This has happened several times now, sometimes with more than one player in the same game.
Sometimes you just get stuck with players who keep going down or go down at the first sign of a horde, don’t seem to know that the right mouse button is for blocking, etc. Naturally you conspire with your fellow players to get rid of these guys before they sink the run, and get some better players in. The problem is that once they are kicked they just come right back. Then you have to get all distracted initiating another vote kick while you are trying to fight.
Are they doing it on purpose?
Is matchmaking putting them back in when it really shouldn’t?
Is the game trying to be more challenging by teaming us up with recruit level players?
