Ridiculous Connection Suspention

I love playing Overwatch as a competitive sport, but it’s getting ridiculous to actually play the game without getting punished. Within the past day alone, my client has disconnected me from the game server causing my account to be suspended multiple times. When I finally manage to open the game back up, I don’t even have the option to rejoin the game and try and stop myself from looking like a jerk for leaving and save my own SR. No I just have to take the suspension, SR loss, and negative connotation of being a leaver because the game randomly disconnects me. Please at the very least allow me to rejoin these games.

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. 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 reply saying you completed these steps and additional advice can be provided. Good luck!
