so what just happend is my wifi disconnectd for about 2 seconds
and of course i have to log in.
but this was also in a ranked game so you know what happens after leaving a ranked game loss of sr and penalised
idk why just because my wifi cut out i dont get to rejoin because the match is too early so they reset it.
Who the hell plays online multiplayer over wifi? That’s just asking for lag and disconnections. Wifi data can only travel one way at a time (it can’t send and receive packets simultaneously), not to mention it’s horribly prone to interference.
Lay a 30 meter cable around your house if you have to, just ensure you use wired for online games. Period.
I’ve had experiences where my electrical company shut down the lights for no reason…
That happened this morning. It was dark for a good ~3 hours.
The weather was perfect and sunny, so don’t try to blame me lol
Uhhh my wifi has never cut out, and I’ve never disconnected from a game of Overwatch. 35mbps/ 30mbps up. If people join a competitive game knowing full well their service is not reliable and disconnect that’s the same as leaving intentionally imo.
Your bad internet may not be your fault but subjecting 11 other people to it is.
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.
