    Have you asked why they leave?
    Does this happen in the middle of a match, or while searching for one?
    Nowadays there are many quitters so it really isnt a suprise to me 1 or 2 leave the game.

    it happens in the conecting part (not the searching part) when you see the 10 players conecting some just wont connect. so the game most of the time start with 5 versus 3 its not that they leave they just cant connect i cant even see the names of the ones that did not make it in the gamei know there are a lot of quitters but that is not the problem

    Make sure your windows firewall is off, and any other anit-virus program using a firewall as well.

    Yes, turn off any other firewall, besides ZAP's firewall.
