Hey, this isn't a question about boats that bounce off the border or are actively playing and are on the edges but about the ones you sometimes see immediately run to the border and grind there, guns static in one direction, being full health until the end of the game. If they were disconnected, as far as I know, the boat should come to a halt and the guns should revert to the start position. What reason would anyone have to do this?

If we had a good answer to "Why would a person ever do this stupid thing" the world would be a much better place.

Stupidity stupidity, humanities quest for understanding stupidity is futile. 

Also, Perfection is unachievable but humanity insist on its existence.

Humans, by nature are flawed in both the above noted areas.

Legitimately, only reasons I can see would technical issues or bugs that didn't DC a player but left them in game and unable to see or do anything, rare, but I've seen it in the past. The player is probably trying to figure out what is going on and may not actually DC until they restart. Also could be a player got called away from the computer for an emergency. Also, that should be a rare event.

Simple solution is to have ticking non repairable fire damage whenever you border hump for more than 20 seconds.

Some players will hump border because it screws up enemy's ability to aim accurately … they can farm from what looks like a static position

If they have nothing to shoot at that's just camping … the edge of the map is safer than the center 

That's my understanding at least

Actually only bots guns revert back to 6:00 & 12:00 (when they don't have a target...not when DCed of course).

Players turrets stay where last aimed when they DC.

Only time a players turrets stay at 6&12 is if they never load into a game.
