FIFA 10 and FIFA 11 rewarded users who left early by giving them an achievement/trophy. It's very annoying when a player leaves early when they're losing so any ideas of what EA Sports should do to deal with it? It's putting of a lot of people off playing ranked matches

Pair the quitters against each other so there will be a race of who can quit first.

Ban players with a 40%+ DNF.

Failing that, flamethrower.

i wouldnt say ban becuase altough the majority of the time people themselves quit. lets not forget the sh** ea servers we have. the amount of times i have frozen halfway through a game.

i think that ea make people with the same dnf play with each other.

I don't have many problems. It might be your connection. When you play Fifa it is nothing to do with any EA servers, it is a connection between you and the other player.

I get alot of freezing at the moment on Fifa11, dont have any other issues with any other games online. Over the past few nights I've had at least 3 games where it has frozen and looking at the other players gamercard says a different score to the one I see. No idea why.

Back to quitters anyway. I've always thought it would be good if they are locked out of playing online for a certain amount of time after they quit. Nothing too dramatic just an hour or 30 min or summat like that. Would make them think twice about quitting I'm sure.

Yeah, I think banning them for 30 minutes or so after 3 or 4 consecutive quits would be a decent way of going after the quitters. I'd make really high DNFers play one another too. Maybe 20% or higher.

I think a 15 minute block on online features, plus a hefty loss of ranking points would do the trick. That way it is quicker and less costly to play to the end, and removes any benefit to quitting.

I agree on high DNFers being made to play one another too.

Block them earning any trophies/achievements for 24 hours and a 60 minute ban too.
Also a wall of shame would be a good idea.
Another idea use a matching system say someone with a 40%dnf rate would only be matched with someone else with 40%dnf ect...

Let the DNF's play each other...it will drive them crazy.

Btw when someone quits...why EA doesn't then ACTUALLY give you the 3 nil win and show the screen that comes up at the end of the match so you can see your points and rank adding up..ill never know.

If someone quits it should count as a loss for them. They should get a warning, if they keep quitting a temp ban and if they still keep quitting a perm ban.

I don';t tend to play any football games, but surely handing the quitter a 5-0 defeat on their record would be enough of a deterrant wouldn't it?

Its 3-0 at the moment and that doesnt seem to stop them so dont think a 5-0 defeat recorded would make too much difference tbh.

I'd add the 5 goal deduction in addition to the score at the time the player quit.

For example, if he quit when he was losing 4-0, the final score would be 9-0. Plus, the quitter would not be able to play a new match for the same period of time that the original game would have lasted.

Great idea

Although the time thing wouldnt affect the "after the final whistle" quitters that annoy me! I'm not sure why they annoy me so much but they do

They should sort out the EA severs too.

I only play Fifa Ultimate Team and last night alone, I was cut off from the servers 4 times in a hour. When playing Ultimate Team you get more coins , the less you quit, which stops people quitting, but when the servers kick you off, they treat this as a DNF, and it really pisses me off.

It will take me 30 odd games now (if the servers do not kick me off ) to get my DNF back up to 1.25 on UT.

It is only EA servers I have problems with too. Joke service and has been for as long as I can remember.

this is a tough one because i dont believe ea could stop anyone from using the online service, especially on xbl as they have paid for the service. UNLESS they write it into their own t's and c's that come with using the ea servers.

I like the idea of actually rewarding the non quitter double points while reducing the quitter to zero. then as others have suggested, making those with a high dnf play each other.

i cant remember, but does FIFA 11 show the DNF% of the player your playing in the team selection screen?

If not maybe add that, so you can fairly beat them to it

As long as I scores the W whilst quitter score the L, I don't mind. I think there was a trophy on Fifa 11 to win a so many games on the run, and if someone quit on you it reset back to 0 or something? Irritance is what that was.

The problem with the current system is that if your opponent leaves early, your win is not counted in the streak (for achievements) and i doubt you get any ranking increase for it either. Would be good for the quitter to be locked out for a certain time but i doubt EA Sports would be willing to reduce the amount of people online even if it would help bring more people back to playing ranked matches.

Something else i was wondering is are EA Sports able to distinguish between a player leaving and a player being d/c? Because if they are and EA put up a system to punish those that chose to leave the game early, i assume the quitters could just restart their consoles or go to the dashboard and make it seem like they hadn't left by choice. Bottom line is the quitters are annoying

I approve of this

At least if someone quits early they give you the win (on PC anyway), its the people who don't actually quit at all and refuse to play who annoy me. If they're losing by any great scoreline they don't play anymore, then refuse to select an option at the rematch screen at the end, the 15 seconds elapses and the game gets stuck...then I have to quit and it gives them the win despite me being 3 or 4 nil up!

Its rather simple and solves what people are annoyed about.

1. If a player quits, the game continues with A.I. taking over... that way once you win/lose/draw it will be added to your record and will count
2. The player will quits is banned for the duration of the match time remaining with a warning about quitting. The traditional 3-0 lose will be put up against them in red, and people who check their history can view the amount of scorelines in red. Therefore easy to spot quitters
3. Constant quitting results in a 12 hour ban
4. Repeated quitting adds 12 hours on for each ban before getting to the point of a permanent band off the server.
