Seriously, I think the ban should last longer, maybe 2 or 3 hours. 1 hour is easy to pass. You go grab lunch, come back and you can start playing again. If the ban was longer, you'd have to wait and wait and wait. Hard for the folks with spotty wifi though. But then this won't really hurt the normal players (even the ones with bad wifi) and it seriously cramps the playstyle of the people who disconnect every battle they lose.
I hope in Gen 6 disconnecting becomes the same as conceding the battle, so that the person can keep their win and record the video if they want. And remove the hour-ban. Let the disconnectors come back and get DQ'd sooner IMO.
