So, my computer has just reseted itself for some reason, and this is what I got after joining back quickly: 




I've lost quite a nice amount of money, and no XP gained of course, but clearly I was contributing to the battle. What's the reason behind this? It's very demoralizing after such efforts.

In frontline you get 0 xp and credits for deserting on purpose or not...

I'm sure it feels a bit screwy, but there's no simple way a system could tell the difference between someone who has a genuine computer issue and someone who ragequits with Alt+F4.

Yeah, I've just read the lines at WG's official page.

Maaaaan, this clearly sucks. It say's we have 5 minutes to rejoin. What if the freaking battle ends in 1 minutes after my computer goes KaBOOM? (which just happened)

Yeah, its harsh. I persuaded a friend to update WoT and give frontlines a try and in his very first game he crashed to desktop and got 0xp. Not a great introduction and a bit of an additional kick in the teeth if you've just had a frustrating crash. But at the same time not getting anything for one game isn't the end of the world and they need to discourage people from dropping out whenever things aren't going their way as it ruins the game mode for everyone else.

I was wondering about those zero readings...

 

My computed developed that blue screen that forces reboot, some driver code error or something. I've noticed my PC starts acting up, and the first thing right after is 'Steam is updating'...:sceptic:

I guess you're right. To be honest I'm calmed down now, and I kinda like the idea. Of course, I may become a serial killer for my losses today, but this rule could be useful for randoms as well.

Or is it also in randoms? If not, why not? : )))))

But you cant rejoin a game once you've crashed/quit?

You can. Got to make sure you rejoin fast enough on the same server.

 

@OP, yea it sucks, but normally such crash should be a rare thing & losing out on the XP/credits of one game isn't the end of the world. The alternative would be far worse tbh, people abusing a grace period to quit when the game doesn't go their way.

It is in randoms, but it doesn't kick in straight away.

 

First time you get warned, after 2/3 times you will recieve 0 xp and credits. If it continues you will continue to receive 0xp and credits for a while.

Not that it is any of my concern, but what is so cuddly about your PC?
