Hi, I’ve been playing comp all day long on ps4 and have not left or disconnected from any games. I’ve lagged out once or twice today And I’ve been banned for 2 weeks? Any time I lag out it is not deliberate, I live in rural Ireland and the internet here is awful, like less than 1mb a second. This is absolutely not my fault, I am not taking the blame for the fact the internet in my country is bad??? Like how is that my fault? Like it would make sense if I was deliberately leaving because I was salty or lagswitching but that’s not the case at all. I’m sorry but I refuse to wait 2 weeks to play again for something that’s not my fault.
If you received it a restriction, it was not from 1 or 2 lag outs. It takes a lot of reports then bungie reviews your connection history before placing the restriction. Here is Bungie's statement on connection restrictions along with their tips for improving the connection. [quote]Beginning soon, players with the most unreliable connections will receive an in-game warning. We know that connection quality is fluid, so don’t worry if you have occasional, temporary issues. If you receive one of these warnings, please visit the [url=https://www.bungie.net/en/Support/Troubleshoot?oid=12915]Network Troubleshooting Guide[/url]. If your connection does not improve, there are additional guides available that can help you in [url=https://us.battle.net/support/en/article/7871]diagnosing advanced network issues[/url]. If all else fails, contact your ISP for assistance. If your connection does not improve after an in-game warning, and we continue detecting a negative impact on other Guardians, restrictions from PvP activities may be applied to your account. If a restriction is applied to your account, you will be unable to participate in PvP for two weeks. If you continue to play on an unreliable connection that harms the experience of other players, that restriction may be extended.[/quote] ([url=https://www.bungie.net/en/Explore/Detail/News/47555]source[/url]) If for some reason you are not able to improve the stability of your connection, it is recommended to refrain from playing pvp activities as the negative side effects of your connection will lead to longer restrictions. Connection based restrictions: 1st is 2 weeks 2nd is 2 months 3rd is permanent [quote]Updated security policy and functionality so players who have been banned from competitive activities cannot access Gambit playlist[/quote] ([url=https://www.bungie.net/en/Explore/Detail/News/47677]source[/url]) [i]*I am not a Bungie representative, just a player trying to give the answers that are available.[/i]
