So, I got in a MM, all nice and great first minutes, then a guy on red team start complaining about a team mate being AFK;  Some suggest his game may crashed; 

Seconds later, my game to freeze, then I am booted out; Try to re - connect, but the launcher says "servers down";

I wait half hour - servers still down.

I watch a movie, 1 hour later I check again - server up and running;

So I enter game, only to be "rewarded" by a pink message, punishing me for 3 games because of... "inactivity..."

WTF,  seriously ?!

Are we now responsible for your crap servers ?? I am booted out of game,  because the servers crash for 2 hours, then I am punished because " I leave early" ???

 Are no common sense here ???

The server didn't crash for 2 hours but it certainly suffered a stroke, with some parts of it being unavailable for longer than others. I opened a thread related to the same issue describing the situation and I was back in the game immediately, although the match I was playing at that moment was considered finished and a draw (every single one of the players disconnected at the same time, I assume). Maybe your mistake was closing the client and trying to use the launcher for the re-connection: the client tries to link directly to the game section while the launcher has to go through other parts of the server that were still down, thus saying so.


As for the pink status, although I'm sympathetic, it's better to just remove it by playing some operations and move on. And no, it's not that simple to write a routine that checks the server status for every single match and embed/call it at the proper place, not to mention the amount of extra computational time required (very little in itself, but it piles up). There seems to be quite another difference between both cases: while in yours the disconnections appear to happen one after another (someone was able to comment about them in open chat after all), in mine there's no hint pointing to that but to a simultaneous disconnection. Let's consider that the aforementioned routine is implemented: which situation could be considered as a server crash and which one as players having network issues on their end? As you can see, things aren't that easy to discern.

 

Salute.

Just contact support. Maybe they'll remove your pink status, maybe they won't. But that's what you have support for.

Explain in what way you got punished by being pink.

"bc of "inactivity" - after the servers crash for 2 hours, and booted me (and others) from a game right on first minutes. My launcher failed to re-connect several times with the message "server down". 

After 2 hours, when I am able to log-in back, I receive pink status 3 games because... "inactivity" :cap_cool:

I understood that.

The question was why you think being pink is a punishment. It's a warning, plain and simple, it has no other effect than making your name pink and reflecting any damage you do to teammates onto yourself, which obviously shouldn't be a problem.

Only once you go orange do you have limitations put on you.

Erm, the servers did not "crash for 2 hours", you might want to check what you type.

 

If the server would have been down for 2 hours, your posts would not be the only one, so thank your ISP for your pink status?

Last night the server was quite shitty, people complained about disconnections and even I had one. Suddently I was pushed back to the login screen at the beginning of a battle and when I relogued this happened:

I noticed the servers were a bit iffy last night, I'm entirely willing to believe someone gets pink this way.

 

But I don't see the big deal. Just play a couple games and you can work off your dunce cap. Do co-op if you feel self-conscious about it.

These are actually quite common in some genres. Especially if you fast-forward the parts where they talk. :cap_tea:

That's nothing. Do it twice and the punishment is you are obligated to wear full pink clothes for 3 days. Enforced with mandatory live webcams...

Erm, there might be 1 more, that I know of, regardless, if so, you are breaking the rules then, you should have posted there instead of opening your own, who do you think you are?

 

Either way, you suggesting me that I pay more attention to the forums is a sign of how little of a clue you have.

The servers burped twice on me yesterday, both times bumped to login, BOTH times the games were registered as DRAWS and everyone was bumped. Both times it lasted only a few minutes.

In the games after the server burps the players all said it had happened to them with Draw results and none complained about going pink, I certainly didn't go pink.

 

More likely that your ISP or PC connection at home was the issue since you went pink, that or there's something not entirely 100% true.

the fact one get punished by system for a failure on the game server IT IS an issue. But obvious one need more then a brain cell to realize that. If that not bother you, not my fault.

Unlike others, my game DO NOT end in a draw. I was impeded to log back, despite a dozen of attempts, with the official page of the (new) launcher claiming loud and clear "server unavailable" ! 

More then one hour later, when the launcher stated "server online"  , I receive the pink penalty . This IS an issue for me.

And my ISP its ok, I got fiber connection with 250/250Mb , and a constant 30-35 ping, here in Portugal.

I can even bring here the replay, must be saved on my system. And yes, did I mention our team was wining ? And the crash occurred (for me) at half game, and I did some damage & sailed around (as opposed to stay AFK, with zero damage & no moving at all, reason for "official" PINK punishment ?

Here a sample seconds before  we all crash; the servers (Eu) went down at 24.08.20012 at 02.01h, GMT . And stay dawn more then an hour,  at least for Portugal, and if we can trust the info displayed on the launcher. 

Here the proof more where affected:

So you ISP stopped working, since it was only you, or your region. That is why your game was not a draw.

 

Servers were not down for an hour, we would have had 2-3000 posts complaining the hamsters died and needed replacement ASAP. You understand that people here play the game too?

 

To the picture, so, an AFK midway is a sign that the server collapsed, ok...

 

Just a heads up, you might want to cut on the amount of mods, that is also a source of issues in the game.

The big issue with this unfair and faulty system is simply too harsh when you get disconnected due to some uncontrolled whatever the reason problem, get pink AND you can't play anything other than coop. Ok you get back in try to play to get rid of the bias status and whoopsie it happens again and again and you get more heavily punished than before and before you know it you get banned for something that you just can't control nor is your own fault. That is [edited] coding!! And on top of that, you open a ticket to plea for your "rule violation" and the answer you get is that they cannot remove your status and you have to play to remove it. I call [edited]. They put the code there, it means that they can remove/edit the code.

 

Yes I am aware that they need some sort of punishment for leaving the game or being afk and I do support it, BUT not immediately getting banned from random games for ONE lousy uncontrolled disconnection. Why not have the same punishment system like friendly fire(being able to play random battles at least)? why not just remove friendly fire feature as they have done in operations?

It sucks when the server farts, yes, but being Pink isn't a harsh penalty.
