We’ve all seen it happen: a funky player calling a vote to kick themselves out of a game. And we’ve probably all wondered: how did they do that? For many, the question remains a rhetoric, having left their thoughts just as quickly as they pressed F1 or F2. For others, such as yourself, it’s something you seek an answer to - perhaps out of curiosity, or perhaps that you can be the one to vote kick yourself from a game in the future. Whatever your destiny, you’re in the right place - because this article has all the answers…
