The Competitive Play mode of Overwatch was released last week but some players are having a troubled time. Developer Blizzard has been accused by a lot of players for handing out penalties in an inappropriate manner.

Some players have even been punished for mid-game disconnection. Blizzard, however, has assured that there will be a solution to this problem soon.

The players who disconnect from a match should actually be able get back into the game with no penalty if they reconnect successfully. But a lot of players are being penalized for the same reason at the moment, which affects their skill ratings and results in a loss, despite winning the game.

The game’s director, Jeff Kaplan, wrote on the Blizzard forums that a patch will hopefully come next week. He however didn’t divulge any further details in this matter.
