I still don't understand why we don't have AI on boots on EVERY team ladder. Fizzer has been asked this many times in live chats, it has been up-voted a ton on uservoice (is that still a thing?). I have still never heard a good argument why a person should be booted and not become an AI on ladder games. Every good competition (clan league for example) uses this. Why not our ladders?
The AI is still REALLY dumb and is a major handicap. Is that not punishment enough for getting booted?

First of all Timinator is 100% accurate. Fizzer wants to punish players for getting booted as an attempt to mitigate how frequently it happens.
Problem is there are so many players who still allow themselves to get booted, even despite the huge handicap, and the 3 day deadline.
Really the best thing you can do is make sure that your team consists entirely of reliable partners with relatively low boot rates. There is no reason you should join the ladder in the first place if you're not confident in your team's ability to be reliable and show up as needed.
It's 3 days to commit one turn, it's not unreasonable! Also if a member of a team goes on hiatus and gets booted every game the team should drop out.

I know that is what Fizzer said. I don't agree with it.
Let's say team A is up BIG, but Player X has half their income. If Player X gets booted while the other team is stalling, they'll win. How does that make sense? The goal should be to reward the team that outplays the other. Not to incentivize people to stall in hopes someone gets booted.
For basically ANY real contender, the AI would be a punishment. The AI may play better than SOME players, but certainly not any top 5 team.
3v3 EU can take a long time to play, why ruin a ladder team's run simply because some team slow plays a clear loss and gets a lucky boot?
