Instant logout

General
It's only a twenty second wait, why isn't it like exiting the game where you have an option to exit straight away rather than sitting there for 20 seconds.

It would be pointless because your character would still be in the world meaning you would not be able to log a different one in for that 20 seconds. If logging a different character forced the first character to log out it would be abused in pvp which is why the 20 second timer exists in the first place.

There may be just a technical reason for it or maybe to avoid people to quickly logout when they see large numbers of enemy players coming for them :)
It's so you can't easily leave combat instantly when things go bad.

The "exit now" button when exiting the game just closes the game. Your character will still be online until the 20 seconds have passed.

People do this anyway to escape being killed by me, not sure if it's doing alt f4 or just exit now but I can't hurt them or they just disappear in front of me.
