Are you using any software with an overlay? No
Which Legend were you playing (if applicable)? n/a
Which Legends were your squad mates using (if applicable)? n/a
Where did the issue occur? In the lobby (waiting area before the match)
Which part of the map or menu were you in? If you don't remember the exact name, please describe the area or what you were trying to do in the menu. Just finished an arenas game
What were you doing when the issue occurred? E.g. respawning a squad mate at a beacon, using an ability, a squad mate left the game. Going back to lobby after winning arena
Did your squad mates also experience the issue? Yes
How many matches had you played in a row before the issue occurred? 5
When did this happen? (dd.mm.yy hh:mm) 03/06/21 22:45
How often does the bug occur? Occasionally (10% - 49%)
How severe is your issue? Major impacts to gameplay
What happens when the bug occurs? In the last round of the last game we played in arenas 2 of the enemy players quit. We killed the last player. We got the champions screen Going back to lobby 2 of us got the message that we had got an abandonment penalty We have now been blocked for 10 mins even though we won arenas and nobody on out team quit
What should be happening instead? You should only get the abandonment penalty if you quit arenas during the match not after the winner as declared
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? 1) Play arenas. 2) Once the winner is declared exit the champions award post match animations. 3) Also, possibly reproduce by getting 2 people to quit on the last game when your team will win the match, but more likely 2) above/

I was streaming when this happened and can clip a video of the issue to show that we definitely won and nobody on our team quit arena. The end of the game where we received the ban is here:

EDIT: I think the problem is caused because we exited the Champions winners footage at the end of the match. Players should not be penalised for leaving once the winners are declared. Once the match ends the winning team members and loosing team members should be able to quit the post winning animations without receiving an abandonment penalty.

@AddSolossRespawnI mean Arenas did need penalties, I kept leaving myself but once I get a penalty or 2 it should sink in I just hope they change the ‘’leave game’’ button so its not as similiar to BR... because thats going to be an issue you just pause on a controller and hit x or A twice in half a second without even thinking about it while on rogue company you have to physically go down 3-4 options and then click it to see a warning message and usually by then you don’t want to click it anymore but on apex its literally pause and you leave the game instantly and its just too easy to leave when your raging

@jimi2dragoon Has happened twice to me. Both times the opposing squad quit and disconnected from the game resulting in a default win, waited for the summary screen to appear before leaving, but received penalties both times.

It's worth noting that the final screen showed "leave match" as if the match was still in progress despite being on the summary screen. It seems that the game does not consider a game "complete" if all opposing players quit.

I don't even know of any work arounds in the case this happens. It seems that if the game ends this way, you will get the penalty unless you are not in a premade and wait for one of your teammates to leave first.

This has happened both with 1 opponent and 3 opponents leaving the game. Both with penalties.

@Serenetiix This is a game full of bugs, it's always been buggy, and every patch they introduce yet another bug. This one is perhaps the most annoying so far. EA: STOP FORCING YOUR DEVELOPERS TO RELEASE EARLY AND INVEST IN A PROPER QUALITY CONTROL PROCESS IT'S 2021 FOR THE LOVE OF BOB.

Just had this exact issue on the PS4 version, both my squad mates received the penalty, but I didn’t because I left after them. This needs a patch fast before people get day or week long penalties just for leaving a game they won.
