Penalty to ESC out of a game if dead?

Just wondering if there is a penalty or any kind of loss in points/recognition if, once you're killed in battle, you ESC out of the game to go to another ship and enter a new battle, before the original battle is complete? Specifically in Random Battles. Sometimes I get killed early and elect to go to another battle in a new ship, rather than stick around to the end. Hope that's not bad form.

No penalty for leaving a battle after you're sunk.

I think it's only if you ESC out while still afloat.

This^

There were some complaints early that players were being punished for leaving the battle even after dead, but  haven't heard anyone claim that for awhile.

Yeah, if I get sunk, I just hit the space, and if shows me another ship's view, I'm safe.  No issues.

No pentathlon if you are sunk and leave a battle, only a problem if you leave battle when you are still alive.

Good, I don't want to compete in a pentathlon.

Autocorrect?

Thanks, I hadn't seen any indication that I was losing anything from leaving after being sunk but just wanted to be sure. Being a noob, I often stick around to watch how others handle their boats & try to get some free pointers, but sometimes I just want to immediately get into the action again.

This is actually one of the best things you can do to get better quickly!  Though some may say you learn more of what not to do by watching others :Smile-_tongue:

That is true HOWEVER, if the battle a Co-op (Random is actually possible, but extremely rare) where you're the only human player, if you punch out of the game then it ends in a Draw -- the bots will not fight to a conclusion.  If it looks like a green bot win, stay in and receive the better rewards of a Win.
