Bugs are inevitable in large games, especially when the crux of those games involve many players being involved in a single game at once. Aside from some small bugs that are natural, Overwatch has had a rather smooth launch. But, with the launch of Competitive Mode, a new bug has arisen that is hurting some of the players.
The bug itself disconnects players during a game, but will let them rejoin mere moments later without command to the same game. However, regardless of the outcome of the fight, the player receives a loss and a decrease of their skill rank. This is causing much stress among the Overwatch community.
Battle.Net has been overloading with threads about this bug issue, and after a while, Blizzard responded that they know about the bug and are trying to fix it:
“We have some fixes coming (hopefully) next week.”
That reply was made on Saturday, so the fixes could come this week after some testing.
