Bungie wants to ban me for an "unstable network connection?"

So I log into D2 today and get a message from Bungie saying they are going to restrict or ban my account because of my poor connection. Every other game I've ever played have not had a connection as horrible as Destiny. Every other PvP or pve experience I load into with another person results in a disconnection to the home screen. For the past 12 years I've only disconnected from a game because of my connection only a handful of times, it's strange because I played Halo 3 back in 2007 and the connection was phenomenal, and I have the same internet provider. Every game from Call of Duty to Overwatch to Dragon Ball games have flawless connection at the current moment but this one. Maybe if D2 didn't have a peer to peer connection in a shared world shooter it would help everyone out. Also, if I get told to do the troubleshooting guide for network connections one more time I'm going to blow a gasket, I've done them like once a week every week since the D1 beta and nothing has helped. Also why should I be penalized for my internet provider being below average even though every other game I play is perfectly fine? Imagine being suspended for living in an area where reception is mediocre but yet you have paid for every dlc in that same game just to have it removed. Thank you for your time if anyone actually answers.

  • Same thing happened to me bro ignore these jerks In the comments they dont know what they are talking about it's people like us who are willing to take action before anything actually bad happens. It's happening to alot of people. I know guys with worse connections than me and they don't get banned just because they don't play comp 😂 I wish you luck bro but with their evil license agreement they can straight ban you without letting you know or even helping. I've been playing this game for two years and I got banned for two weeks WHILE PLAYING A CRUCIBLE MATCH GL dude

    • Simple fact is that you are ruining pvp match after match for 7 to 11 other players at a time. If you can not or will not sort out your Internet issue then you need to stay away from the Crucible and Gambit.

        • 1. So you know your internet connection is bad (regardless of reasoning), yet you’re surprised that you’re getting restricted for playing on bad internet? 🤔 2. How do you think all your opponents(and possibly teammates) feel about you being laggy & hard(er) to kill simply because your connection isn’t keeping up? 3. What are your tested network stats (up/down speed, latency, jitter, etc) when running a test on here? http://pcm-intl.speedtestcustom.com 4. Are you on a wired or wireless connection? Is your service fiber optic, dsl, satellite, etc? [spoiler]5. Have you looked through the troubleshooting guides for ways to improve your connection?[/spoiler]

          • Thats a good thing. The more people who leave this trash game - the better.

              What have you actually done to try and find the problem? as there has to be a cause have you tried a trace route? are you dropping packets like crazy? is there an issue with your router? does your router have a built in firewall? as these can cause lots of issues... The two times I've had issues is when I switched to Virgin media in the UK they tend to have lots of exchange outages so a trace route when Im having issues shows that and I avoid playing pvp or p2p games while thats going on.... The other time was when virgin media sent me a new router and the built in firefall was very agressive... turning that off fixed the issue. If your a console player make sure to use a wired connection... and if its xbox... well expect any issue your having to be worse as xbox live acts up too if your connection is having issues and this creates a snowball effect.

              • Comparing your connection today to your connection 12 years ago is really irrelevant as connections change over time, components get worn out, some get replaced some do not. Here is bungie's post including their tips. [quote]Beginning soon, players with the most unreliable connections will receive an in-game warning. We know that connection quality is fluid, so don’t worry if you have occasional, temporary issues. If you receive one of these warnings, please visit the [url=https://www.bungie.net/en/Support/Troubleshoot?oid=12915]Network Troubleshooting Guide[/url]. If your connection does not improve, there are additional guides available that can help you in [url=https://us.battle.net/support/en/article/7871]diagnosing advanced network issues[/url]. If all else fails, contact your ISP for assistance. If your connection does not improve after an in-game warning, and we continue detecting a negative impact on other Guardians, restrictions from PvP activities may be applied to your account. If a restriction is applied to your account, you will be unable to participate in PvP for two weeks. If you continue to play on an unreliable connection that harms the experience of other players, that restriction may be extended.[/quote] ([url=https://www.bungie.net/en/Explore/Detail/News/47555]source[/url]) If for some reason you are not able to improve the stability of your connection, it is recommended to refrain from playing pvp activities as the negative side effects of your connection will lead to longer restrictions. [quote]Updated security policy and functionality so players who have been banned from competitive activities cannot access Gambit playlist[/quote] ([url=https://www.bungie.net/en/Explore/Detail/News/47677]source[/url]) [i]*I am not a Bungie representative, just a player trying to give the answers that are available.[/i]
