For example, take into account that if there is a registered disconnect or a failed host migration, or a connection to the host and a teammate is replaced by a bot, there should be no quit penalties after that point.

Most people select player vs player for a reason, if they wanted bots in game, they would have selected player vs AI.

Another one that happens is that a party can get split up for no reason, where one person finds a game and the other(s) aren't able to join. When that happens, you don't actually have the option to quit until the match actually loads and starts (unless you alt+f4). So that's a legitimate reason to quit a match in my opinion.

Apparently "they've said multiple times that the game knows the difference between a disconnect and a quit". At the same time, the game doesn't know the difference between a game about to end and a game just starting; so instead of joining a game in lobbies when people leave, you actually get thrown into games that are ending. So they can say that it's gonna be a good update without problems but we all know how updates go with this game.

It's already not being done intelligently as they have numerous other issues that should be fixed before a leaver penalty is implemented. Just to give one of the many, sometimes when people load into a match they are stuck in a birds-eye view of the map and can't do anything about it except leave the match. So now this person has to suffer a penalty due to the games technical flaws and lacking features that have been a problem since release? Or he can sit in that game as I think you can still move around, but be completely useless to the team. He might as well since he will get rewards at least instead of a leaver penalty which will likely involve a time out so you can't queue right away.

This is only one of the many reason why a leaver penalty is a terrible idea at this point and a minor one in comparison at that.

I think they need map preferences soon as well. I hate some maps. Or say I rather dislike the way some places play on some maps.

But all In all quitting sucks, 4on4 with shinobi and especially cent sucks - because the freakin amount of cc currently in this game sucks.
