Elite streak reset unfairly.

Just lost a huge streak for placing 6th despite the fact my bangalore team mate died and left at the start of the game.

 

My other teammate was dead too, why did I lose my streak?

@DaAceXD "Streak forgiveness" is when you don't hit top 5, when you're on a Streak. Your Streak is gone, but you're still able to play in Elite. 

Loss Forgiveness is different, and should mean the loss doesn't count. @Wingmannedbro There were some changes to reduce Loss Forgiveness issues in the recent patch, but it sounds like it can still happen.

I'd say you answered it in your own comment.

This is how ranked games normally work, so Respawn is kind enough to Give us a head start in the Elite queue's.

Read my post again.

 

I clearly pointed out we had a deserter since start of the game.

 

You normally don't lose your streak if your team mates are quitters.

 

I lost my streak on a technicality.

@Wingmannedbro Had you recently received any loss forgiveness for teammates dropping? I assume the person who dropped was a random and not a friend, is this the case?

Streak forgiveness still resets your streak.

You just don't have to play the normal apex to try again.

 

So after a 20 streak you don't have to do the easiest part of the top 5 streak.

 

So the Term ''Forgiveness'' is just as useless and meaningless as ''ELITE'' when used by Apex legends.

Forgiveness is kinda like a big slap in your face.

 

My friend has a huge streak then got online and it sayd FORGIVENESS.

He stopped playing for the rest of the day because this forgiveness kinda throws salt in your already deep wound.

Yeah I had loss forgiveness I think 2 times before in that streak, I was playing with random squad mates the whole day, so had quite a lot of quitters.

 

Is it possibly capped at giving only an X amount of loss forgiveness per streak, cause that would explain why my streak was reset.
