that normal players are getting online penalties for being disconnected constantly.
I run this game at 60fps on my PC with 10 ping, but my online matches are so slow that I recently got temporary banned with a -1k LP loss after so many 40002 disconnections.
In addition, the 4-5 connection setting doesn’t prevent me from being paired against people on the other side of the world, maybe they have 4-5 bar connection, but that doesn’t mean we’re going to have a good match, low ping across the globe is unrealistic. I legit played against the UK, Brazil, then Japan in a row from the southwest US area.
This game literally makes itself unable to be played, and punishes me for trying to play in spite of its faults.
I know others have had these experiences, including being given online penalties.
