Yeah, I thought of the same, but it’s not a solution. When you get in a queue and there’s not a lot of options to play, one shouldn’t need to leave a game. Besides, it might count as a loss.
The other day I queued to play as a monster, and as always, I get put into the Assault slot of a game that was in progress. After the match was over, I had some idiot insult me and grief me repeatedly telling me how I sucked at assault. He ust have been very bored or have an empty life, you know how this kids are, cause he wouldn’t let go.
More recently I got into a lobby as a monster against 3 players. The game started and that same guy was added when the game was in progress. I thought of ending the game, because I really didn’t feel like subjecting myself to some idiot insulting me, in my valuable free time. (THANKS TO THE FACT WE DON’T HAVE AN OPTION TO BLOCK TEXT CHAT OR BLOCK INDIVIDUAL PEOPLE, TRS. HELLO @MacMan) But that would have been him winning, a stupid bully getting to have an influence in my life.
So to make the story short, (oh, because it was), it took me 5 minutes to wipe out the whole team, including that a-hole, who now was playing assault and took me like 10 seconds to finish once I got sight of him. After the victory screen, I made a remark at him on how the shoe was on the other foot now, and left him there, hopefully considering his past errors (but if not, at least feeling miserable).
This wouldn have happened if Evolve had a way to:
- Block people’s text chat at will.
- Play whatever side you choose.
I know 2) is simplifying the problem, because it involves other factors like player availabilty and server/region lock. But 1)? That should be easy as hell, in fact I propose to have an option (remember, it’s an OPTION, you don’t beed to use it) to have all communication turned off if you want to. I would totally use it. And it would prevent this kind of problem from ever happening again.
So that’s what I’m asking for.
