Over the last week or so, I have experienced several breakdowns in my connection while playing games online. This has resulted in a rapid and continuous drop in points and levels. Annoying, but, more to the point, frustrating, because other connections are not affected (emule, email, internet in general, etc.)
Is this a generalised problem? Is there an easy solution? Should players be penalised when a broken connection obliges them to drop out of their game?
It's quite revealing to see that although some players manage to go up levels, the rating system does not fluctuate much and rarely goes beyond 1800 points.
All comments appreciated.
