I dont even bother applying for leadership anymore due to VTK and TK is reif and defn turns people off the game.
This is kind of the case for me to, although i did still go ahead and apply for leadership,
One of the most annoying and disheartening times i have ever had on MAG was when i was playing domination,
I had a leadership role and and as soon as the game started there was a vote to kick me and we hadnt even seen any enimes yet,
I said to the squad 'instead of trying to kick me tell me what you guys want done', but no one said anything and the vote to kick me started over and over continuously, then i said can anyone tell me when i can drop airstrikes and where is the best place to drop them on the map, one american guy started talking and giving me some advice trying to help me out,and when the vote to kick me started again he even spoke up about it,
ok so he swore at the people trying to vote me off but it was something like '***** are you guys retarded the games just started',, that sort of thing,
Anyway, i said to the american im going to give the role up and if he wanted the leadership role, he did tell me to just ignore them and keep it as its the only way im going to learn, but all the votes to get me kicked were just putting me off my game, So i gave it up and the american guy got the role, then they started to try and vote him off and after about 5 minutes of this the american guy just left the game, so i backed out as well and i think that was one of my last games.
Everytime i think about playing the game i keep remembering people trying to vote me off so i just end up playing something else, i bought the DLC that came out recently but still havnt played it yet.

This is a major problem with MAG, the vote to kick system cant be dropped as it is neede for people who just try to bully others with verbal abuse, team kills, etc.
i was in a game recently with some of the OPC guys (me and 2 other <@> members and one other opc) as a warm up before monday event, as soon as the sobatage started the leader got a vote to kick, and he said, "wat did i do, why are you trying to kick me".
I just reassured him, "dont worry, they just want to be leader themselves, you want get kicked as long as you dont do anything too stupid, there are 4 of us and we dont vote to kick for no reason, just keep at it and ignor them"

I joined a game (that took about 15 min to join) and the leader started telling people to vote for people, within 1 minute about 4 of the original people including me where kicked due to other following blindly. Wasnt even a squad full of people from the same clan. I paid for a game and IMO nobody else should be given the right to kick me or anyone else in this manner.

I'd like to add an addendum.
If after a certain number of votes to kick (say 3) The person who has been voted to be kicked off is immune for the rest of the game.
Was just playing Domination. And all I saw from beginning to end was "A vote to kick your SL has been intiated" "Your SL has not been kicked" "A vote to kick your SL has been intiated" "Your SL has not been kicked" ad nauseum
At the end I switched my mic on and told whoever kept on initiating the kick was a sad pathetic little loser with no life.
