Like the title says, I just logged in after a 4 day rest from the game and was greeted with a warning from Competitive play saying that I’ll be perma banned, I’ll admit I have lost connection a few times but rejoin almost right away. Either I got a ban warning for another player or something is pretty f’d up atm. I mean QP is one thing for leaving a lot, but I stay to the end in comp play win or lose.
Blizzard are you SURE you’re punishing the right people? Or just handing out random ones?
If you did, that is not because of leaving matches (or disconnecting from them. This is a warning stating that your behavior is in violation of the Blizzard In-Game Code-of-Conduct and if you continue this behavior you will be subjected to appropriate silences, suspension, or account bans (based on the severity and frequency of your behavior).
If you did not get that specific dialog, can you share a screenshot of the warning that you are referring to? (Or at least try to describe the text displayed and what colors the graphic is in.)
All disconnections and crashes do count as leaving and will be penalized. It takes as little as 5 leaver violations to trigger a season ban, and getting three season bans in your entire history of playing will result in a permanent ban from the Competitive Play mode.

No it wasn’t a player reported message, it was one that suddenly appeared in chat channel, I walked away after starting the game to do something, came back to the PC to see that warning from competitive play warning about leave too many times and a potential ban for no reason.
I also recently started playing competitive again, after not playing since season 18 if I’m right.
