The "DC bug", proof.
I hope you are having a nice day.
(I'm not a native english speaker, so... sorry for any typos)
By some months ago, I'm pretty sure everyone heard the "stories" about people being unfairly disconnected from the game and getting penalized. But no one seemed to show any proof of it. So here it is.
First I'll show you how the game behaves when you don't get internet connection, then the bug and the proof.
1 - No internet connection.
When the internet is not avaliable, the game prevents the player from joining another game going back to the title screen.
2 - The bug
When this happens the game kicks you out of the match, gives you a DC penalty, but doesn't say that there is no internet connection.
3 - Proof.
This happens to streamers as well, but their stream does not go down, it doesn't even change.

By the last month I've been banned for 72h 3x in a row, but have not clicked the disconnection buttom once (that happened because the decay rate is very low, I would try play a day after the penalty and have the bug again. Now I'll have to wait until 04/24 to be able to play in my main account). I'm not attacking the DC penalty, I think it's fair, but with a bug like this in play? When people can just kill themselves on hook... It makes me feel that it's a bit unfair to some people.
There is a sub-section (https://forum.deadbydaylight.com/en/categories/DPP_RankUpdateError) to the forum dedicated to this, but the mods didn't say anything about it there.
Discord still works when this happens. I have people in my family that can still use the internet normally when this happens, playing even LoL with no issue right by my side.
Do you know what I think? I think we did a pretty good job so far.
Stay safe out there.
