Being suspended for an accidental disconnect is dumb

A child I was babysitting for mannaged to unplug my power strip while i was playing a comp game, and when my modem finally gave me the chance to get back online, I return to get back in the match to find i’ve been suspended from comp? It’s only for like 30 minutes, but come on. I haven’t had a disco in MONTHS. and i’m being punished for an accident?

Whoever said that the system doesn’t punish you before 2 minutes is lying their [Redacted] off. It only took a minute 45 for my modem to start back up. And I suddenly couldn’t join the game anymore.

It’s for lack of a better word dumb as ever.

Deserved, you should have paid attention to the child like you were supposed to instead of playing some video games


Prehaps the game ended so that’s why you couldn’t rejoin.

And these measures are in place for a good reason.

Also, you’re babysitting someone and they are unplugging electrics? That’s rather concerning.

Normally I’d be on your side here but, yeah… you should have been watching that kid.


But you weren’t babysitting, you were playing a video game instead.


Unfortunately all disconnections and game crashes counts as leaving the match and will be penalized appropriately. The game server has no way to discern a legitimate disconnection or game crash from one that is forcefully caused by a dishonest player to bypass leaver penalties.
