Michael Condrey has confirmed on Twitter that Sledgehammer Games will be adding a penalty system for players who continue to back out mid game in Ranked Play matches. Currently, there’s no system in place which enforces those who back out.
Black Ops 2’s League Play featured a probation system which put players on probation for backing out of too many matches.
Advanced Warfare Ranked Play’s first season is set to start in early January. We don’t have exact start date for the Season as of right now. Top 100 players in the first season will get the previously announced Grand Master Reward.
