I was recently playing a Horde Frenzy match, and I was kicked from the game but the timing seemed really odd, like it was the game itself kicking me. I came here to see if this has ever happened to anyone else, and what it might have been,
I was playing a public lobby, none of the players were allied with each other, and I was definitely pulling my own weight. In fact, you could say the only reason why we had gotten as far as we did was myself, I carried the weight of the team and collectively saved everyone, multiple times.
We were playing level 8, and the 2 bosses were a Matriarch and a Carrier. We downed the Carrier, but everyone was collectively having a hard time with the Matriarch. I was Lizzie, and was trying to get the Matriarch to freeze, wasn’t working too well, so I started buying Incindary grenades.
I kept running up and tagging the Matriarch, burning them that way seems to kill them faster than anything.
Anyway, at the end of the level I tagged the Matriarch one last time, it burned and died, and the second, literally the second it died, I was kicked.
This annoyed me for several reasons, 1) I did the majority of the killing. 2) Is it even possible to kick an individual player in a public lobby? 3) Did the game itself kick me? Did I break some unseen “rule” by killing a Matriarch in this manner?
I know what a disconnect kick looks like, this was an actual “you have been kicked” message.
Thoughts on what this was?
