Really? I literally was in the middle of the game, everyone got a black screen. Half of us DC’ed. Closed game and reopened twice. Could communicate with the team and world chat of the game but clicking “Rejoin Match” didn’t take me back in. Restarted the game. Thrice. And then it just decides screw it and now I’m suspended with SR lost. Really?
I tried to join a game 1 hour later after the last rage quit and it didn’t even join. Just stopped searching and says im banned from competitive for 30 mins and it deducted SR.
This really sounds like you have very persistent internet issues of some sorts. 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.

For you based on the description, please take the time to find out where the problem lies by running a WinMTR test and post the results here for evaluation.
Open the WinMTR folder and select the 32 or 64 bit version. Choose whichever one corresponds to your version of Windows.
Run the WinMTR.exe
Type the IP address you want to trace in the “Host” field. To get the correct IP you will actually need to open up the game and go Practice Vs AI or Quick Play and if you are on PC hit Ctrl+Shift+N and it will bring up the ingame network diagnostic graph, or go to Video > Options > Display Network Performance Graph if you are on any platform including Console. In the top left corner is the IP address you want to run WinMTR to.
note When looking at the IP it will show up ingame as something like 126.96.36.199:12345. You will want to leave the last 5 digits and the colon at the end off and the IP you want to use is just the 188.8.131.52
Once you notice the connection issue while playing, play for about 6 more minutes, minimize the game and click on “Stop”.
