As a Roblox player, it is currently impossible to join a server after you get disconnected if the server never realises you’ve left
This can happen, for example, if:
- The client is disconnected but never gets a chance to tell the server
- The server crashes
When this happens, you cannot rejoin the same server or game instance, as your player becomes stuck in a limbo state on the server.
One way to fix this is to add a button to Settings which allows me to kick myself from the game server, to release my player from this limbo state.
This fixes itself after 20 minutes when Roblox realises the client has not responded, however, this is inconvenient because a lot can change in 20 minutes.
If Roblox is able to address this issue, it would improve my playing experience because I would be able to jump back into the same server if the server didn’t realise I disconnected.
