    Default "Has joined" but "left" and not "has left"

    Hello,
    I play many online games and there are always those messages:
    "Player has joined the game" and "Player left the game".
    Actually I can fully understand the "has joined" because it affects the game - he comes and he is there.
    However, why isn't it "has left" as well?
    The player leaves the current match, which is still running, and it has influence on the match - because he is missing.

    Cheers!

    Both are possible. I prefer what you do-- has left.
