So, last night I booted up Gears 4 and decided to play a few matches of 2v2 before bed to make some progress on my RE-UP 10 for Gilded RAAM.
My first match went smoothly enough (besides the fact that we got stomped. ) but when in the lobby and voting for the map during my second match, the lobby dissolved and I got a pop-up saying something along the lines of “The connection to the game was lost”. When I tried to re-queue, another pop-up informed me that one or more players in my party had received a matchmaking ban for quitting and since I was playing alone, it was obviously me.
I’m fairly certain my internet didn’t spaz out because I was hanging out in party with a few friends while they played Apex and we were chatting the entire time this happened.
I also never quit games. Like, ever. Even when I’m gripping the controller in frustration because I’m the last person on my team and I have to keep taking beat downs from a full squad that scared the rest of my team away, I endure.
I’m not upset or anything but I am curious as to why this happened and would like to know if there’s anything I can do to ensure it doesn’t happen again. I don’t want lobby drops to affect my record on quitting, particularly after the big changes to those penalties recently.
I really appreciate any feedback I can get here and I want to say thank you for taking the time to read my post. With that I hope you’re all having a wonderful morning (or afternoon, Hi UK!) and that your day goes well.
