How severe is your issue? Major impacts to gameplay
What happens when the bug occurs? I am kicked from the game due to the sever pairing me with a squadmate too high of a rank for me to play with in ranked play. I get an abandon penalty and have lost 200+ RP so far because of this issue.
What should be happening instead? The sever shouldn't pair me with someone I am unable to play with.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? As a gold rank, queue up with a plat in your party for ranked. Get paired with a Diamond teamate. Lose RP and get match abandon penalty.

I was trying to play ranked with a friend one tier higher than me, I am gold and he was plat. when we queued up our other squad mate was diamond. as we loaded into the game, I was booted with a message stating that only a tier difference is allowed in ranked, even though the third who was two tiers higher than me was not in a party with us. I received an abandon penalty and lost RP after being kicked from the game. Anyone have this happen to them?

Kicked in Ranked for Tier difference in squad

★★ Novice

I was solo queuing in ranked and was teamed with a Gold IV and a Plat IV, I'm in Diamond IV. I was able to select a character, but as soon as the match began I was kicked with the message saying the Tier difference in your quad was too large, and then was given an abandon penalty. Is there a way to fix this? If this continues I'm afraid I'm going to keep getting abandon penalties when the game matches me with lower Tier players, and then kicks me for the team it placed me with.

What happens when the bug occurs? After legend selection I was booted from the game and the message (something to this effect I can't remember the specific) "Greater than allowed rank difference in squad" but I'm queuing solo and received an RP penalty and abandonment penalty.
What should be happening instead? The game shouldn't boot me out of a squad it created and stick me with a penalty for it.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Couldn't say, it's the first time I've seen that specific issue.

Abandon penalty and a huge chunk of RP for a server issue is incredibly frustrating.

Exact same issue and the board auto flagged my post as spam, so great. Good to know people are on this Angry.

**Update: seems they unflagged it but come on this is clearly an issue.

Same just happened to me but I was solo queueing: I'm diamond, got matched with a gold, got kicked and penalized. I've been matched with gold as diamond before, but never have been kicked and penalized for it until now.

I'm Diamond IV as well and that seems to be a recurring trend among the other posts.
