The kick idea sounds great, but could be expanded a bit more, 4 example on a 2v2 the hosts and his team mate are losing, so the host kicks his team mate, so they don't lose elo (on a 2v2 custom elo match case)
We are Really to the edge of our seats waiting for that No-Elo update.
Cause literally, it may be a social problem, so many friends have already scaled up the elo thing to a personal level, to the point they don't want to play with each other anymore since the "elo kick to win" bug was used.
I'm really a big fan of Zero-K my self, since i found it, and that's a big word since i REALLY loved Sup-Comm and TA
So, i'm Sending you my whole energy n' metal reserves worth of cheers and strenghts so you can keep up the good work n' fire that update across the sky, like a healing rainbow, and hoping for these guys to come back together n' play some good Zero-K again as friends once more!
