I was just starting a competitive game and the VS screen kept showing so I waited about 20 seconds and my game just froze so I waited longer and it was the same. So I restarted my computer and I lost a bunch of SR. The issue is not my computer my computer is fine. I know about 2 other people who have experience this issue. I went from 2660 ish to 2620.
Let’s remember to focus on your specific problems, comparing to other player issues is not likely to be the same cause as your own. 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. You can learn about this policy here:
Remember if you see the message, “Lost Connection to the Server” in the title screen or the message “Failed to Connect to Server” in red text in the text chat box, this means there is something that disrupted your connection to the game server and not a problem with the game server itself. There can be a variety of reasons this happens including those that don’t disconnect your computer from the Internet. There is great troubleshooting to start with that can most likely resolve most issues and I encourage you to check them out here:
As always if nothing in that guide works, please reply saying you completed these steps and additional advice can be provided. Good luck!
