How Do We Deal With Lost Credits, XP, Flags, Camos etc. Due To Server-side Crashes?

As the title says. How do we?

Game crashed 3 times in 10 mins in 2 different battles. I know the issue is not the connection because I'm streaming 1080p video at the same time I'm playing the game.

I'm still trying to get in. Restarted the game and have been hitting the "Connect" button for the last 5 mins all the while still streaming video at 1080p.

So what happens to all the income, XP, free XP, flags, camo etc. that's been lost due to server-side connection issues? Do we just forfeit it?

Doesn't seem right if it is.

Edit: I finally got in and now it's two losses in a row in battles I couldn't play in. If you look at my recent WR, you will see that it doesn't happen often. I ask again; what happens to all the lost stuff?

It's lost, consumed.

Dr. Pepper over vanilla bean ice cream in a glass goes a long way to mitigate such emotional distress.

Just not right.

And will I also get penalised for not participating in a battle too? Talk about insult to injury.

Only if you consider being pink 'penalised', even though it doesn't actually do anything, being pink.

Sigh.

It's a joke @Lert.

Like how people in the movies say it's going in the permanent record but it doesn't actually do anything?

I am aware. Why did you think I answered your meme with a meme?

Well, I thought your meme looked a bit... disinterested, jaded.

Figured maybe you didn't get the joke or something.

All cool :)

I'm not a very interesting person and my meme game reflects this.

Just because you were able to stream a 1080p video doesn't mean that you had sufficient internet bandwidth to connect to WG WITHOUT increasing latency. Remember your internet pipe is limited to a certain download/upload limits determined by your ISP. If you consume 90% of it streaming a video, then the remaining 10% may not be enough to connect to anything else at the speeds you and/or the server expect.

I've been playing this game, streaming video, downloading stuff and talking to people on TS/Discord all at the same time on this connection for 3 years. 

I know what I'm saying.

Just because you haven't changed your Internet plan does not mean your ISP has stayed the same. In the last 3 years there's been more and more VoIP/digital phones and increases in their "base" customer use (remember 3 years ago 12MB was considered as fast as you needed - now it's they're offering 300MB service in most areas). Your pipe to the ISP may be the same, but I'm betting they haven't increased their inbound pipe 10 fold. Also remember, you're also competing with all of your neighbors for the same bandwidth that goes to either the CTMS/Dslam or fiber switch. I know most service providers are slowly upgrading that infrastructure because it's $$$ and they can't really raise rates when there's so much competition. In short most ISP's have very little headroom in various neighborhoods. At peak times, you will get nowhere near what they've sold you.

If you're on one of the Comcast companies, it's pretty bad because they're really behind on upgrading their equipment yet they're rolling out Digital TV service (to "secure" their channels) as well as VoIP. They're severely overextended.

Hey,

You can try to change the ISP frequency, eg in the same street, neighbor and stuffs check to see how busy is frequency per usage and then test in out in afternoon when it busy. Normally, you get up to 15 frequencies and you can select the one not busy
