So, once again, there was a disconnect in a energy related location that caused the battle to be completely consumed with no reward. Of course almost everyone has experienced this at least once. The problem with it is how it interreacts with the event leaderboards.
Since it is unlike PvP and doesn’t take the X highest scores, every single point matters. A single disconnect is the difference in 100s of gems while also costing an investment of gems. This can lead to situations where a single disconnect can cause the difference of earning or losing gems due to the instability of the game.
In the most recent tier X event, I had 100% flawless score, the only one on the leaderboard with it at the given gem tier within the tier, yet a single disconnect resulted in the lost of 500 gems, which apparently according to the game is worth $5 apparently. I would like my lunch back. XD
While I, and likely others, have lost 1,000s of gem value from disconnects, it is really starting to get annoying when game modes require spending this resource and then decides to disconnect to lose the resources invested. It is one thing to not get them in the first place, but disconnects in events actively reduce resources from the player.
