  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] thehaikumaster Put me down as being 100% in favor of the quitter bans. Also, any chance we can have a similar soft-ban for people who get habitually booted from games for betrayals? It's the uglier side of the same coin and just as, if not more, annoying to those of us who just want to play the game.[/quote] Once again im saying something here about my booting issue. I am all for the idea of a small swing of the hammer for betrayers, but i cant seem to understand how the booting thing works. When i play a game and get betrayed i almost never get the option to boot, including when its completely obvious my team mate wanted to kill me. However when the rare situation of me accidentally killing one of my own because of a small mishap, such as a misfired shotgun shell that killed my team mate but also killed the enemy, i get booted immediently. Im not asking for a drastic change, i just need someone to explain the boot system in depth so i can understand how to be more careful, because everyone has misfired the rocket launcher more than once.

  • I also dont like the voting. its messed up. some ppl are afk when voting so it votes the default 4 them. instead of voting, it like it to be like halo 3 costom games type of chosing screen. i want it like this. 4 example: choose game(like invasion) Then choose game type(like Invasion slayer or normal invasion. it makes people less frustrated and makes ppl happies.

  • I only quit when I get thrown in Team Swat. I frickin' hate Team Swat... I wouldn't mind joining a game in progress. that is REALLY useful in games like MW2 when I see a friend playing and I want to join. Reach puts you in a queue but I hate having to wait the whole match

  • I love love love the idea of punishing quitters, Nothing I hate more than people who quit when they dont get what they want or when they start losing. However, i have a question regarding this, is there a time limit in which the banhammer will "reset". What i mean is, If i have a quit today, and a single quit tomorrow, and i only have a quit every day. Does it build up unti l the banhammer doesnt love me anymore? I personally would not abuse this. I ask because i dont quit, BUT i have had my internet die before :tear: Of the couple thousand halo 3 games i play, i have a penalty of somewhere in the ball park of 90 quits. and 90 percent of the time my internet died for either maintenance or some hiccup in my connection. I'm not a quitter, But said hiccups worry me in the long run and what punishment lies in wait if i get 10 quits in every couple hundred. I have quit before because of jerks who trashtalk on my team, but playing with friends and the automute feature have remedied that. I just don't want to get "banned" for a disconnect that registers as a quit, I know that there has to be a threshold SOMEWHERE so people that just unplug their box when they're unsatisfied with hos the game's going. I'm just worried about how it stacks up over the long run.

  • i agree the genades should be left like the are powerwise. but i still think they should look more like halo 3. these look like rotten pinapples. i still wish they would take off friendly fire for team objective games. to those who betray in one flag to get the flag, u all suck. stop betrayin. and armour lock should have a longer recharge time otherwise its a spam and the pistol i think, is a little overpowered. its basically a DMR with short scope. they should either weaken the pistol a bit or make the DMR a little stronger. i also think that it would be better if you could join games already in progress. that woul be better, faster and more fun.

  • All of the fixes sound great, however...watering down frag grenades ...again? It already takes more firepower to kill in Reach than in any other previous carnation of Halo. (Which is why the numbers of assists are through the roof and multi-kills are down) In the Halo 3 beta, the grenades were powerful and perfect...but then they were weakened severely for the final release. Can't we just leave the grenades alone? Obviously, you guys feel in the gut that they should be more powerful, that's why you keep making them that way for the beta releases.

  • i like the look of halo 3 genades better, the new ones look like rotten pinapples. they should keep the halo 3 look of genades, because they deffiently look the best. [Edited on 05.10.2010 2:49 PM PDT]

  • Marlowe fire, if you dont like the game type just try to kill people, that helps your team and you dont have to quit. quitting is for wimps who cant outlast a game they dont like.

  • the pistol should be weaken a bit cos its like as powerful as dmr. im liking the quitter ban idea but it might be better if it could tell the difference. [Edited on 05.10.2010 2:45 PM PDT]

  • well i dont think the pistol should be even more powerful..if anything i think it should at least be weaken by a little bit, because i get shot in the head 4 times (while im shooting back with the AR continuously) and they kill me and all i do is get their shields

  • That quitter ban better be able to distinguish when a player actually quits, and when they lag out, because i've already lagged out of like a million matches in the beta.

  • Im confused... since it doesnt negatively affect players to just sit still in a match and do nothing, does this new quitter ban increase the chance of me just saying F it whenever a gametype I dont like comes up. Currently whenever someone picks stockpile and I dont like it, I would like to leave right then and there(not always...) but the quitter ban, makes me more likely to just sit around and be a target for whoever, still weakening my team and giving the other team more points. Or for instance, in team slayer(for the sake of argument, lets say I hate it). and i just stay in the game. I give the other team tons of free kills, because i dont want to face the wrath of the quitter ban. Wouldnt it have just been better for my team if i left the match?

  • Is there anyway that you guys at bungie could include a mode that uses items like you did in Halo 3? I was a big fan of those.

  • Thank goodness for the reticule fix, that was/is killing me. Now if you would increase the pistol and dmr to a 4sk and increase the pistol clip to 12 i'd be one very happy Halo 1 zealot. [Edited on 05.10.2010 11:13 AM PDT]
