Why the hell am I losing SR when i got disconnected, came back and carried the rest of the game and won? This SR system is a joke and from what i hear im not the only one thats happened to. Its not fair to people who actually get diesconnected and it doesnt make sense for me to lose SR after winning. It be nice to get an actual explanation as to why the F this happens.
Same thing happened to me, and I got a cooldown on comp.
Unfortunately all disconnections and game crashes counts as leaving the match and will be penalized appropriately. Per competitive rules, if you are absent for more than two minutes or if you leave and return three times or more in a single match, the penalty stands regardless of match outcome. 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 start a new post in the Technical Support forum saying you completed these steps and additional advice can be provided. Good luck!
Well it seems pointless to return to a game if im just gonna lose SR so that ruins everyone else’s chances of winning since i wont be coming back to disconnected games. GG
