What I’d like to see is a one-sided win when a connection issue happens. i.e. on your end it would display “connection lost!” but you would not lose a star. Your opponent would get an “opponent disconnected”, and gain a star.
It would be very nice, It would be great if everyone were sincere, but, this would not work at all, Who remembers at the beginning of the game, when you lost like 10 consecutive times and the game gave you a pack? then everyone surrendered, nobody played, as soon as the fight began they gave up, and many of us wondered, why they did it, you know ...
if people find out that they do not lose stars by losing the connection, will force the connection error as soon as they see the first legendary, or see that their 4 initial cards aren't the best, it is without a doubt, a disaster, for that reason I respect the current system, although it is rough, it is the best, believe me, you can not trust the '' honesty '' of the players en masse, even when there is a karma system that calculates the players who surrender the most, this is more of a tedious job for EA.
After having spent a few months analyzing all this, I have noticed certain things, I think it is important to share them here:
1. always wins a star when the opposing player leaves furious ''rage quit'': when the player is already seen that you have won, that you have played a certain card that has enraged your opponent, the countdown appears, a circle in the middle, until the message of "opponent disconnected" appears, you earn a star.
2. Your connection was lost, your modem stopped working or something, is the same case, the circle appears in the middle, only that at the end, it will tell you to check your connection. You lose a star, your enemy gain a star.
3. third case: poor performance of your device, I've played with a tablet (it barely supports the game, it's the one I have to play outside of the computer), when medium freezes or there is a slowness, your game is slower than your opponent's game, finally your game advanced and quickly moved, unfortunately, it is out of sync, enters the turn of his opponent, does nothing, the circle appears, then it says that your opponent disconnected, the game ends, you don't receive a star. Simply, the server did not lose the connection with your opponent, it just found that our game was misaligned by low performance, this is almost the same as '' there is a problem with your game''. This has happened to me many times with my tablet, when it freezes I know that the game is over and I will only lose a star, I have never received a star when the opponent appears disconnected for this reason.
The other case is, when the circle does not even appear, simply suddenly appears '' check your connection '', however your connection is fine, I am believing that this is the same case, simply your game had a problem, perhaps bad synchronization.
my theory: since the last update, they have added many things, more features, the game is heavier and requires more performance, simply the majority of the devices are not supporting the game at all, and therefore, this error appears to many players, and even see their opponent disconnect, but they do not receive a star, because in reality their enemy did not disconnect, your game lost the balance. OR: this version has failures and causes certain games to lose that balance, It is also possible, I am not the one to affirm which of the two cases it is. I can only say that with my tablet, when it freezes, this happens.
even before all this, I think EA or whoever is behind the game design could be more specific with these errors, and not show everything under a '' Connection error '' message, since all this mess has been originated by this lack of clarity, so that for many months, we will continue reading the same thing "there is a connection error I suspect, it is a hacker! '' over and over again.

hi @bythehill , I will gladly clarify things that may be misinterpreted from my previous post.
first, it is my analysis, and I just wanted to share them so that everyone can analyze also, I said it: After having spent a few months analyzing all this, I have noticed certain things, I think it is important to share them here.
with this I want to clarify that everything is based on my experience.
BlazinsZ how do you know that when you see the check your connection error message that your opponent gains a star. How do you know anything about their end if they are not there with you?
you're right, I do not observe it, I '' suppose '' that it is so, anyway, you are also assuming that the enemy does not gain anything, how do you know? you were there? no, the only way is to add the person with whom we played the last time and ask him, whether or not he/she won a star.
You seem sure that the issue could be players' internet connection. I checked my connection download speed as well as the pings and latency and whatever else the program measured and there was no issue with my connection.
I'm going to put back what I said:'' The other case is, when the circle does not even appear, simply suddenly appears '' check your connection '', however your connection is fine. ''
At no time I said it was because of connection problems, since, (I'll clarify again that all this is based on my experience), my connection has always been good, what was wrong is the performance of my tablet.
I finish reminding you that it is a theory of me, and I also said:'' i'm not the one to affirm which of the two cases it is. I can only say that with my tablet, when it freezes, this happens. ''
I know that many of you have been losing stars inexplicably, in my case it has not been like that, when i don't receive, it is because of that detail that I told you, just notice if when it happens, the game was slow at that moment ?, that's all, it's information that I share to complete @bythehill , I understand that your case or that of others can be very different.
