Abandoned Raid Lockout Timer

Six months ago I played this game, and almost never was disconnected.  I never had the "Equipping..." error, or any such errors with this game.

 

Now?  Now I come back and get "Equipping..." errors on raids.  And just now, I get "Leaving..." error after a successful raid.

 

I just killed all 10 defenders, capped flag, looted ammo, all 5 men on safe zone and click "Home".  I am met with "Leaving..." that won't finish.  I can type in chat, and I'm stuck on leaving.  I log back in and get no points for my effort, and a one hour abandoned lockout timer.  It's time to re-evaluate the Abandoned Raid Lockout Timer.  I get it, it's for cheaters who peace-out of a failed raid in the first minute.  Maybe if I'm inside the raid for 5+ minutes, just maybe I shouldn't get a lockout timer, just maybe I was there to fight all along.

 

Now I am sitting here, with my next raid groups twiddling their thumbs for the next hour.  Why?  Because your server had a hiccup.

 

This is extremely frustrating with long return times, to not only lose the earned points, but also be locked out for an additional hour.

 

It really is ridiculous.

Yup, super bummer.  Happens to me fairly regularly as well.  Can you think of an easy work-around CAG can implement to differentiate cheaters from server hiccups?

I have no idea, but with two hour return times I wish there was a better way.
