Called it:Apart from picking your tank, drowning and jumping off cliffs are the only things in this game that you can control.
Think about that for a second.
Everything else is manipulated by WG.
Without implying that all or even a majority of (sub)average players do this, or that no above average players do this, I do believe that generally lower skilled players are prone to drown themselves.
Added to lower skill level is frustration about having no control about anything in the game (hence why they are (below) average). So the drowning and griefing is one of the only slithers of control they have over their actions in the game. For the rest they are just the playing ball of fortune, teams, MM and RNG.
Kind of sad, but somewhere understandable.
