I'm a casual player and mostly play spike rush mode. Despite being a short format, I observe shocking frequency of at least one player dodging on agent select page (either not selecting or outright quitting the game).
I propose following to mitigate the issue:
- Have a cancel button on agent select page, so that players who have made up the mind to not select agent can click this button and save everyone's time.
- Have two levels of penalty in the form of timeout before next game can be started:
a. if a player clicked cancel button, the penalty is lower.
b. if player let timer expire, timeout should be long to deter such actions
There can be more sophisticated rules for penalty (which probably already exist) if a player cancels too frequently.
