Never seen before, how long did you play? Did you play at all?

no we went from the waiting room to... whatever this was. after that we all disconected several times untill we refreshed and got booted from that match.

Another reason I don't like the PvP system. The bugs in it cause you to lose even when you can't play because of those bugs.

yes ive gotten disconected and such before and lost points, but the total of the points lost by everyone in this weird match is enough to make a person laugh.

That is strange, I think that has happened once to me, but I am not sure...

were there any matches going on in the 50-99 bracket? It kinda sounds like something that happens when a high level gets put into the wrong bracket match, the system throws a fit and keeps relogging you. Other than that no idea, if you manage to replicate it, or suspect a way to replicate it, we can put it down as a bug to be fixed.

I would suggest to ask the dev to remove the lost in points. This in all situation.

95% of the times, I lost point because of bugs in the game itself, which is kind of really stupid.

The other 5% (happened like 2-3 times ?), you have a totally unfair dom match, when you get pinned down in less than 2 minutes without the possibility to get any base (thanks to vindi port), and somehow get unlucky and don't score a kill. Any ballanced match you will never be in that situation. So in a way, it's still kind of a bug in the system: it's a limitation/fail of the match-making algorithm.

Last point: if losing points is to avoid people logging in with alt or being afk, well, both are still happening, and in those cases losing points don't solve the issue (an alt can have a score of -500, no problem with that, and whether being afk is wanted or not, you can still actively destroy a dom whenever you want and managing not to lose points - so the punishment don't solve anything).

So all in all, I don't see any good reason to make us lose points.
