If a player disconnects from a kahoot, their screen will display a circling animation while it attempts to reconnect. Eventually, it should reconnect and the player can continue with their prior score.
For various reasons (some possibly beyond Kahoot!'s control) the automated reconnection can take a long time. In order to rejoin quickly, players tend to refresh kahoot.it. Then, even if they rejoin with the same nickname, their score is at 0. It would be great if scores persisted through refreshing kahoot.it as long as the kahoot is active and the same nickname is chosen.
Currently, players need to wait until kahoot.it reconnects on its own in order to preserve their score. Refreshing and manually rejoining will cause them to start with a score of 0.
