1.3.0 - Leaving a ranked game during warmup should result in a loss

edited October 2017 in Bugs

Platform: GearVR
Device: S7E Snapdragon, Android 7.0, Matricom XYBA gamepad
Username: PleasedToMeetYou
Wands Version: 1.3.0 (Rift Release)

Severity: Moderate
Frequency: 100%
Description: If you leave a ranked match at ANY time (other than the post-match screen) it should count as a loss. This needs to include the Warmup period (which currently has no penalty). The reason this is necessary is to prevent players from dodging others they do not wish to play. It is a degenerate strategy that has a negative effect on the integrity of the rankings and ranked play.
Steps to Reproduce: Join a ranked match against someone you know is going to beat you then leave the match during the warmup period. Result: You get no penalty to your rating and bring great shame to your family.
