Why are there bans for Disconnects?

I disconnected from a competitive match and rejoined, our team won, now i face 8 more minutes of competitive suspension? sad situation

If you fail to return within two minutes from leaving, the penalty stands regardless of the match outcome. More details to this policy can be found here:
