You will be issued a pug leave anytime you leave a server before the pug has completed and the stats screen has appeared.
Below is a breakdown of the pug leave system and the associated penalties.
- 1st Leave (-1 karma) - 15-minute ban except when rejoining the same pug
- 2nd Leave (-2 karma) - 1-hour ban except when rejoining the same pug
- 3rd Leave (-4 karma) - 2-hour ban except when rejoining the same pug
- 4th Leave (-8 karma) - 24-hour ban except when rejoining the same pug
In addition, you must rejoin the pug before your server slot has expired for your pug leave to be removed. Any karma lost due to leaving the server is not restored when rejoining the same pug.
How do I get a pug leave removed?
Our staff do not have the ability to remove Pug leaves and regardless of how you may have received one: all you can do is wait out the temporary ban.
How long does a pug leave last?
All pug leaves are only temporary and reset 24 hours after the first leave except when you receive four Pug leaves within twenty-four hours in which case the ban extends for twenty-four hours after your last leave.
