    Spontaneous Deserter?!

    I experienced this twice, l chose to join random BG, so that I would test the new skills and stuff in 4.0.1, both of the times WSG popped. So I enter, and I am not stressing the crashes and game freezes I had at all, even though they were pretty annoying too. The thing is, in both times I entered the WSG, after a while (maybe 3-4 mins) I automatically got teleported out of the BG, to dalaran (which I entered the BG from) and I got the deserter debuff!

    Now this keeps giving me 15 mins wait time before I can try again, so I dont know about other battlegrounds, but what the heck is that kick? I dont go afk, dont get that Report Away debuff. In fact first time I got kicked was in the middle of a fight...

    Anyone else got this and/or knows how to solve it? Because Im really annoyed at this >:[

    It's a strange bug that was occuring on the PTRs as well. Seems blizz was just in a rush to get this patch out =/

    I'm getting this. in addition, my game crashes whenever i pick up a flag in WSG--either to carry or return. BG's are completely unplayable right now.

    It's bugged. Something fun i realised is that I couldn't see myself on the scoreboard before i got kicked out. So probably it bugs. Let more people join then supposed to. Then after a while kicking out the people that got to many of.

    Just happened to me, returned flag....screen freeze, I've had no problems with any crashes etc. until this bg incident..

    Similar thing happened to me. I was in WSG and before the match actually begun my wow crashed when I was trying to get mage food. I restarted it and it happened again. I restarted it a third time and 5 min. into the BG I got deserter. Me and my friends were having a good laugh though, we were saying a rogue had poisoned the mage food lol.

    I've experience this in BG's as well as in LFD randoms when clicking to help summon a mage table or lock cookie well. Seems to be something to do with that in particular, though I've had other DC's as well.

    My friend won a BG and got deserter :>
    and to be honest so far this patch is sooo full of bugs I would only wish they could have spent more time fixing it and left arena season up and made the patch less buggy.

    Actually this happened to me every now and then in WG before the 4.01 patch (maybe 3 times in total since i started playing again). I just spawned again behind the fortress, mounted up and everytime my screen froze on the way down to the ground level of the fortress. Exiting WoW with the taskmanager and starting it back up again got me back in but still annoying.

    P.S. I never have any issues anywhere btw

    or it was an unknown bug, just because its blizzards game doesn't mean they can catch every single thing that slips through the cracks. give it some time.
