Hello everyone, I’ve been having problems with H2H matching for 2 days now. My last 3, were all disconnected turns. I know you will answer first, is your internet connection or phone strong enough to play H2H matches? The answer is; YES. There are currently more than 180 people on the Global Discord who have responded to the reported bug and are experiencing this as well. Hopefully this can be fixed soon, as I’d like to continue the H2H grind and there will be H2H games in the event on Friday. Thank you.

All time at the beginning of match, after first pass.. “You were disconnected” And I can’t access h2h for duration of a game. Happened about 5-6 times for 1 day. 2 kinds of disconnection … “Network lost” – with my home Wi-Fi, and was happened with LTE.. too Most of the time message “you were disconnected”, but my real connection was perfectly fine. I was able to play atack mode and anything else, till I receive “your game was finished…” Help
