Cool stuff. Maybe I'll get into the Halo series this fall. If only all FPS devs could do something similar.

Maybe segregate gamers by skill (matchmaking skill levels) and quitters/non-quitters. Let all the quitters play among themselves while the non-quitters play against each other.

Bungie Plans Serious Penalties For Reach Ragequitters

If you're one of those who dashboards out of multiplayer after getting
backstabbed or headshot three times, take note: Bungie told Xbox 360
Achievements that it wants to remove ragequitters from the population so
they won't ruin everyone else's fun.

Brian Jarrard, the Bungie community director, said the measures will be
"one of the new things people will be excited about. [Ragequitting]
isn't exactly cheating, but it creates a really negative experience for
everybody else in the game."

Jarrard didn't get much more specific, just said that they have advanced
ragequit recognition heuristics to make sure they're not cracking down
on people who accidentally drop their net connection. The penalties
themselves were not discussed, so it's unclear whether this is a ban, a
timeout, or a special temper-tantrum lobby where ragequitters can
ragequit on each other.

"We actually have new tools now to detect that and eventually, people
who do this habitually will actually be penalized," Jarrard said, "We
want to be able to remove them from the population so they can't make
everyone else keep having a bad time."
Just so long as I can still ragequit out of singleplayer.

I never really ragequit too much when I played Halo's multiplayer, so hopefully I won't get any of these serious penalties. I do think its good though for all those 10 year olds who quit in the middle of a game, that gets annoying, and that's what hopefully this will eliminate.

ok so when the other team is using a lag switch or any other mod that could be used in halo, if you rage quit you get penalized?

I saw this and I was about to post it. Pretty interesting, I'd imagine there will be an exp. loss but I wonder if they're thinking of anything else too.
