Pink player due to dc

A number of people have reported experiencing game crashes and disconnects since the last update.  I've experienced a few myself, but what pees me off is that I've been turned pink because of it.  I was a standard player and had just logged in to a Co-op battle when I suffered a dc/crash.  This was yesterday, and have just logged back in for the first time since then this evening, to be welcomed by a message saying that basically I am now pink due to a) Team damage or b) logging off early or c) inactivity, and that I now have to play 5 battles to restore my 'clean' status.  Well it wasn't due to team damage, as I never got to fire a shot, and I very much doubt it was due to inactivity because I wasn't logged in.  I can only assume that my crash was interpreted by the game as leaving the battle early.  I would think that the devs would include some sort of check that the player had acknowledged the warning you get when trying to leave a battle early before blighting them with pink status.  Or maybe the game really did consider me to be inactive despite my complete departure from the game.  Who knows?  All I know is that Wargaming needs to short this crap out!

So you have a game crash early in the game before you fired any shots. Then you don't restart the game and just continue to play, but instead you shut the game down and ignore it. Which basically means you left the game early. And now you are surprised you get punished for leaving the game early? :fish_palm:

 

I had some crashes lately too (about one each day) but I never turned pink for it. So apparently the system is working perfectly as intended. Good job, Wargaming.

I tried to get back in but I couldn't.  So no, I didn't just leave the game but was punished for a problem not of my making.  If you believe that is working as intended I pity you when you come across a similar problem and don't get resolution.

5 battles? isn't "first offense" just 2? or you getting yourself pink repeatedly? :Smile_teethhappy:

 

And yes - as it was already said - restart the client and log back in, keep playing the battle you already started.

 

I can say exactly what @Commander_Cornflakes said, so instead I'll just quote him so you can re-read the same sentence:

You're making assumptions that I didn't try to restart the client.  I tried repeatedly to log back in, but kept getting a 'Connection Error' message and couldn't re-join the battle.  Yes I had been pink previously, but had cleared that particular misdemeanour, for which I hold my hands up.  To get a second helping of pinkness through no fault of my own seems a little harsh.
