Matchmaking adds players in battles with minimum 5 minutes of battle time remaining.
So in that case, the "heat of battle" rule doesn't apply.

And if you finish first in the losing team, only then your reputation points will remain unchanged, otherwise, they'll decrease if you are in the losing team.
That's how the current system works.

unfortunately that is how it works, the first player of a losing team in silver and master league will get -0 reputation loss, while second player will lose about 30 to 40 rep, there is no way of gaining rep with a defeat in such leagues.

they should be changing this with the next update.

I joined a losing team with a few minutes left in the battle and lost 40+ reputation points. TOTALLY NOT FAIR!

Not a bug

I know this is often frustrating, but this is not a bug.
However, you can give your feedback on the forum.

Is it a bug when you join a losing team in the last 2-3 minutes and lose 40+ reputation points?  I thought it was changed if you joined in this situation you would not lose points.

Under review

In that case, I'll have it looked at.

Thanks, again, not sure if that is just limited to the Mac OSX.  In the past I know it was fixed and if I joined a battle late in the game and lost I would not lose Rep points.  It happened to me last week and I was surprised by it.

So, I was added with 5+ mins remaining, (I can't remember) but within 1-2 minutes the game was so one-sided it gave the 30 second countdown and finished the game and I lost 40 rep points after playing no more than 2 minutes.  In this case, I don't think it is fair to lose REP points for so little game play.

Yeah, that must have happened. You can suggest on the forum that when the early battle termination triggers soon after a player joins a losing team, his reputation points should remain unchanged.
