If you're waiting for 2 hours for a RT game to fill or 2 days for an MD game, it's time to stop playing and move on with your life.

Every time I hear this comment, I look at the person's boot rate, and it's super high. What's really going on is people figured out how to avoid people who always get booted using prereqs and such. Get your boot rate down and you'll find a totally different experience.

I think maybe a solution for this is to put a note at the top of the open games page saying something like "X games are hidden due to your boot rate." Right now, you just can't see the games you're missing out on so you have no idea you're being punished. This would encourage people to stop getting booted.

That's a good idea. You should implement it.

I did a quick poll of 7 open games. Wulf would not see 3 out of 7. This is, of course, just one data point but you get the idea. This also doesn't take into account the games i can't see. You also can't start over because there are level pre-requisites.

Another option that I would consider in addition is to give a automatic warning in chat, every-time someone boots in a RT game. "Player X is warned for leaving the game. Repeated offences will result in a suspension from joining RT games." A suspension that last a short amount of time (15 min?). This is how Chess sites deal with players who let the clock run out instead of surrendering or moving.

For the record i could see 13 open RT games:
8 for 20% rate
9 for 15 % rate
11 for 10% rate
13 for lower than 5 %

Again, you really should address just how paradoxical that is. To lower your boot rate, you need to play games, but to play games, you need to lower your boot rate.

At the end of the day, it encourages spammy games or creating new accounts if you have a past of favoring longer games (FFAs, big team scenarios, dip, etc).

Most QM games don’t have pre-requests. The only requirement to play in ladder games is to unlock the ladder. If you play QM and ladder games without getting booted, your boot rate will be reduced.
