The developers of Arena of Kings have launched an update recently and it implemented major changes - one of which is the removal of the solo queue. It has been replaced by Quick Play and 3v3 Premade Team.

Aside from that, the game now has a new rating system. Basically, all ratings will start at zero. You will accumulate points quickly until you reach a predetermined MMR or matchmaking rating. To help you with that, you will not lose any ranking points until you've reached the system MMR.

Anyway, when you get disconnected during a game, you will now auto relog after the match ends. The developers said that fixing the random disconnects is a huge undertaking and requires more time to be fully resolved. Additionally, the bug where you get stuck online is now fixed.
