You can actually get out of the spectator Mode by opening your Pursuits Tab, changing Weapons or deleting a Shader! If you notice that one of your players is missing, then message them! I had this happen to me that one player went into spectator Mode and I quickly messaged him to open his Pursuits Tab and he spawned back in. Spread the message so everyone knows how to get out of this.
Again I go back to my point of why points should be refunded because Bungie ARE aware of this and haven’t given notice, warning OR removed the mode temporarily!
They never refunded points for anything. They posted about the issues that are currently in the game and it's up to you if you still want to play Competitive or not. As there are solutions to the issues, it is up to your responsibility to risk running into these issues that don't happen every match. So knowing about the issues, you should have stayed away from Comp if you don't want to risk losing points.
Please point out where I said I LNEW of the issues? I stopped when i discovered they are aware and the only way I could find out was when bungie themselves responded to me
I have to admit that I misread your original post in which you first played 3 matches and then read about the issues. But you could have read about the issues after the first game. Anyways, I don't want to argue with you about Bungie's behaviour, I'm in the same boat with you, I could have lost my Match as well if I didn't know about the solutions, so I just wanted to make aware of the ways to solve this. However, Bungie never refunded any points under any circumstances as far as I know. So I would not expect anything as unfortunate as it is.
