Ive DC"d due to so many glitches in this beta, being a beta i understand thats gonna happen, but couldnt there be a way to not loose Ranked points when glitches, hell even power outages cause us to Disconnect? Maybe if we Disconnect we take the lose, loose Ranked points, but when we are able to connect again have a code in the game that recognized it was a Disconnect, outside of our control, and give us the Ranked points we lost back onto our Ranking. Anyway. food for though. :)
@Synthetic....seriously? Its defiantly not my internet connection. Its defiantly a game issue as I dont DC from any other more complicated games I have where a bad internet connection would make them unplayable. Im hardwired in btw, Im not new to IT. If you think this game isnt going to crash when its out of Beta than you have more faith than I do in modern games. It took BF4 a whole year after release to get their stuff together before it was playable. Im not the only one who has had this issue as i have other friends who play this that DC more than I do. And if it was a connection issure on my end it would say Connection Failed of some sort. which it doesnt. Its more with the descrepencies with the Game Data....which it actually says that when DC'd. Or when the game just randomly decides it wants to crash in the middle of a match. Oh and you dont have the Option to connect to your own Region in the game. Not on xbox at least although i do have crossplatform capability disabled having that would only cause more issues not to mention increasing hackers and cheats. But if they have a Rejoin the match feature than that could defiantly be an alternative to my suggestion. So Kudos on that :)
@Tjord Im not upset this was just a suggestion and explanation of reason for something like this or a Rejoin Match as Sythetic suggest they may do which im all for. Yes i know its a beta. i even said that if you thoroughly read my OP. But again if you think that DC's are not gonna happen past the Beta stage I'll have to call you....overly optimistic lol. but heres hoping your optimism pays off ;)
And what this about free kegs for Ranked matches? ive never gotten one that ive noticed for ranked matches without having to use ore to buy them.
Even though losing points due to DC/game crashes hurts me as well, I would still vote for leaving it as it is. People use bugs and exploits to boos their standings... I find it hard to believe, that they will hesitate to dc intentionally just to save their "precious" points.
random dc due to glitch very often happen in beta.
you can dc due to client problem but can start next games after saw the end games UI. Some player exploit the bug. Ie: Discard SK, turn 1 use hero power 3 key card in deck, turn 2-3 play nothing, let the timer run out, turn 4 abuse bug. End up i dc and loses. Very obvious that player abuse the bug. He don't care, just discard any card and enjoy free win. Bug 2: Monster mirror match. Always got 1 side dc when 2 lanes have weather. But the bug happen randomly. Hard to fix.
reconnect mode or loses prevention are necessary to stop dc glitch or bug abuse.
This game doesn't force a server connection, so a minor bug means you are out of the game ;( If you are playing on Xbox I believe there is a Region option in the Console Settings that should match your current location (I used to have a bug and it didn't match). Another thing is that PC has a big advantage as both GwentTracker and GwentUP are not avaible on consoles.
I think the Rejoin option would solve the issue. At least it would give you a chance to rejoin if the DC was due to a glitch/game freeze
Xbox Ones Region setting has nothing to do with multiplayer region connection selection. Region connections are game based only. For instance Rocket League or Battlefield games. If the developer hasnt put in an option to filter what regions you want to be able to connect to than you get connected anywhere available.
