Common Problems

I was playing a match and was disconnected by the update for the Summer Games, so I lost SR and got a suspension

When a required update is necessary in Overwatch, the server will push the update to your game only when you leave an active match. This means that if you disconnect from a game, it will push the update to your client when you try to reconnect. That is working as intended.

If you are having problems disconnecting from Overwatch, to prevent issues with the leaver penalty or updates happening when you're not ready, visit the Overwatch Disconnection Problems article for assistance with troubleshooting your connection.
