Just need to air my disappointment on what just happened to me. So I am in the menu trying to join a competitive. It doesn’t let me, and the timer is stuck at 15 seconds. I only get thrown back into the menu. I try to join a new competitive game, still the same issue. I wait like 10 seconds wondering what is going on, and suddenly it says I am queued properly and the game launches.
Ok cool I think, it was just a glitch. And so I enter the game, select Rein to play and even get as far as saying hi in chat and suggesting a strategy. BOOM I am kicked out of the game (before the round even starts) saying I lost connection to the server. The game is “trying to reconnect”. No luck. I exit the game to restart it fast to rejoin as fast as possible. I get into the game, but there is no “rejoining” game. I guess the 10 seconds grace period had already passed. Instead I now see I am banned for 10 minutes from competitive.
Thanks! There was absolutely no technical issue on my part as I had YT running behind the scenes which I always have and that did not complain anything at all.
I have had my account for almost two years now, and NEVER before lost connection to a game, and I have NEVER been toxic, only constructive. I have been adamant to report players who misbehave and tried to work actively towards making the game a better experience for everyone.
I am just stressing the fact that my account is (or should be) keeping in a relatively high standard by just looking at the stats and the activity of it. Having played hundreds of hours without any DC it still doesn’t give me the benefit of the doubt that maybe, just maybe, this particular DC was unintentional and should not be subject to a penalty.
Now I have a ban marker on my account for all eternity for no reason at all. Thanks Blizz, I feel very rewarded… sadface
