I was Penalized for something beyond my control!

I have long had a major issue with the ability to contact the game people with a issue.   Your issue MUST fit into their categories and I rarely seem to be able to fit them in and spend upwards of 30 minutes to an hour before becoming frustrated an quit even trying.      I suspect I'm not the only person with this issue.

Today I had clicked to enter Twilight when I was advised by workers doing a major renovation at our home they had run into a problem and had to turn off the home's electrical power ASAP!   I immediately click to leave the game waiting for the game to start que and it then asked if I wanted to leave the game and I clicked yes.   I then shut down both my computers with my other computer being caught when they pulled the power to the house while shutting down.    Then this evening when I turned out for Clan Battle I get a Notice I'm Pink and a Team Killer for 4 games.  Certainly not the 1st time, and usually I was guilty and take them without a word.   BUT this was beyond my control and yet I can't even explain it via their "locked in complaint" categories?    This was absolutely something I had not control over and I feel is 100% unjustified!      But I'm sure my complaint will fall on deaf ears but it infuriates me a great deal as I try to go by the rules and always have my entire life.    This is just flat out wrong, indefensible, and disgraceful on the part of WoWs!

Respectfully submitted!

It's just pink.

Accept that WG have no clue if your power was shut off or you got salty and turned off your computer.

Accept that pink makes a slap on the wrist look like an actual punishment.

Accept that crap happens and move on.

The first offense is 2 games pink and there is no penalty associated with being pink.

My power has gone out while playing.  Got pinked.

My internet burped while playing.  Got pinked.

I had a PC issue that caused it to lock up while playing.  Got pinked a couple of times.

Real life jumped up and grabbed me while playing.  Got pinked.

Not once after any of these incidents did I get upset about getting pinked.  They were uncommon circumstances.  I played my pink games until I wore it off, and life went blissfully on.

@dbw86

I am confused.  What is the penalty?

Hope the renovations turn out well and that no one was hurt.  It can be such a pain trying to play while people work around you.  Glad you were able to make it back for clan wars!  Did your clan do well?

Let us know how you were penalized and maybe we can help!

Keep your powder dry Captain.

That if you keep have this problem you will eventually be banned to co-op for awhile.

@dbw86 The system cannot tell if you had the problem you said you had or if you had just pulled the plug because you didn't like what you saw when you loaded in, it is no fault.

Nonsense!  Most of my tickets don't, so I just choose one close and proceed.  

Have you seriously not filed a ticket because you couldn't find the right category?


Now, that said, give it up.  Support won't interfere with the automated system.  In fact, they can't.  It would have to escalate to the devs in Russia.

No one cares. Being pink isn't a real punishment, there is no consequence so I don't understand the point in crying about it.

Notice I'm Pink and a Team Killer for 4 games

According to the automatic system, you did it more then once in order to get 4 games...
I TKed a pumpkin and I got only 2 games...

Anyone goes AFK or cant long on to the server, its 2 games pink (unless if you tried then the server cancels the pink warning).

Now 4 game pink.... That is no innocent intent there... IMO, if their working on the electrical grid in my complex, no way I am starting up a game... Let alone doing it two times and twice getting pinked (2 afks =4 games pink)...

Therefor, based on the evidence of negligence noted above by the OP on being insisting on playing a game in hazardous conditions... I hereby find the defendant, WOWS automatic AFK system...

Not liable.... Without Prejudice

If this is the worst thing that happens to you TODAY, you're one of the luckiest guys I know; go buy a lottery ticket.

Ahhhhhh, from the thread title I thought he had already been penalized.  I didn't realize this was about a potential, sometime in the future, maybe penalty.

There are a lot of people that do not understand how the TK/AFK system works, even people with thousands of matches, the OP is apparently one of them.

Yeah I've got bigger issues. Like keeping myself from getting too worked up over what way Disney and co. will screw over Star Wars this time.

Exactly that, we don't have a way to distinguish that, and making some exceptions or distinguishing (hard exit/soft exit) will welcome the possibility of abuse, which isn't great for an online game.
Also, you can enter Clan Battles when being pink, since it's your team's choice to take you into the game, which is different from random.
