Banhammer for bad connection!?

So I was just playing a game of breakout and I got dropped from the game, which is nothing unusual since this game has issues, and I was a little peeved because I had used a legendary req that I basically just wasted, but even better was they brought me to a screen where I was told that the banhammer had struck on me for a poor connection to the server… So how is that my fault? Maybe get better servers or have the option to choose the server with the best connection for you. So stupid.

For whatever reason (quitting, idling, disconnecting, etc.), your matchmaking history shows a significant number of unfinished games, which likely caused your ban.

2/2/2016 - 3 DNF

1/26/2016 - 1 DNF
1/20/2016 - 4 DNF
1/19/2016 - 4 DNF
1/18/2016 - 4 DNF
1/17/2016 - 5 DNF
1/16/2016 - 1 DNF
1/15/2016 - 3 DNF
1/7/2016 - 1 DNF
1/4/2016 - 1 DNF

I have quite a few disconnects on my end too, as my internet was imported from Idaho (it’s sprouting, the roots are everywhere D:)
I’ve only been banned once for like an hour because, at least as far as I know, Won a FFA match, hit Diamond 1, and got DC’d as the Victory Animation was halfway through. Now I’m down to Platinum Six and have only been able to find one two arena matches so far today. Warzone playlists are fine, but the Arena seems to be a barren Wasteland.

Yeah that looks about right, sad part is maybe 1 of those is from me actually quitting the rest I just drop out of games randomly all the time. Super frustrating because quite a few of those matches we were winning.

There’s not much I can say about connection issues.

All you can do is make sure that everything is up to snuff in terms of your local network setup and ISP. If it continues to be a problem, try posting in the support forum. Good luck.

The same thing has happened to me. I’m new at online gaming and I quit one game of Arena, the very first time I was checking out online gaming, I got smeared and quit after I couldn’t even get a shoot off before dying many times. I did not know the rules or anything. Since then I learned the rules about quitting and everything else. I’ve never quit a game since but I get kicked off the game randomly. Today I went to play a game of Warzone and didn’t even get into the game, it frozen at point where its collecting the players and locked up my controller and I’m not able to do anything. I didn’t go any further. I checked Waypoint on my laptop and sure enough another DNF. All the DNF’s I have on my record are because of this happening. I’ve only quit one game. “Very Frustrating!”

Yup. Happened to me for the first time yesterday. 40 min no Arena. :frowning:
