In recent days, Overwatch users started reporting on reddit about a bug that has effect on the gaming experience, alters their statistics and bannea them seasonally. According to reports, the problem occurs when the player leaves a game session right at the moment when information is being loaded; obviously it is very difficult to measure the moment this happens, but at the beginning players return to the standby screen, the system tries to assign a new session but fails, returns to the standby screen and so on. After resetting the game, some users noticed that their statistics had declined, in some cases up to 400 and 600 points, and worse: they had received a seasonal ban.
