I get really frustrated when my game freezes upon loading the scenario or I lose my connection and the game resets and I get back on and I have received a penalty (the pink TK highlighting) making me look like a TK'er for the next 2-4 games. Or getting reported for being AFK when in reality I lost my connection and was disconnected. Its already bad enough that I would lose my credits, flags and camouflage credits. Can anything be done on the game-side to prevent losing those items or being tagged a TKs for "leaving early"?

The server cannot tell if your connection went bad or if you pulled the plug because you didn't like what you saw.

Don't wait too long to alt+F4 the game so you have a chance to get back. If the game is so frozen that you don't get the exit confirmation you can try to pull up the task manager and kill it from there and like with the alt+F4 you will have a chance to make it back in. If you end up doing a hard reset using your computer's power button you are unlikely to make it back in time.

That is exactly what have done numerous times, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesnt.

Thank you for the tip.

I have been disconnected, had my computer lock up and freeze without recovery. ALT-F4  my work for you but there should be some way that the server can detect the difference between it losing connection and me pulling the plug (Which I would never do as I even play with me being the only live ship on the map....

They could probably tell for ALT+F4 because the game asks if you really want to leave. However for a connection problem or simply pulling the plug on your router or modem there is no way for them to know it wasn't on purpose.
