OW - Rejoining a comp game and still losing SR with a win

Hello, this is a very frustrating issue.

This is the second time in months that I get dc, quickly rejoin during the game and win… still I get a penalty. This is extremely frustrating as it does not follow the official Overwatch competitive rules listed here for penalties: https://playoverwatch.com/en-us/news/20167051/

It clearly states:

In Competitive Play, leaving a game early or stepping away from your computer during a match will make you ineligible to join a new game until the original match has been completed. There is an option to rejoin an in-progress game—however, failure to rejoin will result in a penalty.

So easy to understand, you don’t rejoin you get a penalty, you manage to rejoin before the game is over, you’re fine. But this guideline is not respected in my case.

Can somebody assist regarding this bug that happened twice already? I contacted the support who mentioned the forums for technical bugs like this.

Of course, I can provide specific details about the games so they can be investigated.

Thank you for your feedback.
