "AND" and not "OR". That'll discourage early resignations. You could explain that one of those Hidden Bandits came and took 'em. - Mike. Edit [12 minutes later]: After having more of a think about this, I decided to add the following points: If you wanna discourage resignations, BM, you have to discourage ALL forms of resignation, or else there will still be people who think it's OK. I've lost 6-0 before; It's not the end of the world. and don't say, "awwww, that's prolonging the inevitable. You should just quit if you know you're going to lose". That's a cop out. Just because you know you're going to lose doesn't mean that you have to hand them a win on a silver platter. Suck it up and try to salvage by getting the 2 stars you need to keep your META Standing from dropping, at least. x( Another edit [7 minutes later]: After some more thought, thanks to Post #4 [made by @timeracers], I've notice that the above points can also go for inactivity or timer timeouts where the resigning player has yet to earn a VP.
