Electronic Arts has patched up the Xbox 360 version of Battle for Middle-Earth II so that the game now punishes people who disconnect before the end of a game in the hope of avoiding a loss.

Patch 1.01 is an automatic update, which makes it so that if you disconnect on your opponent in a multiplayer match, you will get an automatic loss, while he or she gets an automatic win.

The patch also sorts out an issue with friends not showing up in the lobby, and corrects a couple of other minor problems. You can read more about it on the game's official website.
