I just had a disconnection from Steam in a game where I had 3900 score vs 2300. Servers recorded that as my loss which, based on score and status in the game, is stupid decision to take.
I have no idea what caused the disconnect since my internet was working at that moment - I checked immediately. Having a loss recorded in situation like this makes no sense. At least discard the game result, instead of assigning the loss.
I think it’s fine to give a loss if a player drops, your suggestion would generate possible exploits since it’s not that hard to artificially boost the score and then drop when in losing position.
I know it’s frustrating to drop when in winning position, but losing few points is not the end of the world.
This happened to me while i was streaming, lost like 38 points, my internet was fine since i was streaming and had other websites open and running, game just froze until it dropped me.
The servers were ukwest and australiasouth, clearly it has to be with their servers.
