Several times over the past week I have had my teammates disconnect (I believe 7 times) within the first 5 minutes of a game due to no fault of theirs. This is a glitch that I believe you are working on. Each time, this is i believe 7 out of my 8 losses, I have been given a loss and lost elo. Needless to say it is upsetting that my win % is taking such a hit when there is nothing that I or my teammates can do about it. Where have the days gone when a person would disconnect in the first 5 minutes and all losses and elo were cancelled for that game. There is no point in playing when you are down a person from the beginning of the game…

Reproduction Steps:

Here’s how to reproduce the problem:

  1. Have someone disconnect
  2. Play the rest of the game and of course lose.
  3. Quit the game because there is no point in playing it.


I would attach my games log but I do not know where to find it within the game.
