Altho i dont agree that you get no gold when other player forfeits, i think thw problems is with all the seal clubbing that happens right now.
The unbalance of streght in mech builds is huge.
A legendary mech has no chance against a myth one. The problems is that you end up against very underpowered oponents. The matchmaking sidtem needs to be revised, so that top players fight top players( myth vs myth), because atm there is no fair play in mayches. And if it remains like this will only discourage players from pvp.
Sure make a matchmaking sistem that counts the strengh of the build and faces him against equal oponent, and thus you would not have so many forfeits. I can understand a player that looks at your 2000+hp, 61 res mech and says "fack this...im out of here, what a scam"... and quits. You should get some gold, but not a full win since you just scared him without playing. This also should discourage seal clubbing... aka beating players in 2 moves.
