Just a few minutes ago my game crashed in a competitive match’s preparing time. The match was cancelled, I lost 50sr, and I was banned for 10 minutes. With 3 days of the season left to go, I really didn’t appreciate this setback.
Why is it that the game can’t detect intentional leaving vs crashing vs manually closing the application etc… and apply accurate punishment??? If the game can make a pop up window that says “Render device lost! Closing the application.” then shouldn’t it be able to also send a simple message (on failure) like this to the server so the server can say “Oh, this guy crashed. I WON’T take away 50sr and I WON’T ban him for 10 minutes, I’ll just cancel the match.”
Edit: I’m referring to the specific scenario where the game somehow closes during preparing. The standing penalty makes sense in the event of a player leaving mid-game, because the player’s team is put at a massive disadvantage.
