I was playing a ranked game and when I died, I got this message saying, “Your rendering device has been lost! Application closing!” and then I disconnected from the game. I don’t want to get suspended for something I couldn’t control so please fix this.
Technical issues are treated the same as intentionally leaving. There is no way for the game client to know if you pulled the plug on your computer, had a piece of hardware stop working, or disconnected due to your ISP.
