Are Temporary Matchmaking Bans Too Strict?
DBD is not the only game to penalize you by placing a temporary ban on matchmaking for disconnecting from a match. While this promotes teamwork and fair game play and prevents rage quitting, it presents an issue with those who have mediocre internet service. For those people who love playing the game and hate letting down their team they are banned again and again for something out of their control. I've personally seen these bans go as high as 24 hours. Is that too strict a punishment for getting disconnected from your own internet?
Also may I ask why you feel that way?
This is how I feel:
Bans should be in place. It is not fair to your team to suddenly disappear, making the odds less even. However, personally, i play the game everyday and maybe get disconnected 3 times at most. Does that warrant not getting to play for an entire day? I do not believe so. Yes it lets my team down. Yes it brings the game down. But so do campers. And tunnelers. And even loopers. I do none of those things. I don't harass people. I give props. I say good game. I do nothing malicious. And yet I am banned for an entire day from a game that I absolutely love for something that is out of my control. DBD sholdn't be limited to those with less strict NAT settings. It should be for everybody.
