Competitive is “straight-forward”.
There are NO BACKFILLS.
Your team is ABANDONED and they are Stuck with a 5v6.
This may sound harsh, but…yes, this penalty is Fair. For a person not taking care of their connection, their PC and their equipment. and stable equipment is a MUST. This means WIRED connections, and connections that are NOT being over-used by another occupant or rogue-ware on the machine that wasn’t cleaned out.
SIMPLE Guidelines for competitive.
- Use a WIRED and stable connection.
- study the “known team composition metas”.
- At least turn ON your team voice chat to LISTEN to the TEAM.
- Play quickplay 1 hour PRIOR To your match to see if your connection is stable.
- Check your network for any activity on it. If there is. Don’t Q.
DON"T LEAVE the match.
If you are MAD at your team for suggestions. Just know that they probably play this form of the mode LONGER and know what they are doing.
CLOSE YOUR BROWSER and clean your Cache out. All too often people have CHROME running in the background and it CRASHES the connection.
If you are listening to MUSIC. Use another device.
Check your microsoft updates settings…
I loath MS updates since they don’t keep people “Secure” and they spend more time wasting resources doing BACKGROUND downloads. The company makes it really difficult to discern whether or not it is doing something in the background and often it will start doing this at the WORST possible time.
Without the use of a “network inspection and auditing tool”. You may not even know that it is the issue of why the connection is “clogged”. What players NEED to do is call or email microsoft and tell them that “Forced updates is unacceptable”
, and my message to those that want actual “security” need to invest in an ACTUAL “hardware based” firewall…
Good luck! Hope this helps!!
