People get attacked on early in the game and then quit as they have not a chance of winning anymore.

I think it is idle to speculate on reasons why people choose to abandon games. If we want to find out, we could presumably have an auto-email questionnaire sent to everyone who goes inactive in a game asking why they dropped out with multiple choice questions and a write-in box.

I think much more useful to accept that high drop-out is the result of it being possible for players to enter unlimited numbers of games at no cost and being able to abandon them with no penalty.

So you can address the problem in one or a combination of three ways: 1) limit game sign-up (e.g. maximum 1 game sign-up per day or per week); 2) impose a significant per game cost; or 3) impose a significant penalty for abandonment.

I don't think that (2) or (3) are realistic options. (2) would stifle play, and (3) would often be unfair. Which leaves the obvious option of doing something to prevent people from spamming multiple sign-ups and then vanishing.
