Been playing for a few years but think, internet going off or game crashing shouldn't really give you a penalty.  have been issued a 3 game pen :-( .

Question: How is the game supposed to differentiate between an accidental and a deliberate disconnect?

Answer: It can't. If the connection goes down because of provider or PC issues, or if someone deliberatly pulls the plug, it will look exactly the same to the game server. There is literally no difference in the logs.

 

Your penalty isn't really one unless you are now limited to co-op play. Being pink is just a warning.

Hey fx!

 

There won't be a penalty if this is only happening every once in a while but if your internet connection is so unstable, then it'll have a very big impact on your gameplay and be an issue for your team. You still get to play the game but with coop the impact should be lower - if you think that there's an issue with the connection to our servers that is unrelated to your provider, you can open a customer support ticket and attach a ping plotter, so we can take a look into how to help you: https://eu.wargaming.net/support/en/products/wows/help/

Surprised noone mentioned - being pink is NOT a penalty, it's a WARNING. Being orange is a penalty

I don't mind having a warning if you have done something wrong, but still feels its wrong when it`s out of your control. It's like being booked in football for a fowl and you were nowhere near the man.

It's more like getting stuck in traffic on the way to the game.

Not strictly your fault but your team is still down a player and the coach might give you a warning.

being pink can happen for a lot of reasons - it's kind of offensive when you are the innocent party but 'ship' happens.

as Wikatis_LV says, orange would be the real penalty although how anyone could go orange unless that was intentional is beyond me (never having gone Donald colour myself, lol)

If your internet goes down often, you ruin the game for 11 other people every time it happens, it doesnt matter to them why you are afk.
