It looks like there’s a rolling issue with players from certain regions having intermittent troubles with connecting to the game servers. In this case tonight it appears to be occurring within Southern Ontario.
The last three games in a row there’s been a “leaver” in the first 30 seconds of the game:
- It was another player.
- It was me. The queue timer stopped and it appeared to be loading the game, but instead I was just sitting in the lobby. And then I was hit with a 10 min suspension.
- I was able to connect but with another <30s “leaver”.
This clearly isn’t a coincidence.
Please OW devs, there must be a smarter system that can detect these things (ie not attempt to launch the game instance unless it can verify all players can infact connect) and also a mechanism to appeal unwarranted SR loss once connection issues are verified to be non-specific to individual IP’s (ie region-wide).
Looking forward to your response.
