How Unsporting Coduct Works?

So, I keep getting unsporting coduct penaltys when I play. The las two battles where last night with my Lyon, and my Algerie. I lost the game in my cruiser but won in the Lyon. What could I have done wrong besides dye and do damage. Is this some sort of reprieve from players?

 Do you mean from other players reporting you in a battle ? This only effects your Karma which really is not something to worry about .  Or is this another form of penalty ?  As Awiggin posted above .

No, its fine to suspect me, but I swear I was just playing, shooting and when I quit, I was already sunk.

This, but we really need some screen shots of the message(s) to be able to help. When you die make sure to wait for the you are dead message.

  This is probably it .  I  ;  personally have stopped leaving after dying because of this bug/glitch happening to someone I know . And I usually do anyway ( when not in a division ) to watch and possibly learn something .

That sounds good, I am rather quick with the escape key. And I have no info from the small button on the bottom right.

pretty sure leaving a battle after you  are dead is not the reason , no matter how early . how do you know you got unsporting conduct penalty ?     Did you look at chat?   I would say planting yourself behind an island (specially near a cap) while your team pushes might warrant a penalty? also in a loss if your ship is near full health people dont seem to like that.

I hate the island camping and wish the stop and go mechanic would be changed to discourage it honestly. I also find camping in the back super boring. I like play the game and not sit. Alas I will reconsider my habits.

Various people have been claiming they have gotten a penalty for leaving after they were dead, so it's a possibility. WG is famous for bugs that only effect part of the player base.

Not happening here though.

There is a glitch/bug that causes players to get penalized for leaving the game, despite being dead. I found that waiting for a minute after death, before leaving to port, solved the issue for me.

However, without screenshots, it is very hard to tell where the penalty is coming from. You may have accidentally shot an ally without realizing it. Next time you get penalized for a game, look at the information (the "i" icon at bottom right corner so long as you were not logged out when the game ended), and look specifically at the "detailed report" I believe it is called. If any ship you did damage to, is pink, that means you dealt damage to a teammate.

IIRC you can report someone for unsportsmanlike conduct. I would venture a guess that someone is reporting you.

I'm not saying that there isn't a bug or that is not happening with the anti-abuse system because there have been a number of people report it happening on the forums here, but I've tried to recreate it for the past week and haven't been able to do so.

As soon as I'm dead, I hit the exit back to port button. I have yet to receive an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty.

I'm thinking it has more to do with distance traveled on the map or if a player does no damage, which is what I'm going to test next.

You could learn to spell, the correct word is DIE. What you have typed says you spent the game changing the color of some fabric

Probably players reporting you. Ever since people figured out that "Plays badly" doesn't actually do anything, they started reporting players for "Unsporting conduct" when they play badly.

The problem is, you may not be able to reproduce it.

Over the years I've seen various bugs come and go with patches, they don't seem to affect everyone, just a subset of the population.

Before 5.6, I was 90 secs - 2 min late every game. After 5.6 I was 30 secs early. 5.9 hits, I'm once again up to 2 min late loading. 5.12 hits, I'm 45 secs early.....no other changes, just the patch.

6.11 to 6.13 I would get hung up in the loading screen while the game was in progress, would have to kill the game and restart to get in. This would happen every 4-5 games. 6.14, all gone.
