Ah.

Was he playing Ranked Arena?

If so, he may have been quitting out of frustration.

Out of those 16 games, in which ones did you lose connection?

One flaw with the banhammer is that it can’t differentiate between a “disconnection” and a deliberate quit.

I assume you were quitting because you were getting the same game mode in Action Sack over and over again?

You probably need a wired connection.

It’s the appropriate thread. If you want answers, you need to post there. This will almost certainly get locked as soon as one of the mods take notice. I’d be happy to discuss the matter with you in the appropriate venue.

So, if your son was banned for playing. How do you know what matches he quit out of, or if he’s lying to you?
Because, I’m not seeing ANY Ghost Race matches where he quit, I see one Rally Hog, but that was last week.
He’s not finished many Super Fiesta games, but I doubt he was disconnected as there’s no issues with Super Fiesta. Even people who run on .90Kbps can play Super Fiesta without disconnecting.

Also, your speed doesn’t mean anything in connection if anyone has 5mpbs then they’re able to play.
What’s your latency/Ping? How are you connected? Wired or Wifi? NAT Type? Packet Loss %?

If your Ping/Latency is over 100, that’s an issue.
If you’re connection is Wifi, that’s an issue.
If your NAT Type is Closed, that’s an issue.
If your Packet Loss % is anything but 0%, that’s an issue.

You haven’t really explained anything, all you’ve said is you’re taking the game back and you’re blaming the servers. Unless you’re giving a full detailed analysis for anyone to help you with, you’re not going to get results.

Please use the ban thread for all ban queries, as noted above thanks
