Do you rematch?

No. I personally see no reason to rematch on quickplay. I can't switch characters, online is usually laggy, which makes the already bad buffer system worse, there's no guarantee I get the ruleset I want, and I always seem to run into spammers(this isn't just a Kirby problem) and people with a much higher skill level than mine. In turn, this makes the GSP system a personal hell for me because I always lose so much GSP since I get bodied all the time no matter what character I use, and yet on the rare occasion that I do win, I seemingly gain very little gsp in comparison. My highest gsp is 2mil with Kirby, and I've basically given up on trying to get elite smash. Trying for the past few months has stressed me out and I feel like I'm gaining nothing and that I'm getting robbed out of my time considering we have to pay for this mess.

There is no incentive to stay but if I had fun with someone then I stay for some games but that happens rarely since most of the times, the game is still laggy (just now Ihad a hideous connection).
Anyway, I try to stay against much better players as well since there's usually something to learn there. The flaw is that you lose tons of GSP and then you end up beating up lower-level players which is still ok but you don't learn much there, so I don't stay that long when facing a really good player.

I tend to rematch unless they were super laggy, their ruleset was dumb, or I don't feel like putting up with their bm anymore lol. Hell, I'll play the same person for hours if they show me that can they adapt/learn from their mistakes or if we can just goof off and try to style on each other. I really enjoy the rare occasions where I bump into players that are noticeably worse than me (but are willing to learn) and I try to subtly teach them how to improve (ex. punishing them for using the same getup option and showing them how they can mix up their options, I start rolling/spot dodging a lot so they can figure out how to punish rolls/spot dodges, etc.)

I almost always rematch win or lose.

One match is not enough for either player to truly learn a match. Bare minimum of 2/3 should be played, i find those who always leave after one match to be cowards who are scared that their opponent might have figured out their playstyle by the end of the first and has already devised a counter to it.

Seriously I wish quickplay forced a minimum of best of 3, where if you leave after only one match you lose double the amount of points you would have if you stayed for best of 3 and lost.

In QP, I tend to keep it moving unless I feel like the player I matched with had a bad bit of luck and isn’t a bad sport.

In BA, I will play as long as the other player wants to play, but will only drop out if it’s obvious I’m playing against a memester or someone looking to fluff their ego.

I've finally decided to try getting characters into Elite Smash since my friends have taken a break from Ultimate it seems. I eventually want to get all characters into elite smash, but I know this won't happen due to lack of time to play because even if I did win every match I'm not sure I'd be able to do it. So I basically never leave if I'm kicking someone's butt because I want my GSP to get higher. If I'm losing, I'm just too stubborn to leave because I want to learn how the other person is beating me whether it's something they are doing (which means someone else will at a some point too), or if I have an exploitable bad habbit. I try to tell myself to leave so GSP won't suffer, but I just can't resist a good fight.

Generally my matches in quick play go (when not fighting people with low GSP due to losing against someone far better than I am): I get my butt handed to me in the first match really hard (3 stocks not uncommon). Second match is pretty close. Then depending on who I'm playing, third to fifth match I start kicking their butts and they can't seem to get the same momentum they once had. I really do feel like my ability to control characters isn't the best, but I can definitely read how other people play their characters.

I don't rematch anymore. Used to do it in the past but since pretty much everyone leaves after one match if they win I am doing the same. I have pretty much stopped playing quickplay anyways. I just play quickplay if a character drops out of elite.

I sometimes rematch against people but Ultimate’s online sadly has this atmosphere of just playing one match to win/lose and quit the next. Very rarely would I find someone that would stay for the next game, which forces me to pretty much fall into this atmosphere as well. It would be fun if people would stay since you can adapt to your opponents over multiple games rather than just one match.

I almost always rematch at least once, pretty much the only time I don't is if there's a ruleset I don't like or if I'm straight up done playing. Honestly I think it's super rude not to rematch, especially if you win.

Got to get that Best 2 out of 3. Also, I will always rematch someone I lose against, that's the only way to get better. (So if you stomp, please let us get one more shot)
