Ok, I read explanation of the penalty system and i DON’T believe that BLIZZ cannot know if the player LEFT or DISCONNECT.

If they HIT , ESC and then use LEAVE GAME, they are using a BUTTON from your game, so YOU surely KNOW if they are LEAVING on PURPOSE.
From the last 15 games on COMP I have like 6-7 games with TROLLS and LEAVERS, now the % of games with people leaving is TOO HIGH.
So, for sure you could know if a player is disconnected or leaving, if you see lost packets with the client (leaver) you understand that he is having trouble, even people that have problems always try to reconnect. So you could put that kind of category on the system.
Is very unprofessional and easy in 2018 just to SAY: We could not know if a people is leaving or having disconnection issues.
I’m System Engineer myself so I understand kids can buy that response, but the older and smarter players not.
So AT LEAST, try to put a log on when a PLAYER HIT “LEAVE GAME” so you at least can punish them like 200SR and ban like 15 days.
COMP is not ENJOYABLE anymore. Overwatch is not only the PROs and the league they are semi pros players that want to reach high on COMP to reach PRO levels.
Even you can put a minimum hours of the heroes so people cannot use on COMP a HERO that he is never used before.
I think on the profile had to BE a RECORD for the DISCONNECTIONS and for the LEAVING PART. And a part then you see how many penalties a players have received.
