Should Idlers and quitters be fined?

Today I was stuck with two idlers in the iron banner. They did nothing but stand around, picking their noses, then going completely still while the other team kicked our asses. Then they quit the game. As you can guess, I was rather miffed. Something needs to be done about rampant idlers and quitters. Banning never really worked that well on halo reach, so what I propose is that users be required to link a credit or debit card to their Destiny profiles. If they idle for more than 3 minutes, then a small charge will be applied to their card for every minute past that, perhaps $1 per minute. If they quit, then the fine will be $10. All the proceeds would go to charity to help people fight cancer. I think this would be a great motivator for people to stay in the game. What say you?

  • $1 per minute is way too low! They're wasting very valuable time. Should be a lot higher imo.

    • As much as I hate AFKers, this is -blam!-ing retarded, do you think bungie would risk loosing so many players for implementing a stupid feature like that?

    • Satire tags are bullshit if a post is ever edited. It immediately removes any and all credibility.

            • I hope this isn't serious. Some people have stuff to do and they might have to leave or quit. Fining then would be retarded. It's not that serious

              • Ok, ok, i with ya. How about they get fined glimmer, BUT, the rewards for crucible go up. Say, 3 marks a loss and 5 marks a win? 2/3 is just ridiculous. yes, lol, i noticed the tag but people really do get bent about afk'ers in crucible.

              • I think players that intentionally leave a game (e.g. hold down the go to orbit button) before the match is over should be given a cool down befor re-entering another PvP match... maybe 10 minutes. I think that would deter a lot of players from leaving. Regarding idlers, not sure.
