Disconnecting = Queue all day?

First of all, this is not a whine thread about queues being there. It's to be expected. I rather have queues now and a populated server later than no queues now and an empty server later.

My concern is that if you get disconnected, even for 1 second, you get thrown out of the game and have to sit in queue again. I've been having some connection issues lately resulting in connection losses lasting no longer than 2-3s. Enough to disconnect me from the game and having to queue all over again. I'm sure I'm not the only one experiencing this.

Wouldn't it be possible to give these kind of occurrences some kind of window of opportunity to get back in before getting placed in the wait line again? 5 minutes or something perhaps, usually enough to get online for most people after a normal DC. Or simply give network interruptions a longer "grace period" so when you do get disconnected and reconnected in under a few seconds, you would just get a huge lagspike instead of being thrown out instantly.

Thanks for reading, I hope this will be considered for future gamefixes.

So during my entire beta experience and the EGA I dc'd maybe 2 times each. And a few times I got thrown into the login screen. During the beta and the EGA I would actually still have my spot so I jumped into spot 1 and then I got into the server.

But now as of today 20/12-11 I have gotten booted twice for no reason and then I have to queue for atleast 40 mins when the queue timer says <25mins. What happened?

Maybe Bw kicks people out randomly so others can get in....

Its strange, I am almost in now a 3rd time if I crash again I prolly stop - as there is no point with those queues currently
