Any news about blurry textures? Or screenshot issue I reported in other thread?

There's (at least?) one negative effect to removing match costs: players seem to leave matches a lot more if they see that they're badly balanced.

We've got some penalties coming for players who quit the match or alt+f4

Will the system be able to distinguish players who intentionally leave vs those who disconnect due to (e.g) a bad connection?

Players who actively click on "Quit/Leave match" or actively type "Alt+F4"

Scaramanga:[...] those who disconnect due to (e.g) a bad connection?

Do you mean disconnect, like actively pressing alt-f4 because the game is unplayable due to bad connection, or disconnect, like the game crashes and you won't be able (or don't attempt) to reconnect? In case of the latter, and in case Joe interpreted it similarly, his answer seems to be "yes", I think?(?)?

But in case my first interpretation goes: I don't think the game can know whether (edit: I always write whether like wether...) you quit because of "objectively unfair" conditions or because you just didn't want to play anymore :)

The system will know if the player goes the the process of leaving a match via the menu. As I said, clicking on "leave match" and also, it will know if a player pushes "alt+f4" on their keyboard when there is no reason to. i.e, no crash or freeze etc. If a player crashes out the game that is not their fault and there will be no penalty.

I meant game crashes/connection failures that causes players to unintentionally leave matches. So in that respect, Joe interpreted correctly.
I have no problem with it so long as it does not punish players who leave matches through no fault of their own.

Edit: will the system also be able to detect people who close the game through the task manager?

Will the system recognize people who quit the game by pushing power button or unplugging power cable? ;)

Press wifi on/off button or pull out cable. More convenient than to play a useless match and waste 15mins of your life.

VG, restrictions will not lead to you desired goal. People will only get frustrated. You need to remove these troubling aspects. If people really enjoyed the game, they would continue even if loosing. If you wish people to stay connected, remove bonuses for winning a round, remove missions for winning a round, reward more personal performance. Give a significant reward for anyone who stays in the game till the end. It does not cost you anything a you will get more people playing and less people leaving. You already put away lots of aspects that made the game challenging. Few more steps are needed to keep it alive. (also refering to 20g thread - bonuses should be at least 25% or better 50% for doing what you need players to do to make it worth trying)

Agreed with the last comment 100% and the given explanations/suggestions! Restrictions and punishments in a game that has many issues and shortcomings even before all this is not gonna solve any problems for you, is not gonna increase the playerbase and is not gonna make life better for anyone. It should be really easy to understand this to be honest.
"remove bonuses for winning a round, remove missions for winning a round, reward more personal performance. Give a significant reward for anyone who stays in the game till the end" All good and reasonable options that should be taken very seriously. Winning or losing a round in this game has become almost totally insignificant anyway, personally I dont care about it at all...the only thing is that you only receive a gun part for winning. Which in turn makes it pointless to even try in matches where you see its not gonna be a win whatever you do.
At least reward personal effort MUCH more and give much more parts to people who take part of matches actively and full-time. Regardless of win/lose. At this point that would be the only reason for me to stay in an otherwise utterly pointless match and fight it out for the "best player in the losing team"

I agree with will and sandsleeper. But it was suggested couple of times when people were complaining about ranked matches.
