I feel like I'm seeing a lot more intentional disconnects recently. And from higher graded players. Did rage quitting lose some of the punishment it used to have?
There is no DC penalty as of right now.
Even the time to join a new game one? That would explain why there are so many rage quitters then. The fact that they flood in the moment the dc penalties are lifted proves the system works.
DC'ing is the best perk in the game right now :D
You don't lose pips or MMR so that's what happens
Actually what would be cool if there was a disconnecting version of mmr as well so they get prioritized to match making with each other the more they disconnected.
That would generally be the best way to handle intentional disconnects.
Put them all together in their own penalty queue but then again innocent people would get caught up in it since some form of DC (unplugging WLAN/Router and so on) can be differentiated from a general connection cut.
But i am still clueless why server sided connection losses can't be determined but is probably only due to my missing knowledge on this specific IT topic.
Well sort of. It doesn't change behavior like they intend it to
The worst part is that we cant push for a harsher DC penalty. All thanks to cheaters that could be running rampant with no repercussions.
