Hey. I do buy in quarter at a time but in this case I promise you I was playing during a quarter and all of a sudden it came up with a message saying that the user kicked me and did I want to continue the game or leave without a penalty. I left and when I got to the main leaderboard screen a message came up saying that if I leave in the middle of a game that I would receive a penalty. It didn't say that I did receive one but that I would receive a penalty if I left during the middle of a game.
Had the quarter just started? Here's how the situation can arise:
When you have not yet bought in between quarters, you are a spectator. At that time, the other user can bring up the "Kick" menu to start
the process of kicking you out. As it stands, the user can stay on that kick menu for as long as they want (though they can't control the game while they do that). So, let's say they sit on the Kick menu for 30 seconds. While they sit idle on that menu, you press the Start button to buy into the next quarter. Maybe the quarter even starts. At that point, they press the confirm button on their Kick menu, and you get kicked.
At that point, you get a message saying you've been kicked and have the choice to Leave or Continue.
Here's where the bug exists: if you say "Leave" at that moment, it counts as you quitting, because the order of things gets confused. If you are kicked, the workaround is for you to select "Continue" and then bring up the Live menu and select "Leave This Game" a second time. ("Leave This Game" should not mention a penalty at that time.) Then you will not be penalised for them kicking you.
We're sorry for the inconvience and will fix this in the next update, but this workaround should help you avoid penalties in the meantime.
Note: if they had not
started the Kick process before you bought into the next quarter, the Kick option would become unavailable to them. They can only finish Kick actions they initiated before you bought in.
Okay it just happened again but this time I joined and was just a spectator and didn't get a chance to pick a player. The message said the user has just removed me from the game. Did I want to continue or leave without penalty.
By spectator, we mean you have not even pressed a Start button. The act of pressing a Start button means you are no longer a spectator, even if you haven't finished picking a player. If you had so much as pressed the Start button, this would make sense, and becomes the same situation as above. For now, you can solve this the same way: select "Continue" then bring up the Live menu again and should no longer say you will get a penalty.
If you have any other questions about these behaviours, it would be most appreciated if you could include photos of the messages you see on the screen next time you encounter them.
