Mute bans are lame

I recently made a thread about [url=http://www.bungie.net/Forums/posts.aspx?postID=59056621&viewreplies=true]Mute bans[/url] being unfair. I said I didn't think that they where justifiable which apparently they are so I just want to talk to a representative of Bungie because as a customer of theirs I want them to know that I don't feel like i'm being treated fairly.

  • People still have the choice to listen to you by the option of "unmuting". If they chose not to, they're more than welcome to exercise that option. There's nothing you can do and you're not being treated unfairly. Get over it, and stop worrying about something so pathetically unimportant. [Edited on 04.13.2011 1:04 PM PDT]

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Loaf [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Hank Here's a good question, that I haven't seen anyone ask: [I]How do you know you were mute banned?[/I][/quote] Obviously people have already verified that it's real here unlike bungie. If I got a message in game saying I was mute banned by kid who didn't want to hear me I would be pissed. It's not up to the jerks who can mute you just because they know it contributes to the ban. They have the power to mute your voice and choose to avoid future encounters with you and now Bungie just had to take it a step further and do this lame ass mute ban thing. [/quote] Again, [I]how do you know you're mute banned?[/I] Yes, of course it's real, Bungie admitted it back in the Beta. But some kid doesn't decide who decides, "Oh, I don't like you talking, MUTE." doesn't mean you get mute banned. I highly doubt you were mute banned.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] xMaJoR cRaBsx I personally dont play online with player chat on. I have been in too many games where people would curse and say really offensive things like f@g. Personally I think its good because it keeps people like f@g off the chat. I do know what you mean though op. It is unfair but what are we gonna do. [/quote] Dude, it doesn't even matter if people say that kind of thing to you. It's going to be okay, calm down.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] countavery Loaf, I doubt anything except for a thread locking will shut you up, Most people mute for a reason, and its usually over talking, abusive language, or just being outright annoying. almost everyone that I know that has been mute banned is one of the above, so if you can prove that you havent been ANY of those, I will belive you were banned by trolls, but at the time you havent showed any of that, and you have little logic in your posts, your self centered, and the bad part for you is this: NO.ONE.GIVES.A.-blam!-.[/quote] So, what did I do wrong? eh!? I just got back from an hour long workout and i'm not sure if the only thing that will "make me shut up" is a lock. I think you just can't handle talking to other people online so you sling all sorts of stuff like "self centered" and whatnot and that doesn't really mean anything except for you're jelly and I feel a little sorry for you and if i'm not sorry, I really don't care. All I know is that it's unfair and I don't know what the hell is up with it because every most no one talks and then people will start talking and say "hey did you know you where muted?" I know it's real because they tell me that they've never met me before and i'm muted. I just wish I could have had someone to talk to about this besides the flood. Someone who actually cares about the rules and would be diplomatic and stuff, like some sort of representative. This really pisses me off, flood.

  • as one of two people that were intrumental in changing how the mute ban works(Hylebos and I ran a 3500+post thread on it that got it's functionality changed) you WERE doing something that caused you to be banned. It is not based on people muting you now, it is based on Decibel levels coming through your mic and constant sound. This means if your mic is constantly producing static or you are yelling through your mic, or your TV is so loud the sound echoes through your mic, YOU WILL BE BANNED. these are things that are in your control, that piss people off. It also means that people can't abuse the system to make it easier for you to get banned.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Loaf [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Recon Number 54 [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Loaf So, I don't care about my rights and i'm aware that I have none, I just want to have a good time online. [/quote] Breaking my own mute ban for a moment. So you are saying that your ability to have a good time online is dependent on your voice being played through the headphones and speakers in the living rooms of strangers around the world? You must REALLY have important things to say.[/quote] I just said that I know from experience that discretion of other players aint a part of the online experience. What is this about playing through speakers in people rooms? There is an option on the Xbox to make people's voices play through the headset! Why can't you just let online be and not try to make this kind of change? It makes no sense. [/quote] Recon he is either incapable of understanding your argument or you are being trolled.

  • Recon 54 is a communications Gravemind. [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Recon Number 54 [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Loaf [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Recon Number 54 [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Loaf So I just don't this this constitutes fairness. [/quote] Fairness has a pretty simple test. Flip the participants. If you have ever muted or placed a voice complaint against another player online, then you consider it fair that you use the tools provided by game developers and/or XBL. If you have, then you just don't like that it is YOU who are on the receiving end.[/quote] Okay, how are you not putting to much control in the hands of online players? I mute little kids very easily who are yelling before the game. So, i'm on the receiving end of what? what am I receiving beside plain unfairness at the hands of kids I meet online? Who's to say a person is being fair at all? A person could mute you for a million reasons and I have to be muted for weeks and months I hear! I feel like it's unfairly singling out people online. It is not that big a deal to just be able to speak online itself, [i]I get that[/i], what i'm concerned about is simply that it's really lame. Why do you have to change the rules so much?[/quote] What I read was, "of course I should be allowed to use these tools as I see fit, after all I trust myself. But I don't trust those OTHER people to use them responsibly, especially since they might use them against me." It's not "unfairly singling people out", if you are voice banned by XBL, it is because enough people took the time to file a complaint and XBL responded. If enough people have blanket mutes (they don't hear anyone but friends) that is how they choose to spend their time on XBL (it's no different than if they unplugged their headsets). Are you saying that you should have the authority to come into someone else's living room even if they have said that unless they know you, they don't want you there?[/quote]

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Loaf If it does't matter than why do people bother replying? I'll leave if that's what you jerks want me to do. You would have probably already muted me if we where online like that and stuff. This sucks. I 'm going to go do something that doesn't involve arguing with jerks[/quote] Is anyone really being that mean? No. Just get over it, there is nothing you can do.

Are they really laying all of the accountability on me and when for whatever reason I get muted they make it a ban?How many times have you muted someone to be civil and friendly? Online is a hot bed for jerks and bullies who will do anything to get you rilled up because they have nothing better to do. I'll drop it when I feel satisfied.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] rAnDomOSSiTyy I agree it is totally stupid. A mature rated game needs someone to hold my hand on who I can/cannot mute lolz. This ban, is due to the amount of whiny children on this forum that cannot move their thumbs to mute the idiot. The removed visible truskill is due to kids that instead of seeking self-esteem therapy whine on here saying that people make fun of me for not being a 50. (Sob) Your girlfriend must hate you... It's the kids (you know who you are) that cry and whine over every little thing that upsets your delicate self-esteem because you were pampered as crap growing up, that have taken away a lot of nice things. Like freedom to mute/see my skill level. I play MLG very often and rarely stray into the other playlists. However if I choose to, everyone in the lobby has muted me and unless they are like me, and unmute all the perma-mutes I cannot even socialize in the game I paid for. I suppose if your age showed under 12 on XBL and it perma-muted I'd be in heaven but in MLG I mute the opposing team so they cannot hear me, not because they are "annoying". - The things in Reach are for sure going to be noted by future developers on what NEVER to do to a game.[/quote] You see, I pulled this off the reach forum. I'm not the only one who thinks this. And i'm not as big of an immature baby as you jerks who hardly know me make me out to be. And I play most big team battle so this is likely to happen.
