I would not want kicking to be removed at this moment in time. Playing pickups kicking is a nice feature that allows people who have crashed to get back into the game without some other player taking up a spot. If crashes became alot less frequent than maybe I could see the kick feature being removed.
Extra info: The last set one of them crashed and it was 1-1 at that point but since my internet wasnt working they only got the screenshot after the game ended when we all left and it became 2-1. Another thing in the continuation of the game HV went 3 cav in a round that they won so they forfeited that round
In my opinion the best way to improve the mode is increase the scale the reason why certain classes are bad is that the time to kill is really fast and the unit amount is low. This makes archers less impactful (in their intended use not kiting endlessly) and makes Rambo more impactful. If they made the troop count to 400 on each side instead of around 100 it allows more diversity in composition. The only negative is performance.
