As part of the upcoming Tournaments Update, a new set of client-side connection quality indicators will be rolling out that will tell you what kind of connection issues you’re currently experiencing mid-match. That means that there will no longer be a single 'Red Triangle of Death' on the right side of your screen to cover all of the bases. You’ll also see a ‘!’ pop up next to your ping on the Scoreboard if one or more of these indicators are active while you’re playing.

The four indicators are:

  • Server Health: When the server itself is experiencing issues, like eating up too much memory
  • Packet Loss: Data being transferred between you and the server is lost
  • Latency Variance: When your ping isn’t holding steady, typically fluctuating 40ms-60ms
  • High Latency: Commonly known as “lag,” usually indicated by a high ping to the server

By splitting up connection issues into these four types, you’ll be able to address whatever issue you’re running into more quickly and with more information on hand.
